I went on 5/26 to change my visa status from e2 to d10 after completing my teaching contract. I was planning to to travel to Thailand for 2 weeks but the immigration officer (a total sourpuss) simply said "no" when I asked if I could travel while I wait for the processing.

They obviously take your arc card when you do this (mine had an expiry date of 6/22). She said my new arc won't be ready until 6/23. I still have my physical e2 visa in my passport with a final entry date of 6/14. Would I still be able to travel if I got a certificate showing I am changing visa status and I arrive back before my e2 final entry date?

If I came back on a tourist visa would that complicate the processesing of the D10 or would it be irrelevant?

Any knowledge or info would be much appreciated!

It used to be that you could get a certificate of alien registration at the desk on the left as you enter the Seoul immigration office and that would suffice for travel.

If you leave and re-enter as a tourist you nullify the D10 application (meaning you only have 90 days to find a job and change back to E2 before you need new documentation from home).
