KCCA chairperson elect (past vice-president), Rev. David Kim, who has organized motherland tours in the past with the past president, the late John Lim, will coordinate the arrangement of the trip in Korea: accommodations, food, transportation and tours. KCCA executives, Paul Muther and Vincent Lim, working with a few parents, will make up the core team overseeing the registration, applications and preparations. The trip will be accompanied by Rev. David Kim and one other KCCA executive, as translators and tour facilitators.
KCCA families will cover the transportation costs: return air to Korea, return air to Jeju island (from Busan/Seoul) and coach bus in Korea.
Approx. $2,300 per person = Approx. $1800 +$200 + $300
KCCA will work with Korean government organizations/agencies and non-profit organizations in securing sponsorship of accommodations, food and tour costs. Other trip expenses, including personal expenses and shopping, can add up to $500 per adult.
First come, first serve – 30 people including children (approx. 8 families):
Priority to be given to:
Family’s first time back to Korea since adoption
Families with older aged adopted children (e.g 12-13 vs 5-6)
Immediate family members welcome (e.g. siblings) over extended families (e.g. grandparents)
The balance of approximately $1800 per person (Return air fare to Korea) is due at the time of the group air ticket purchase at the end of January.
The KCCA will purchase the air tickets as a group in order to receive a reduced price. Families with award mileage must secure their own trans-Pacific air tickets and be responsible for his/her own transportation for meeting with the group in Seoul.
