Can I get a credit card in Korea? What are the requirements?
Getting a credit card is somewhat complicated. You must provide documents that say you are employed. If you are not a citizen of South Korea, you might have to show a certain visa status to get a credit card.
On the other hand, it is quite easy to get a debit card. Check cards, as they are called in Korea, work the same way as credit cards and they can be issued with a deposit account at a bank. To know more, go to the article, How to Open a Bank Account in Korea. (Click here to go to the article.)
