I'm going to work in Daegu as an English teacher starting this fall but wanted to enter Korea, look for a job, and then after getting a job, obtain a work visa. I want to live in Korea for about as long as the travel visa allows while looking in person for jobs. So, my question is, would I have to come back to the U.S. to do my visa interview or could I go to Japan??? I"ve heard that there are "no more visa runs to Japan?"
Thanks!!

Visa run tomorrow at 10am. Wish me luck. Anyone else going? or staying at the Hotel Metro the 21? If so, see you there. I'll likely be the confused one.

Can anyone advise me of a good travel agent for flights to Osaka and a cheap place to stay ? Also what do you think is the best way of getting there?

If you've got lots of time on your hands, take the boat from Busan. You need to book a month in advance, though.

Places to stay? I stayed in 3 different hotels in the area, to see what I liked. Hands down, the Westin Osaka was the best. It is right next to the Umeda Sky Building. Right in the middle of everything. After taxes and everything, about $180 a night. There's a hotel shuttle from Osaka station. If that's too pricey, you can get a good mid-range place for $100 a night, or a capsule hotel for $35. However, if you're going to stay in a capsule hotel, you might want to consider sacking out at a PC room. They have deluxe recliners, I hear, in your own little closet, and you can sleep very comfortably there, for even less money then the capsule hotels.

On www.hostelworld.com, there are hotels for $25/night in Osaka.

I'll be in one of them this weekend Wink

What is the fee for the visa in the Korean Consulate in Osaka, and what do you use to buy the visa stamp in the machine there? currency wise, I mean?

Just got back from my visa run. Wow, what a cool place! Coming back to ol' Suwon is definitely a letdown! And for those who are curious, same day runs don't seem possible, as I was right there when the doors opened. I still had to come back the next day to pick up my passport. Oh well, it was worth it, as I got to browse around all of the record shops!

Hello...

How much does it cost to pay for a visa now in Osaka?

Anybody know?? I am going to Japan this week for the Visa Run and would like to know what kind of budget I have to play with..

I am looking for my own accomm too so searching for a nice but reasonable inexpensive place to stay there too..

Any advice or help?
Thank you,
