Hello,

Apologies if I'm bringing up an old thread or topic, i ran a search on it but the search function failed on me.

So my question is, are they still doing the full medicals and the drug testing in Korea as part of the process to be an English teacher?

Do you have to do it as part of your alien card application?

Appreciate your responses.

Thanks

Is it just an urine test? Or a blood/hair test?

Yes, there is still a drug test. It is urine. If you can not control yourself do not come to Korea.

The drug test is part of the medical.

This question comes up once in a while. Wish most people searched (in this case harder) first. In general all you have to do is use common sense. Live clean for a while and you will be fine.

Oh ya, I forgot about this. Remember the blood test is first off, right off the plane. All E2s as they enter the country are checked and scanned for drugs at the airport. Then blood is taken.
