Booking your flight

Since 2010 and the introduction of drug testing for marijuana schools are reluctant to pay the flights up front just in case the teacher fails the test and is deported. This means the onus is on you to fund your flight out to Korea. Once you have passed the health check, have the ARC and have opened up a bank account you will be refunded the price of the flight in Korean Won. ALL of our schools have paid the flight money so don’t worry about receiving your flight money back.
