Faxing is a way to electronically send and transfer documents and information from one person or party to another. Although it is not used as frequently since the advent of email, there still are times when faxing may be inevitable. Whether you need to send signatures or personal documents, faxing is the one of the quickest and easiest ways to send data to someone. Faxing South Korea from the United States is not difficult, because it follows the same guidelines as faxing any other international country.
Things You'll Need
- Fax machine
- Fax number
Find a fax machine that has international coverage. This could be one that you have at home, in the work place, or at a store such as OfficeMax. Remember that store-provided fax machines charge fees.
Find out if the business or institution you are calling in South Korea requires a "9" to be dialed. For some businesses, it is necessary to dial "9" in order to make an external phone call or fax.
Dial the country code for the United States. This number is "011" and is required to dial when sending an international fax.
Dial the country code for South Korea. This number is "82."
Dial the city code and local phone number. Drop the first digit if the city code begins with a zero. For example the city code for Seoul is "02." To make an outside call, you need to dial "2."
Press send. You will be notified whether or not the fax was successful.
