The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be running an information booth on Friday the 22nd and Saturday the 23rd of September at Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney Olympic Park, to provide information on Korean Working Holidays.
The information booth will provide useful information on Korean Working Holidays, including the working holiday visa application process, useful tips for accommodation and temporary jobs as well as what to do after arriving in Korea.
We hope that many young Australians will come and gain some useful information to assist them in better preparing for their working holiday experience in Korea.
What is a “Working Holiday”?
The purpose of a Working Holiday in Korea is to allow you to have an extended holiday, of up to one year, while supplementing your funds with short-term work whilst you travel around Korea.
This is a one-time only visa and allows tremendous flexibility allowing you to truly immerse yourself in Korean culture.
Working Holiday visa holders are also permitted to study at a private educational institution during their stay in Korea.
Who is Eligible?
- be 18-30 years old at the time of their visa application;
- have a valid passport;
- have a return flight ticket and sufficient funds to support themselves for staying minimum 3 months;
- have medical examination results showing they meet the visa requirements for entry.
