Are you interested in travelling to the EU region or studying in Europe? Here are some useful details about visas, consular affairs and EU education programmes.

VISA

The EU delegation to Korea does not provide service on the VISA or other necessary documents related to visiting or travelling to Europe. 

On 9 November 2021, the Council updated the list of third countries for which COVID-19 travel restrictions should be lifted. The list includes South Korea. 

All persons travelling from any country for an essential or non-essential reason should have tested negative for COVID-19 in a PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before. 

In addition, member states may require self-isolation or quarantine for a period of up to 14 days, as well as further COVID-19 testing as needed during the same period. 

To find more information on Visa Exemption and documents, please consult the Embassy or Consulate-General of the country of your main destination that possesses full competency on this matter.

Study Programmes

The EU has developed a number of programmes to encourage the mobility of students, teachers and researchers and the exchange of information and best practice. 

Erasmus+ 

Erasmus+ is the EU's programme for supporting education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Set to last until 2020, its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience and volunteer abroad. It also promotes the EU as a global centre of excellence by supporting inter-university EU Master’s Degree courses and funding scholarships for non-EU participants. 

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions 

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, implemented under the Seventh Framework Programme FP7, strengthen international partnerships and research collaboration by promoting the mobility and career development of researchers.
