  • All About Korea’s Digital Nomad Visa

    All About Korea’s Digital Nomad Visa

    Korea’s Digital Nomad “Workcation” Visa allows foreigners to travel and work remotely long-term in Korea. With the Digital Nomad Visa, you can fully immerse yourself in the Korean culture while working from wherever you want at the same time for one whole year. To be eligible for the Digital Nomad Visa, you must be a non-Korean citizen who is affiliated with an international company, meets the required minimum work experience and income, and can work remotely. If you want to break out of your norm and seek new experiences, consider Korea as your workcation destination! Q.. I am a freelancer. Am I eligible? ➔ A. Currently, the Digital Nomad Visa is eligible only to workers who are hired by or affiliated with an overseas business organization, and therefore not available to freelancers. Q.. Is the required income based on before or after tax deductions? ➔ A. The required income is based on gross income before tax deductions. Q.. I am coming with my family. Do my family members need to meet the visa eligibility requirements, too? ➔ A. Family members of the Digital Nomad Visa applicant are not required to meet the visa requirements as long as the applicant is eligible and documents proving kinship (i.e. family certificate) are provided. Q.. Will my visa be revoked if I leave my employer after I enter Korea with the Digital Nomad Visa? ➔ A. You are not legally required to report your working status after you enter Korea with the Digital Nomad Visa. However, you will not be eligible for visa extension and must leave the country by the visa expiration date. Q.. Do I need to pay taxes to Korea for overseas income? ➔ A. According to Income Tax Act Article 3 (Scope of Taxable Income), a foreign resident who has had his/her domicile or place of residence for not more than five years in total from ten years before the end of the relevant taxable period, a tax shall be imposed only on his/her income paid in or remitted to the Republic of Korea, in cases of taxable income from foreign sources. Also, citizens of countries that have a Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement with Korea will not have tax imposed. * For any tax related inquiries, contact the National Tax Center (+82-126) For details, check the Korea Immigration Service .
