I'm an Irish citizen looking into the possibility of teaching English as a Foreign Language in Asia, but specifically South Korea.
I've read in a few places about certain requirements to live and work in Korea, but the answers are not all consistent. I know you have to get a police background check and a health check, but do I also need to conduct an interview with an immigration officer?
This informative website is good and says
All applicants are required to attend an interview at a Korean consulate by consul, except those who previously worked with an E1, E2, E3 visa in Korea without any illegal activities.
But some other teachers I know over there did not have to go through the interview process. What I want to know is - is it mandatory?
