● What is SSP?

Abbreviation of Special Study Permit

SSP is a kind of permit that Philippine Immigration Bureau permits students to study English in Philippines, which is applied by the authorized education institution to the Immigration Bureau to issue the permit for their students, not applied by student individually. Thus, when you select a language academy for language training in Philippine, you must select a language academy who is an authorized permit registered education institution for SSP issue. So to speak, the education institution who issues a SSP is legal education institution but students who study in the education institution not issuing a SSP may have problems while staying in Philippines or when returning to Korea.

Any institution not showing a SSP or TESDA must be 99% illegal.

Philippine Immigration Bureau asks Korean students to show a SSP or Language academy to show a TESDA regularly or at random. Without this license, as you saw the news “113 Korean students left for language training, detained in Philippines… due to non-payment of SSP commission”, students are defined in detention center and finally deported. In case of deportation, people are never allowed to come to Philippines which may cause a big damage to students. Furthermore, they can be detained in detention center for several months without knowing the reason. So, you must pay attention to illegal language academy not authorized for SSP and TESDA. Every company is promoting “We are SSP and TESDA authorized company”. That’s the reason why you have to check again and again.

Before departure for C amp, ask for the documents whether the company is authorized or not and check it on website directly.
