Foreign employees can now apply for re-entry visa through on-line application
Starting this May 5th, G4F have expanded its re-entry visa service to include foreign workers (D-3: Industrial Training, E-8: Employed Trainee, E-9: Non-professional Employment, and E-10: Vessel crew). These people can now apply for re-entry visa from online.
Foreign employees who wish to take advantage of this service will first need to create an account at the G4F website (http://www.hikorea.go.kr), and go through basic authentication process involving your foreigner registration number and English name. After that, you navigate to E-application> File and Application > Re-entry visa.
When applying, we require letter of consent or recommendation from the employer or the head of the training facility. Please scan them in, save them as a JPEG file (.jpg), and attach it to your application.
Service charge may be paid with card (individual, corporate), wire transfer, mobile phone, ARS, etc. If you are applying for another person, then you must use his/her electronic certificate, and not yours.
Our work hours start from to (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays), and it generally takes up to 72 hours (3 days) to process.
