D10 to E2 process?
« on: August 27, 2013, 02:12:00 am »
Hey all. I've searched the site and couldn't find a topic about this already, so I'm sorry if I somehow missed it.

I currently hold a d10 visa, looking for a hagwon to work at after the one I was anticipating teaching at fell through. I've had an e2 for the past year, only switching to the d10 when I found out the job wasn't going to work out, but already had my plane ticket to return to Korea. I'm visiting home in America now and coming back to Korea to job hunt. What exactly is the process of switching back to an e2? Am I going to need any documents? I've read mixed things so I just want to make sure I'm not SOL if I do need documents but didn't bring them back to Korea with me.

MANY thanks to anyone who knows the answer!!

Will I need it from the US or Korea? Since I've been in Korea for the past year?

Check with immigration. I was in a 'limbo' stage before. Just ran a little over my 'expiration' date, but i explained to immigration what my plan was. i told them that i plan on going back to the e-2 visa within a matter of days/weeks. they assured me that they would keep my documents (and they did). I didnt have to submit anything new, other than Employer documents and application. They held onto my documents and made the 'return to e2' quite smooth.
But you may want to have new copies of documents just to be on the safe side.
You only live today once. You wont get a second chance. You wont get to live it twice. So make the most of it.
