Some positions even provide ESL teachers with finishing bonuses in the amount of one month's salary. If you want to work in Korea, you need to find an English language school that will sponsor your visa application. You need to submit this application in order to work in another country. Failure to complete such an application can lead to a great deal of trouble in the international community. Most schools sponsor visa applications for qualified candidates.
