In any case, please keep us informed about your flight schedule. Please send Flight Nr, Date, Arrival and Departure Date and time to and from Korea, Departing City. This way we can inform Korean staff who are organizing the pick-ups from and to the airport.

All European 2nd Generation Matching and Blessing Participants will most likely be located at the Cheong-A Camp in Chung Pyung during their stay in Korea (May change due to organizational reasons in Korea). The address is:

595 Songsan-ri, Seorak-myeon, gapyeong-gun, Gyeongg-do, Korea
Tel +82-31-5891700)

For Immigrations it should be enough to write "Chung Pyung training center", but you can also use the full Address.

There will be pick-ups organized at the Airport to the accommodations. When you arrive in Incheon airport and you do not see any of our representatives at the gate, please go right all the way to the end of the arrivals hall, there is the meeting point where our people will be gathered to go to the buses.

Parents and siblings who plan to travel to Korea together with the blessing participants can stay with the group, if they have registered with us (European Second Generation Blessing Department) in advance. As space will be tight, those that did not register will not be able to stay with the group. They will also need to pay for their accommodation, the exact prices will be announced later. If you need help please contact us. Parents may only stay with the candidates during the Blessing time (15th to 19th of February 2013) not during the time of True Parents matching. For all Blessing participants, the cost for your stay will be covered by your Blessing fee, including the time during the matching.

Those who wish to stay in Korea after the Blessing is over (after February 19th 2013) for other events, like the Blessing on foundation day (February 22nd 2013) may do so, but they will be responsible to organize their own accommodation. There will be no organized Program after February 19th 2013.

If you have any questions, please feel free to be in touch with me.

Yours sincerely,

Geros Kunkel
