- VISA & OVERSEAS APPLICANTS
The majority of successful applicants will need to acquire the appropriate visa, a C4 visa, to allow them to work in Korea - we also welcome applications from those already with visa clearance, especially F-class visa holders. C4 visa applicants must be citizens of the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or the Republic of Ireland & must acquire the necessary C4 visa before arrival in Korea (full visa support will, of course, be provided to all successful applicants). Applicants needing to acquire a C4 visa should only consider applying to us if they are certain they can gather the required visa documents with sufficient time to enable them to apply for the visa at their local Korean Embassy or Consulate General. We request applicants contact their local Korean Embassy or consulate and enquire into the latest C4 visa application requirements. Please note that it is the embassy/consulate that issue visas, not Camp Korea. Also please note that we are very unlikely to advance any further in the application stage with applicants applying from overseas, especially applicants from the U.S.A. given the frequent delays suffered by American applicants sourcing the require visa documentation for a visa application, especially the apostilled FBI Criminal Background Check.
All successful applicants must organise and pay for their own transport to and from Korea to meet any contract offered to them, assuming they are not already in Korea. We do not facilitate or pay for transport to or from Korea.
If you are interested and eligible to apply please send us an e-mail (addressed to HR@CK.co.kr) expressing your desire to join us. In the e-mail please let us know the following:
1. Your name.
2. Your date of birth.
3. Your nationality.
4. Your present location (city/town & country).
5. If you need to acquire a visa for camp, where do you plan on applying for the visa (Korean embassy or consulate general location)? If you already have visa clearance, what is your present visa type & when/what date does it expire?
If you are a returning Camp Korea teacher please just send us an email expressing your interest in coming back. We’d love to hear from you.
Important note: Please DO NOT send us any documentation with your e-mail - no CVs/resumes, letters of reference, letters of qualification, birth certificates etc. Thank you.
The Next Steps
In reply to your e-mail we will furnish you with a Summer Camp 2016 Application document that needs to be completed & returned to us.
We will acknowledge all applications received but will proceed to interview stage only with select candidates. Informal interviews, via Skype, will be scheduled in due course after which offers of a camp place will be extended to successful applicants.
Thank you for considering Camp Korea for your next ESL experience & we hope to see you at camp soon.
