Visa: You must apply at a Korean Embassy or Consulate in your home country to apply for your visa. Although it is possible to apply for a D-2-6 visa outside of your home country, or to change from a tourist visa to a student visa in some cases, this requires more paperwork and is more complicated than doing it at home. Therefore, we strongly advise applying for your student visa as soon as possible in your home country so that you can travel later if you need to. Since the pre-arrival visa is only valid for 3 months, please apply for it starting from June (Fall Semester start) or December (Spring Semester start), even if you get the documents earlier. If you do not have a D-2-6 by the first official day of the semester (usually September 1 or March 2), the Seoul Immigration Office will fine you 200,000 KRW.
