In addition to the Income for permanent resident status(F-5 VISA), the Net Asset is accepted as to Sustain a Livelihood영주자격(F-5)

In addition to the Income for permanent resident status(F-5 VISA), the Net Asset is accepted as to Sustain a Livelihood

영주자격(F-5) 신청 시 필요한 생계유지 능력에 '소득' 이외에 '순 자산'도 인정하고 있음.


According to the Ministry of Justice, when applying for permanent resident status(F-5) in accordance with Article 18-4, Paragraph 1, Item 2 of the recent Immigration Control Act enforcement regulations, Immigration accepts the net asset(excluding liabilities) or annual income(usually double GNI).

법무부에 따르면 최근 출입국관리법 시행규칙 제18조의 4 제1항 제2호 규정에 따라 영주자격(F-5)을 신청할 때 증명해야 하는 생계유지 능력을 소득 또는 순자산으로 분리함.


The Net assets include bank deposits(more than 6 months), funds, insurance, stocks, and deposits for Jeonse or monthly rent as well as real estate such as houses and land. 

순자산은 예금(6개월 이상), 펀드, 보험, 주식, 전세나 월세 보증금을 포함하며, 실물자산은 주택, 토지를 공시가격으로 산정함.


The sum of the household net assets (excluding liabilities) of financial assets and real estate assets holding by a family member living together is KRW 414.52 million or more as of the end of March 2021, it is considered to have met the ability to sustain a livelihood.

생계를 같이 하는 가족이 보유하고 있는 금융자산과 실물자산의 가계 순자산(부채 제외)의 합계는 2021년 3월 말 기준 4억 1,452만 원이상임.


In summary, if you apply for F-5 visa, you may use your previous year's Income or net assets(financial assets and real estate assets).

정리하면 영주자격 신청 시 전년 소득 또는 순 자산으로 생계 유지 능력을 입증할 수 있음.


However, you cannot use combining your Income and Net Assets.

다만 소득과 순 자산은 합산하여 활용할 수 없고, 소득 또는 순자산만 사용할 수 있음.

Updated Information on F-2-71 VISA F-2-7 비자 점수제 우수인재 거주비자

Updated Information on F-2-71 VISA


As I checked Seoul Immigration Office through 1345, kindly see below regarding F-2-71 VISA Change.


When you changed your previous visa such as D-8, D-9, E-1~E-7 visa etc., to F-2-7 visa, and couldn't meet GNI*1 income, then your spouse had F-1-12 visa.


In this case, if you meet GNI*1 income with 80 points, your spouse may apply for F-2-71 visa from F-1-12 visa.

(*Even though I got this information, I couldn't find a guideline, unfortunately).


However, if you and your spouse got F-2-7 visa and F-2-71 visa and then your spouse got F-1-12 visa because your income of F-2-7 visa couldn't meet GNI*1. In this case, there is no specific guideline.
