If you wish to obtain Korean citizenship, you can apply for it via the Korean immigration office. The requirements are fairly strict. You have to prove either a large investment from $US 500,000 or have an imminent career in the one of the following fields: science, education, business, sports or the arts. If you are the owner of a recreational facility in Korea and have invested $US 200,000 in Korea, you have other opportunities to obtain a residence permit. Additionally, you have the option to obtain a residence permit if you are a Korean national that has received a foreign nationality in the past. Also minors or spouses of Koreans who are obtaining a study, residence or work visa can apply for a residence permit.
Living in Korea
The most common accommodation in Korea is either a standard city apartment downtown or a city house in the suburbs. Regardless of whether your preference is an apartment or city house, the landlord should offer you a long-term contract, which is normally for a period of two years.
The monthly rental costs for an apartment in a city can vary between $US 600.00 – 5,000. As opposed to this, a city house (villa) varies between US$ 2,000 – 10,000. Certainly, the actual costs are dependent upon the size of the property and the facilities that may be included.
