Renewing my Canadian Passport in Busan


 

Renewing your passport while abroad isn't exactly the smartest course of action.  I had a year and a half left on my passport when I left Canada to teach English in South Korea, but with all the expenses of applying for my visa, getting my fingerprints and background check done, having my degree notarized, etc. I didn't bother applying for a new passport.  You need 6 months + to travel practically anywhere, and if you want to go to China on a multi-entry visa you need at least a year before your passport expires.
