Immigration

I've lost my alien registration card. How can I get another one?

To replace a lost alien registration card, you must, without delay,
1. go to your local immigration office
2. bring your passport
3. bring  a passport size photo
4. fill in the application form available at the immigration office
5. pay W30,000

This must be done in the local immigration office (if you’re in Seoul, it cannot be done at SGC or Invest Korea). To access information on local immigration offices, click here or click on the Moving to Korea tab and then on Immigration and Visas.

Note that Korean law requires that foreign residents have their ARC on them at all times.

When leaving Korea, foreign residents can be asked to show their ARC. When leaving Korea for the last time, foreign residents can be asked to turn in their ARC and may be required to pay a fine if the ARC has been lost or is missing. Not having one's ARC can also cause a long delay at the airport.
