Student Visa and Embassy Information
You must apply for your student visa through the Korean Consulate with jurisdiction over your permanent state of residence (see consulate link below). You can apply for your D-2 visa in person or by mail. If you apply in person, some Korean consulates require appointments to be made and have limited spots.
You should consult your Korean consulate's website immediately to obtain a student visa application, a list of requirements, and to verify the application process and timetable. You are ultimately responsible for securing your visa.
As of November 17, 2008, students may enter South Korea for academic programs that are less than 90 days without the corresponding student visa.
*If you are under 18 years of age when applying for your visa, additional paperwork may be required. Please contact the consulate immediately for more information.
Note: Embassy and consulate contact information is subject to change without notice. Please refer to the website of the embassy or consulate to verify information.
