has anyone left and re entered korea using a D10 visa?
« on: April 03, 2012, 11:43:27 am »
I just want to know if there were any problems or if they just tried to take your D10 away. I think i can finish my contract, apply for a d10 and go on an extended vacation without dealing with the bullshit paperwork stuff and then come back and sign a new contract, but I don't know if d10 is the same as multiple entry ARC in that respect. Please let me know. Thanks.

Keep in mind that in order to get a D10 visa you need to have worked for one of the top 300 companies in the world or have a graduate degree from one of the top 200 universities globally.  If you are looking to work at a hogwon, it might be easier just to do a visa run after you are hired.

The best info I found on D10 visa requirements is at http://www.koreanconsulate.on.ca/en/?b_id=77&c_id=724&mnu=a02b03&start=1

thanks vwo8,

I found the same info:
Quote
Eligible Applicants

    "Recognized person by the minister of ministry of justice, who wants do training or job seeking to be Professor(E1), Foreign language Instructor(E2), Research(E3), Technological Guidance(E4), Special Profession(E5), Specially Designated Activities(E7)"

I think they hand them out to all previous E2 holders OR graduates of top universities or employees of the top 300. So i am 99.9% sure i can get it. I just want to know if I can get it, go on vacation, and then find a job and come back without paperwork hell.
