I have an F-2 visa and heard there will be some new requirements for those who want to renew their visas. A local hagwon owner told me she attended an informational government meeting today and said that new legislation was passed that will make things harder for F-2s to renew.
According to her, current F-2s will need to jump through the same hoops as E-2s (updated appostilled criminal background checks, notarized diploma copies or whatever else they are asking for this year, as well as an updated medical examination and local criminal check) when it comes time to renew their visas or sign a contract for a new job. The new rules will apparently go into effect at the end of November.
Anyone else heard of this or have any information?
