If you are a citizen of a country with a visa exemption agreement with the Republic of Korea, you can participate in the WISE program without applying for a special visa since the duration of the WISE is 2 weeks. Upon arrival, students will receive a 90-day tourist visa which is sufficient to join the program.
If you are from a country that requires a visa to enter Korea, a short-term study visa (D-2-8) may be required. For details regarding visa requirements or how to apply, consult the South Korean embassy or consulate in your home country to verify if you need a visa to enter Korea. Please contact the WISE Office via email in order to receive the necessary documents for your visa application. Obtaining a visa can be time consuming and therefore we strongly recommend that students apply early.
