When first applying for the visa status for the first time, although it takes some time we will verify the qualification thoroughly. After the verification is done the related procedure will be greatly simplified.

My Korean penpal sent me a box of tasty goodies! I eat them and dream about someday taking a trip there.

Click the picture for my review of these awesome tasty chips that I'm not sure the name of.

I'm a very big tea drinker in the US. When I lived in Japan, I almost always drank genmaicha which was totally fine, but I would miss chamomile and various blends sometimes.

I am about to go to Korea (Wonju) for a year. Which teas will be easy to get? Which teas will be hard to find?

Here is a link to a cartoon strip about life in Korea as a foreigner and as a teacher.

It made me laugh pretty hard and remember moments from my time as an English teacher there.

I am curious if my being left-handed is going to be problematic for the Korean faculty/students. I've read that Korean students are generally made to write with their right hand. Is it okay for ESL teachers in South Korea to write with the left hand? Thanks.

I just got a job in Wonju! Yay! Yay! 

One problem: the health check. I'm so scared of needles and some of the people on Dave's ESL Cafe are saying they take up to 4 vials of blood! Ah! Is this true? ;;

Basically, I'm looking for personal stories about the health exam associated with the E-2 visa. Thanks guys.

ETA: I just read this and am absolutely terrified. Sadly, this may be dealbreaker for me! :(

Hi everyone. I have my EPIK/SMOE interview for teaching in Korea on Monday, and I am so nervous. Anyone got tips on what to expect them to ask? I have a general idea but they say it's 30-40 minutes long which is a long time to talk about myself...

Also, my recruiter said I have a good chance of passing (I doubt it) but if I pass, I have to have all my documents ready ASAP. I haven't even taken my criminal record check yet, or gotten anything apostilled. I was just wondering how long does it take for those to process, how long it takes to get something apostilled and how long does it take for the VISA to process?

TY for any help in advance. =)
