Social Integration Program (KIIP)

Essential requirements for a long-stay visa KIIP

What is the Social Integration Program (KIIP)?

KIIP (Korea Immigration & Integration Program) is a program that supports immigrants to quickly learn Korean language and culture and to easily integrate with the local community through smooth communication with the people.

This KIIP certificate is very important because it is a basic document that must be submitted to prove basic knowledge when applying for change of status of residence, application for permanent residence, or application for nationality. If you complete the 5th level, you will be given many benefits such as exemption of proficiency in Korean, exemption from surveys, and additional points when changing your status of residence.

The KIIP program takes a lot of time and effort. However, most immigrants do not have time to study. Office workers have to go to a company, and married immigrants have children, so taking the time to study is very difficult. So, even if the period of stay in Korea is 10 years, there are many people who can hardly speak Korean or do not have a certificate of completion of the social integration program. Many people ask about more favorable residency visas, permanent residency or naturalized nationality applications, but most do not know or complete the KIIP program, so they are not eligible for basic application. However, nothing will be obtained for free. You have to do it even if it is hard

Benefits

  1. Approved for passing the comprehensive naturalization evaluation for naturalization applicants (for those who have completed naturalization)
  2. Exemption from naturalization interview (if you have completed the 5th step for 70 hours and passed the comprehensive evaluation for naturalization)
  3. When applying for permanent residence, it is recognized that basic knowledge requirements are satisfied.
  4. In case of applying for other status of residence, additional points are given, and Korean language proficiency is exempted from verification.
  5. Exemption of verification of Korean language proficiency, etc. when applying for a visa
