Differences from C-4 short-term work visa

The difference between a C-3-4 short-term business visa and a C-4-5 short-term work visa is the difference between whether you are paid for profit or not. Most of the documents to be submitted are similar, and the period of stay is the same at 90 days. The difference is that when issuing a C-4-5 visa, an additional labor contract must be submitted.

Ex) Foreigners dispatched to construction agencies in Korea for installation, maintenance, shipbuilding and industrial facility production, and supervision of imported machinery, etc. Since it is out of scope, short-term employment C-4, trade management D-9 visa is issued.
