D-2-8 Short-term Study Visa

  • If you are planning to stay for less than 90 days attending programs in Korea, you should obtain a D-2-8 visa.
    (Nationals of a country that signed visa waiver agreements with Republic of Korea are thereby subject of exemption.)
  • Obtaining a visa can be time consuming; therefore we strongly recommend that students apply early.
  • Please contact the nearest Korean Embassy or Consulate General in advance to avoid any confusion or delay before applying for your visa.
  • DKU does not guarantee visa issuance for program participants. Korean embassies or consulates overseas have the final authority to issue visas.
  • Visa fees may apply.

Tuberculosis Test result

  • For the safety of all residents in the dorm, we require participants who stay at the university dorm to do a tuberculosis test (chest x-ray, skin test or blood test) and submit the results upon arrival.
  • The test should be taken within the 2 months prior to the dorm move-in date.
  • A record of vaccination for tuberculosis is NOT acceptable.
  • If participants do not submit an acceptable report, they must have a test done in Korea upon arrival. (Fee KRW 20,000won) 


  • All participants are required to have proper insurance.
  • Please make sure to send the scanned image of your insurance to no later than January 12, 2018.
  • DKU will purchase group insurance for those who don’t submit insurance in time and fees will be charged upon arrival. Group insurance covers only medical expenses and will cost between USD50~100.
