2) We accept checks, cash, and traveler’s checks.

Checks should be made out to HSA-UWC CSC and $8 needs to be added for a processing fee. If the check is over $1000 (workshop fee for 2 people), a $10 fee needs to be added. Traveler’s checks are the same as cash.


7. Important points to keep in mind:


1) Members must start the 40-day (21-day) Workshop within 7 days from the official workshop starting date. If they arrive late they must extend their participation in the workshop by the number of days they are late.


2) You may arrive 1 or 2 days early, but must stay until July 17 to complete the 1st 21-day workshop and until August 5 to complete the 40-day workshop or 2nd 21-day workshop.


3) It is recommended that 40-day workshop participants leave the following day (Aug 6) at the earliest.


4) Members who are psychologically or spiritually or behaviorally challenged must first consult with Rev. Kim Dong Bae(82-31-589-7188). If permission is granted, he or she may register only if accompanied by a caregiver. (Please keep in mind that if permission is not granted, or if a caregiver does not come, such an individual may be asked to return home.)


5) Even though you complete the workshop, if your attitude during participation does not meet the workshop standards, you may not be able to receive the graduation certificate. In this case, you can receive the certificate after participating satisfactorily in any other 40-day or 21-day workshop.


6) If you do not follow the workshop standards habitually and consistently, you may be asked to return home.    


7) International 2nd generation members, living outside of Korea and Japan, age 16 and above can participate in the liberation ceremony and blessing ceremony for their parents’ ancestors.


8) As of the 71st workshop, 40-day workshop participants who register for the ancestor liberation ceremony are also required to pay the 2-day workshop registration fee of 25,000 won per group of seven generations. (However, the registration fee for the ancestor blessing ceremony is 25,000 won regardless of the number of generations.)


9) Members coming to Korea from abroad must usually obtain a 90-day visa, before coming to the workshop. (Members in the USA and most of Europe do not need VISA). The Training Center cannot acquire or extend visas for you. If your visa expires while you are in Korea, the immigration office will charge you a penalty of $100 US per month and your name can be placed on a “black” list.


10)  Medical Insurance for Traveling Abroad (Traveler’s Insurance)


- Even if you get a traveler’s insurance, you will be asked to pay the hospital fee first and get reimbursed later. Please prepare extra cash for emergency medical expenses.

- If you have a proper insurance from CIGNA International Expatriate Benefits, you can receive medical treatment without paying the whole payment, by paying the required deduction amount plus your percentage of the total subsequent costs according to the contract you made with the company. But please check details with the company whether it can be used in South Korea or not.
