If you are an expat living in South Korea, you might have questions regarding the country's taxation system. First of all, note that you will have to pay tax if you are a resident of South Korea for more than a year. Make sure to seek related information with the Korean taxation authorities before travelling to Korea.

South Korea is known to be one of the most connected countries worldwide, and its telecommunications network is highly developed. If you are moving to South Korea, you can easily get your internet at home or a data plan for your mobile phone. On top of that, most public places also offer free Wi-Fi to its customers, and major cities such as Seoul have Wi-Fi throughout the city.

South Korea's telecommunications market is amongst the most developed worldwide. If you are moving to South Korea, it is fairly easy to get a mobile phone contract to be able to keep in touch with family and friends back home. There are countless mobile phone service providers with affordable monthly plans and packages.

If you are planning to move to South Korea, you should take enough time to choose the right moving company. It is an important step that should not be taken lightly. A moving expert can visit your home to assess the volume of items you wish to send abroad. You will have to specify which items require special care, such as kitchenware or art pieces. You can save money by disassembling pieces of furniture yourself and packing your dishes or smaller items into boxes.

If you are visiting South Korea for short-term, you are allowed to rent a car if you hold an international driving licence recognised by the South Korean authorities. To apply for an international driving licence, you have to contact the local authorities of the region you are staying in.
