Visa extension and transfer
« on: March 01, 2011, 06:53:37 AM »
Hi! I am worried about this. I have been teaching English in Korea for 4 years. I have an old apostillized degree (I submitted the degree and police clearance certificate  in 2009). I did not get my police clearance back. I heard that the immigration office will give you time to hand in these documents? Is that true? I am going to extend and transfer my visa next week sometime. Should I have all the documents? I don't have it. I thought that I will apply for it sometime during the year.

I went yesterday. They wanted a copy of the apostillized degree again, even though i handed it to them in 2009 with my first application. But still managed to get an extension right there without going back to get it (assistant teacher faxed it in later). But i have been with the same school for the last two contracts so maybe its different.

I did get all the documents back every time though, that is a strange one for you not to get them.

Unlike some posting here, i didn't get 13 months on my visa though. Maybe because i just extended and didn't transfer.

oh,  I've heard that when you don't have all the documents they'll give you time to hand it in.I'm just worried that they won't give me the extension at all.

This inconsistency at Immigration is crazy. It seems the rules vary from counter to counter. When will there be uniformity??
Everything is not as it seems.

No one owes you anything.... get over it.
