Aktualisiert: 23. Mai 2023

Preparing yourself to move abroad can be a long and exhausting process. These Tipps will help you to settle faster and start you life in South Korea easy and with most convenience!

  1. Learn the language: Knowing some basic Korean will help you communicate with locals and make your daily life easier. Consider taking language classes before your trip or using language learning apps to practice. Even knowing only a few basic phrases will take you a long way and the locals will be so thankful that you try to speak their language!

  2. Research the culture: Korea has a unique culture with its own customs, traditions, and social norms. Learning about the culture will help you understand and respect the people around you.

  3. Plan your accommodation: Decide on your accommodation options, whether it's renting an apartment, staying in a guesthouse, or even one of our sharehouses! Consider factors such as location, cost, and convenience.

  4. Check the weather: Korea has four distinct seasons, so make sure you pack appropriate clothing for each season.

  5. Prepare your finances: Make sure you have enough money to cover your expenses, including accommodation, food, transportation, and leisure activities. If you stay longer than 3 months, you may also want to open a local bank account to manage your finances more easily and be able to order food and other things online!

  6. Get your paperwork in order: Make sure you have all the necessary documents for your visa, insurance, and other legal requirements. Also, check if you need to get any vaccinations before traveling to Korea.

  7. Stay connected: Bring an unlocked phone or buy a local SIM card to stay connected with your family and friends back home. Also, consider downloading apps that can help you navigate and communicate in Korea, such as translation apps or transportation apps.

Here some of my personal recommendations for getting started :-)

By preparing yourself for living in Korea, you can make your transition smoother and enjoy your stay to the fullest. Remember to be open-minded, flexible, and respectful of the local culture, and you'll have a great time living in Korea.
