What happens if you leave Korea and want to come back in on a new E2? I'm in South Africa now, doing my PGCE as planned, but will probably try weasel my way back in at some point. Do I have to get my degree notarized again?

I know I've had to in the past, but to tell the truth I can't recall how I did it ten years when I came back for my current stretch.  I came in on a tourist visa and did the visa run to Fukuoka so I guess I did it all at the consulate there.

Probably.  It was around 2005/2006 when a bunch of Canadians were busted for having come in with fake diplomas.  There was this process where all E2s had to go to their nearest immigration offices with their actual diplomas and have them physically checked.  It was a bit of a joke.  I think they were hoping anyone with a fake would break down and admit their guilt.  There were two guys in the room and one of them actually had a loupe and scrutinized the document carefully as if he could tell.  The other guy just glanced and handed them back.  Luck of the draw which forgery expert you got.  It was just after this that sealed transcripts were required.

A shame I just got here after this.  I do remember reading about folks being held in deportation jails.  My grandma actually used this story as an excuse to try and talk me out of coming here.  But I told her it was illegal teachers.

Ha!
Also, all those criminal background checks we have to do? It's in part due to a piece of trash pedo that worked here who also happened to be from the Great White North.
I mean, from these certificate forging teachers, to sexual predators, Trudeau's goatee, and the various posters on Waygook who admit to their Canadianness, I wonder if we can draw certain conclusions about the moral character of the average Canadian?

I'm not saying that.  I'm saying, I just don't have much use for them.

I'm Canadian (though I have American ties) and let me just say in agreement.  Trudeau's a dope!!

Middle of the pack, imho. Aggregate rankings put him at #10 out of 23, I believe.
He's no Merkel, but he's not a Buchanan either. 

Of course, the term isn't quite done yet. Plenty of time to still swing things in one direction or the other.  :undecided:
