A gyopo is a term for people of Korean-heritage born in or out of Korea. Their nationalities are identified with countries/states that are other than South Korea, North Korea. They may be living in or out of Korea at present time. Similar term 'haewae gyopo' (해외교포 海外僑胞), means a person of the same genetic stock living abroad. Gyopos in Korea are able to obtain an F-4 visa, similar to some of the visas issued in European countries to people who are able to claim direct lineage. The F-4 visa gives a person nearly the same rights as a Korean citizen, and the F-4 visa holder is able to work anywhere without fear of repercussion.
