VISA & F.A.Q.

South Korea offers a Working Holiday Program Visa, which allows young people to travel and work in South Korea for a maximum period of 12 months. The visa also allows you to enter and reenter the country as many times as you wish. You will be able to apply for the Working Holiday Program, provided that your internship is unpaid.

There are only a limited amount of countries that participate in this program, which include: Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, France, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Sweden, Taiwan, UK, USA.

If you are not eligible for a Working Holiday Program visa, and your internship duration is less than 3 months, you will have two options; you are either eligible for a Visa Exemption (which means you can stay up to 90 days without a visa), or you can apply for a Tourist Visa.

Apply online and our staff can help you further in regards to your visa eligibility for South Korea.

Note: Immigration laws are updated frequently, so the above text may be subject to change.

Requirements For The Program

AIP is able to arrange your ideal internship position independently from your university degree or prior working experience.
The basic criteria to be accepted into our program can be described as follows:

  • Good command in both, written and spoken English.
  • Open-mindedness and motivation to pursue an international career.
  • Convincing application documents.

Which package is the most suitable for me?

This mostly depends on your character and personal preference.

The placement package is most suitable for rather independent candidates who have already been in their destination of choice.

The standard package on the other hand is our carefree package which also provides you with accommodation and various other services besides the internship placement, as airport transfer, trips, language courses, networking events and more.

If you want to fully immerse into culture and country, the signature package will be most suitable for you since it also includes weekend trips across the country and cultural events such as cooking classes.

Generally, we recommend our candidates the standard package as it provides a comprehensive amount of services at a very competitive price. This will allow you to focus on your internship while enjoying a safe and carefree experience.

Please note that some packages are only available in specific destinations.

Will The Internship Be Paid?

This will mostly depend on your previous experience, the position you are looking for and the destination. In many Asian countries, it is for example not allowed to pay a salary to the interns due to the visa regulations. As such, the Asia Internship Program will not be able to guarantee you a paid internship. However, you can be assured of our highest consideration to ensure at least some form of compensation for you.

 

How Long Does The Process Take?

Arranging your ideal internship position and all necessary visa documents will take up to 8 weeks. You can have a look at how it works to gain an overview of the processes involved. Should you be in a hurry to start your internship, AIPX might be a suitable option for you. Via AIPX, we will have an interview confirmed for you within 9 working days only.

 

Is There A Refund Policy?

Yes. AIP guarantees to arrange your ideal internship position in Asia for you. As such, we will refund your deposit completely should we fail to arrange your internship according to your requirements. It will also be refunded should we fail to arrange your internship in the appropriate timeline.

For further information, please refer to our Terms & Conditions.

I spent three months doing a Business Development internship in Korea and found the experience to be absolutely first class. Before going to Korea I didn’t want to be doing the typical “busy work” that an intern usually does, but rather more useful tasks where I could build my skills and learn more about the industry. During the first week of my internship, I was working on projects that were very challenging and hands-on, which was exactly what I wanted. AIP found the perfect company for me, and I can’t say enough about how professional they were.
