Really? I've never heard of this before.

Tell your friend to go to immigration, show them the visa and tell them about the hokwon. I'm sure the owner will get his act together once he gets a call from immigration telling him to get it done or pay hefty fine.

This is true, but a strange rule. Why would a legit tourist think of getting a registration card?

OiGirl, did you come here on a Canadian passport? Are you sure the counter-clerk didn't make a mistake? What was the outcome?

I thought Canadians on a 6-month landing permit were exempt from the ARC card process....

I was on a US passport and left before the 90 days. Finally the agent realized my situation and let me go.

Now, that doesn't mean my flight actually left...

Just out of curiosity...where you you get off saying this is a rule like you know it for a fact. If my tone sounds a little miffed it actually is. A friend had me take him to immigration based of the BS that is spewed around here. *GRRR* wasted day....

IF you are on a tourist visa (or rather the 6-month Canadian exemption from a visa whatever they call it) you are a tourist...PERIOD...a tourist doesn't need an ARC (or ARC Card...acronyms are funny that way)

You can happily spend your time here for 6 months and not worry about an ARC. I had the immigration lady check with someone else because I wouldn't believe her. She was miffed so I didn't get the answer I really wanted and that was CAN a tourist visa get a residency card...it didn't seem like it but I was done arguing for the day. Smile

I think kangnamdragon owes me a beer... Twisted Evil

Did you see the part where I put need into quotation marks? That's a standard convention used to indicate I don't really believe it, but so I'm told.

OK I'll buy that but even in "re-reading" it, to me the quotation marks imply that it is required...but many people don't bother to do it. (And I STILL feel like you owe me a beer. Twisted Evil

Either way, according to immigration a tourist is a tourist, is a tourist, until we can prove otherwise and give 'em an exit order or deportation. Smile

What is the penalty for not getting your ARC within 3 months, if in fact there is a 3 month rule?

You don't really need to count 3 months on the calander. On your visa (mine is an E2 but I assume it is standard) there should be an issue date and an expiry date. The expiry date is exactly 3 months after the issue date and this is when one must obtain an ARC to avoid having your visa expire.

Welcome, all! I have recently arrived in Busan, and within a few days will start contacting recruiters and applying for teaching positions.

Is it in my interest to apply for an ARC before I actually have a job offer? I see certain mobile phone plans require them... or did I just answer my own question?

Thanks!

I visited Korea on a 90 day Tourist Visa in 2012. I was unfortunate enough to be admitted to hospital only a few days before my tourist visa was due to expire. I was still undergoing treatment when the 90 days expired and was forced to obtain an ARC until I could be released from hospital and given medical clearance to travel.
