Hello everyone! This morning, my husband and I went to the immigration office in Busan to process my F6 (spouse) visa extension. When I processed my spouse visa a year ago, I was only given a 1-year sojourn. However, I heard that if you attend the Happy Start Program sponsored by the immigration office, you would be given a 2-year sojourn. Since my F6 visa expires in June, I had to extend it ahead of time to avoid paying the penalty for not renewing it before the expiration date.
Here are the requirements we submitted at the immigration office:
2.) ARC (alien registration card)
3.) Medical Certificate
4.) Family Registration Certificate (I don’t know what they call it in Korean.)
5.) A proof of my husband’s Korean citizenship.
6.) Spouse Visa Extension Fee: 30,000 won
