Can a foreigner get a part time job?

Postby ellemenotree8960 » February 20th, 2011 11:02 am

I plan to move to Korea next summer for study, but I'm a bit worried about my financial situation. I don't want to be begging my parents for money, and I know the money I'm saving can only go so far. So my question is, can a foreigner on a student visa get a part time job? Or is that illegal?

저도 한국 비자 관련해서는 아는 바가 별로 없지만...
Part time job은 상관없지 않을까요?
어차피 세금신고를 안하는 일이면 관계 없을 것 같은데요.
물론 업종에 제한이 좀 생기겠지만...

Hello Manyakumi,

하하~~ 김 감독님...
세금 신고 안 하는 일이라면 저도 알죠... ㅋㅋㅋ
하긴, 과외도 세금을 신고 안하고 하면 되지요...
외국에서는 특히 Canada에서는 학생 비자로 오면 전혀 일을 할 수가 없거든요...
불법으로 일하다 걸리면 혹은 누가 찔러서 걸리면... 바로 Go Back Home이거든요...
한국은 어떤지..?
생각 고맙습니다.
best,

한국도 비슷한 상황일 것으로 추측은 됩니다만,
알바로 떼돈을 벌지 않는 이상은 별 문제 안되지 싶네요. ^^
제 생각에 월수 100 미만?

Thank Dr.Sean for sharing his opinion on this question...

I really can't say anything about this kind of question... (since there is right or wrong answer)
Here is what Dr.Sean wrote...

He said, "It might be okay to work some part time jobs".
I don't want to suggest you to do anything illegal.
It's hard to tell... or to give you any advice....

Where are you from?
One thing I can say to you is that... you can teach English at private schools or by having private tutor(s), which can make you some pocket money.
There are many people (parents) who look for good English (native) teachers.
I am not suggesting you anything... just telling you the fact that there are much demand for learning English in Korea.
cheers,
