Tourist Visa from South Africa ready to start at Hagwon
« on: October 27, 2021, 05:49:23 pm »
Hi all. I(47M) have a tourist visa that is about to be issued. I'm currently in Cape Town, SA,
Are there any hagwon positions open or opening soon? I have all relevant paperwork ready for processing.
Any advice will be warmly appreciated. TIA.

You mean you're planning to go over on a tourist visa and change to an E-2 after arrival? I'm no expert, but I don't believe that's possible?

Yeah, with travel restrictions I don't think the old visa run is what it used to be.  I wouldn't come over now on a tourist visa in hopes of work.  I'd wait until you get a job and wait for your E2.  I see you posting a lot so you're obviously eager.  Have you sent your info to ScottJ?  He's always posting jobs that are about right for someone who just wants  to get a foot in the door and start collecting a paycheque.  Send your stuff to Korvia.  If they think you have potential they'll go to bat for you.  If they don't, they'll just refer you to the junk bond trader of ESL jobs, ScottJ.

Good luck.

Virtually nobody will hire you on a tourist visa. You cannot convert in-country. You would have to do a visa run during the pandemic and quarantine at both ends.
