Hey,

Usually kimmi just writes the extension dates in pen. Do you think they will actually print them on if you ask them to? Has anyone done this?

I care because I want to get a Chinese visa in the future, and I worry that they wont like the dates written in pen.

cheers,

k

It is a pretty common for Kimmi to just use a permanent marker on the back of your ARC (since when THEIR staff are in the field they simply scan the bar code and your whole file is available to them).

It won't be a problem with the Chinese embassy.

Must have been in Seoul at the main office in Omokgyo.

Unless things have changed recently the Suwon office has always written on the back of the ARC as have the other offices in Seoul. I suspect that a number of other offices also do as well.

I also can confirm that the "traveling" innigration officer who goes to the "city hall" offices on a monthly basis simply writes on the ARC (no imprinter available).

When I last applied for a Chinese tourist visa in the summer of 2011, none of the travel agencies authorized to process visas would accept ID cards if they had been modified using a marker. This applied equally to Koreans and non-Koreans. I had to submit paperwork from the immigration office listing all the places I've lived and worked while I've been here. I forget what it's called, though, in English or in Korean. Koreans were required to produce a similar paper from their local dong office. At the main immigration office in Seoul, it cost 300 won and took a few minutes of waiting at a window that handles this sort of paperwork.

Of course, this requirement may have been changed over the last 18 months.
