Working and living in South Korea – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in South Korea requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of South Korean expat life. Living abroad in South Korea raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to South Korea?ʺ, ʺIs there a help centre for expats and foreigners in the capital?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Seoul should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the South Korean municipality in Busan?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in South Korea is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for South Korea aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in South Korea. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from housing and household, to administration & finance or education and children, up to local organisations & companies. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺIs it difficult for a trailing spouse to be hired by a Korean company?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
