Title: Getting a new visa...help
Post by: bmoney on January 29, 2014, 05:38:51 am
Hi all
I just finished teaching my 3rd year at a public school in Korea.  I left to travel for about 2 months.  My korean visa expired.  I will be heading back to Korea in about a week to look for a different teaching job. 

Question, as an american, do I need a new FBI background check?  I had a new one for my 3rd year (2013) but im worried that i will need to provide another new one...

Any input would be GREATLY appreciated

unless your new job is already lined up, signed, etc. i would say, with about 85-95% surety, that you need a whole new set.

HOWEVER, the Immigration Office MAY say you are fine, since they DO keep records of all of us. (but the Office of Education will want new docs, since you left)

BUT to be 100% sure, you should talk to a recruiter.

New visa usually means new paperwork. Even if immigration says they have on file they will want the docs.
Also to note the CRC expires after six months of issue.  Plus if you have left the country for more than 90 days a new CRC can be asked for.
You should have got a D10 Visa.
