Birth Allowance
Printer-friendly version

Does anybody know how to apply for the Birth Allowance for foreigners? When you have the Alien Registration Number, you could get a 500,000Won birth allowance. The catch is, i don't know how to go about it. This application is to be done atleast 2 weeks before the due date and i'm pretty close to my due date. I need to do the application now! Please help.

Re: Birth Allowance

What you are looking for is called the "Go Mom Card. You need to get a certificate from your doctor confirming our pregnancy. Then take that,  your ARC and your passport to any KB bank. They are the ones who issue the card, which is a pink debit card preloaded with 500,000 won that y can use for prenatal appointments, but there is a 60,000won limit per day. The card takes 2-3 days to issue, so I would hurry.
