If you're a German or French citizen, and you're planning to stay in Korea either as a student, worker or through other means, then you're required to apply for the Visa at the "KVAC", the "Korea Visa Application Center". This is the respective agency which will issue the Visa you need in order to stay in Korea.
We'll guide you through the process on how to apply for a Visa at the KVAC. (Information inside the images is subject to change over time)
1: Navigate to the KVAC Website, which you may also find here: https://visaforkorea.eu/en
2 (Optional): If you don't know which Visa you'll be needing, please navigate to the "Find your Visa Type" link a little further down on the site.
3: Once you know which Visa you'll be needing, you'll now need to start filling out the necessary forms, which can be found under "Download Forms". Make sure to choose the correct agency, which depends on your location. If you're situated in Germany, you'll be choosing "Berlin", and if you're situated in France, make sure to choose "Paris".
4: From the "Find your Visa Type" tab, find which documents you'll be needing to fill out for the respective Visa you're going to apply for. Find the necessary forms on the "Download Forms" page, and make sure to fill them out as correct as you can.
From here on out, once you found the necessary documents and you've filled them all out, make sure to book your appointment at the KVAC. Remember that the location is important, so whether you're situated in Germany or France, make sure to choose the appropriate agency location (Berlin or Paris).
