The Service of Information, Guidance and Hospitality to Travelers

The Service of Information, Guidance and Hospitality to Travelers (SIGHT)

1. What is SIGHT?

SIGHT is the Mensa Service for Information, Guidance and Hospitality to Travelers. SIGHT is a network of Mensans who want to meet other Mensans. Some travel to do so, whilst others welcome traveling Mensans into their homes. At present count, there are 52 countries throughout the world that offer this service.

2. Why SIGHT?

The SIGHT aims to look after both hosts and guests, providing each party with the information to be considerate and helpful to each other. The SIGHT Coordinator will put an intending visitor to Korea in touch with a fellow member willing to provide accommodation.

3. Goal

SIGHT's goal is to provide help to traveling Mensans and help them solve problems they may encounter in a foreign country. SIGHT guests are sometimes seeking accommodation, but sometimes all they would like is the opportunity to meet local Mensans for a meal or just a coffee. They may also wish to visit a town with a Mensan who will be able to guide them.

4. SIGHT as a Guest

You're a member of a foreign Mensa and wish to visit Korea. First of all, we suggest you to learn about Korea beforehand; however, our members will tell you as much about Korea upon SIGHT meet up. That will answer most of your questions and help you prepare your stay in Korea. Then, the SIGHT network will be helpful for some of the needs you may have.

Of course, if you like to join a Mensa gathering, things are easy, but for more elaborate requests involving individual Mensans, we ask you to follow these guidelines:

E-mail or call the Mensa Korea SIGHT coordinator well ahead of your trip and include the request you have, your itinerary including dates and all pertinent information.

The SIGHT coordinator contacts potential hosts to inform them that a guest wishes to visit. After a host has been found, the guest is contacted and is given the name of the host. Communication can take place directly between the host and guest.

Should any problems occur between the host and visitor, please inform the SIGHT coordinator immediately.

* Important: We strongly emphasize that SIGHT exists only to promote leisure travel and tourism for Mensans and is not an immigration agency, a job-placement agency, nor a source of long-term or permanent accommodation.
