As an expat family living here in Seoul, we renew our visa and Certificate of Alien Registration every year. We recently went to the Immigration Office in Mokdong and we applied for the renewal of our visa and our re-entry permit. Let me share this to those in the same status as we are.
My husband is an E-7 visa holder and as his dependents, my son and I both hold an F-3 visa. The applicant has two options for the re-entry permit: single or multiple re-entry. We always choose the multiple re-entry for 50,000won. Single re-entry permit costs 30,000won. Our passports are now conveniently stamped with our multiple re-entry permits and our Alien Registration Cards are newly-stamped with the extension of our stay so we are legally staying here until next year:-).
We submitted the following documents:
- application form
- employment contract of my husband
- company ID of my husband
- sponsorship letter from the company
- Certificate of Employment
- tax payment
- company registration
- stamp – obtained after paying 50,000won (multiple re-entry permit) and 30,000won (visa renewal)
