MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS


You do need to be in good health with no chronic medical ailments or disabilities in order to be considered for selection.


All new Guest English Teachers are required to undergo a Compulsory Medical Check-Up when they arrive in South Korea.


This medical check-up is designed to confirm the accuracy of the information you will be asked to provide in your Application Form.


While it is not compulsory for you to undergo a medical examination before your departure for Korea it is advisable to be very clear about your health status. If it emerges during the medical in Korea that the Self Medical Assessment you filled in on your Application Form was incorrect a decision will then be made whether or not to cancel your contract and working visa. If your contract is cancelled you will be obliged to finance your flight back home as you will not be permitted to remain in Korea on your work visa.


The medical tests will specifically cover the following areas which are of particular concern:


  1. Illicit Narcotics

  2. Tuberculosis (TB)

  3. HIV+


So, if you are not 100% sure of your status on any one of these items please do a medical test before you proceed with your application to avoid later disappointment.

FALSE POSITIVE BLOOD TESTS

The medical tests for narcotics do on occasion flag applicants who are taking flu medication, sedatives or other Schedule 2 (over the counter) or Schedule 3 (prescription) medication. If you are on any medication in the 3 months leading up to and including your flight to Korea please be sure to take a doctors letter with you to clarify the matter.
