An American teacher friend of mine who speaks English, Spanish, Italian and some Korean has been offered a job in a Korean software company to be an international manager. They want him to find and do sales in Europe and America. He is currently on a normal E-2 visa and he is wondering about how he can transfer to a professional work permit, and what the requirements are. The company head that offered him a job has said they will sponsor his visa, and they mainly want him because of his diverse language skills. I Renee seeing one time that they will have to prove that a Korean can't do the job, is that true? We really appreciate it, thanks in advance for the information 411.

Prove to labor that he has skills that cannot be obtained in Korea (no Korean is available to do the job).
Prove that he has the necessary qualifications to do the job in question.
Show undergraduate and post graduate qualifications for the job in questions.
Show experience or other skills related to the job in question.

ONCE the company has the permission to hire a foreigner they can then apply for the visa confirmation for the E7.

Then the applicant can do the visa run to obtain the new E7.

There are no set requirements for an E7. Each job and applicant are judged on their own merits.

General guidelines are:
i) bachelors in the field of expertise and 5 years of related experience.
ii) masters in the field and 2 years of related experience.
iii) PhD.
or
iv) significant other skills (must be documented).

He also wants to know if he can transfer his E-2 with a release letter and the company's documentation to an E-7 or if he has to do a visa run to change from that one to a different one.

I thought a E-visa to E-visa transfer (ie, E2-->E1) is possible in country? The HiKorea website is being fixed up so the information is not reachable. Still, I remember the transfer was possible.

Good Luck to your friend. Please keep us up to date.

I don't really know the details, but yeah, basically he's just there to try and find places that want to use their software in other parts of the world.
