STEP 2 - Collect Documents - Australia

6. Completed Health Check form


When filling out the health check form you must be a truthful as possible.  Within the first month or so after your arrival in Korea you will have to go to your local hospital and complete a health check. The check involves a blood test, urine test, eyesight test as well as measurements of your height and weight. The test will check for serious medical conditions such as HIV/AIDS, TBPE and drug use (INCLUDING CANNABIS). If you are unsure about your health we recommend that you visit your doctor and be tested in your home country. If there are any discrepancies between your health check form and the health screening in Korea, your visa may be revoked and you will be deported and possibly blacklisted (leaving you unable to enter Korea).

5. A signed copy of your CV (your signature)


Print out a copy of your CV and then sign and date it. Make sure your CV contains all the information listed in step one.

4 Colour passport size photos


The photos need to be 3.5cm x 4.5cm. They should be taken in front of a white back ground. Make sure your hair is tied back, piercings are removed and you are dressed fairly smartly as your school, as well as the immigration office in Korea will see these photos.

3. Photocopy of the information page of your passport


Make a photocopy of the information page of your passport, it can either be a colour or a black and white photocopy. The passport needs to be valid for at least 6 months at the time you apply for your visa. However, we advise you have at least 12 months remaining as renewing a passport from Korea can prove to be quite complicated.

2. Photocopy of your degree certificate with apostille certificate

Make a photocopy of your degree certificate and take it to a public notary / lawyer in your state to be notarized in the same way as stage 2 of the CRC. We advise that you notarize your CRC and degree certificate at the same time with the same public notary or lawyer and then send both documents to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in your territory as above.
