    • □  Military Service Process of Conscription Candidates Overseas


          ■ What is dual citizenship?

             ㅇ When a child is born in a country that adheres to the jus soli (right of the soil) principle and his/her
                 parent is a citizen of a country with jus sanguinis (right of the blood) principle, the child obtains both
                 citizenship at birth; one from his/her the birthplace and one from his or her parent’s birthplace.
                 For example, a child whose parents are South Korean is born in the US, which adheres to the jus
                 soli principle, has both South Korean nationality and US citizenship by birth and therefore the child
                 becomes a dual citizen.

         ■ Dual Citizen’s Choice of Nationality

            ㅇ A male dual citizen must choose one nationality by the end of March of the year he turns 18. If he fails
                to do so in time, he may choose (renounce) his nationality only after he finishes his military service or
                after he is exempted from military service.

            ㅇ A dual citizen born while his parents were living overseas without the purpose of permanent residence
                must finish his military service or be exempted from military service in order to choose (renounce) his
                nationality. This type of dual citizen cannot renounce his nationality even during the renunciation period.

         ■ Who are second-generation South Koreans?

            ㅇ Second-generation South Koreans are people who were born overseas (including people who emigrated
                overseas before they turned 6), and lived overseas continuously until the age of 18 (according to Article 2
                of Primary and Secondary Education Law, people who studied in a school(s) in South Korea for a total of
                up to three years are considered to have lived overseas continuously), and their parents and themselves
                acquired foreign nationality, citizenship, or permanent residence from a foreign government, or acquired
                indefinite residence permit (including long-term residence permit of five or more years) in a country without
                permanent residence system, and were confirmed as second-generation South Koreans.

         ■ Military Service Duty of Second-generation South Koreans

            ㅇ According to the Overseas Emigration Law, “second-generation South Koreans” are obligated to serve
                only when they have reported permanent return. Therefore, if you emigrated overseas before you were
                six years old but you renounced your permanent residence and reported permanent return to South Korea,
                your military service duty will be reinstated. If you were born overseas (dual citizenship), but  selected
                South Korean domestic residence and reside in South Korea, your military service duty will be reinstated.

            ㅇ This system is for the people who were exempted from (postponed) their military service for overseas
                emigration reasons to study in one of Korean education institutes in South Korea to learn the culture and
