Korea Immigration Service
diversity and integration-attuned policies is our top mission
Welcome to Korea Immigration Service!
Immigration policies form the backbone of a nation with greater importance as core elements directly
affecting a nation’s demographics and economic policies in this age of ever-growing global migration.
Korea Immigration Service is taking a leading role to respond to this irreversible global phenomenon.
We are investing great effort to create a society upholding diversity, where Korean nationals and
friends from other countries respect each other’s backgrounds. We are also striving to attain social
integration, which allows common Korean values to be respected and encourage all people to
unleash their full potential.
Korea Immigration Service will ensure these goals are attained and thereby contribute to placing
this country as a globally respected country. Not to mention our efforts, your valuable feedback on
services we provide is also crucial on our journey to materialise our important mission.
We kindly ask for your continued support.
