On December 1st, 2010 the immigration enacted the ‘Re-entry permission exemption scheme’. So now, If you have completed your alien registration, and you want to re-enter the Republic of Korea within a year from your initial departure, a re-entry permission will be exempted. Also, If you have an alien registration card then you are exempted from re- entry permission within the period of stay that is left on the card.

I highly recommend that you call your local immigration o ce before your departure and con rm that you do not need a re-entry permit.

You can either apply for it online at www.hikorea.go.kr or go to your nearest immigration o ce to apply in person.

According to the information available on the immigration website and on the net, recently the laws regarding the F-3 visa holders were changed. Now F-3 visa holders can work and change their visa status if they meet the required criteria. However, the information can be a bit confusing and the nal decision regarding these matters is at the discretion of the immigration o ce. I advice calling your local immigration o ce and con rming if you are eligible and what documents are required.

You can visit www.hikorea.go.kr or you can call Immigration Helpline at 1345 which provides customer service in English, Korean, Japanese and Chinese. The sta is friendly and can answer most of your questions or can help you to nd out where to get help for more complex issues.
