Applying For A Visa
Before you start studying at Handong Global University, all international students must obtain a visa to study in Korea. After your admission or exchange participation is confirmed, and deemed that you need a D-2 (student visa) to study in Korea, Handong will send a visa packet including a ‘Certificate of Admission’. Proof of Final Academic Credentials and Financial Statement (e.g. bank account, scholarship, etc. ) which serves as proof of the student's budget for expenses while staying in Korea may be requested by the authorities.
Please keep in mind that these documents may take a long time to be issued, and requirements might vary depending on your residing country or your condition. So, please ensure that you start the process as soon as you receive the visa packet.
