Hi,

I was hoping folks here would help guide me in some questions I have. My husband is a Korean Citizen (korean passport) and we are currently residing in Toronto. However, due to his family circumstances we may have to move to Korea for a year or so next year (summer 2021 likely). So he would have no issues woking there etc., however I have some questions about myself. Some background: I am a registered psychotherapist in Ontario, I have 4+ years of experience in this, and more than 10years of experience working with children and youth in general. I would obviously like to work in Korea when we relocate (for obvious reasons).

- Am I able to work in korea is a therapist? (I am proficient in Korean/English) what are the requirements for liscencing and registration?
- Am I able to work as a English instructor?
- I think I can enter on an F3 visa (as a spouse of a korean citizen) but I don't think I can work on an F3. Am I able to change visas once I get there after I do find work?

WOuld appreciate all insights!

You should focus on the expt market here. THere are some other therapists offering online services, etc. I am not sure about the certification transferring here, but I would bet you could do so.

You can call Korea immigration or (82) 1330  to find out.

Good luck!

Your visa will be f6 most likely. You can work.

You could also contact this lady and ask her. I've heard good things but I don't use her. https://www.couchology.com/

Many married to Korean citizens would have an F6 visa, which does allow work, but I am not really sure what the F3 visa is ....so, that could be the correct one for your situation...
