South Korea has offered D-2-7 Visa to attract overseas students even as it emerges as an ideal place for international students to pursue studies. This is especially true for students from Asia. Students from overseas must obtain the Student Visa or the D-4-1 visa to study in South Korea.
To attract international students the government of South Korea will be offering the D-2-7 Visa. It is one among the highly privileged visas offered by the nation. This visa permits the overseas students to study and as well as work in South Korea, as quoted by the Visa Reporter.
To obtain the D-2-7 Visa, overseas students must be Engineering students. Alternatively, they can also have a complete scholarship and a Letter of Recommendation from the University President. Currently, only those students who are sponsored by the government are eligible to receive this visa.
Seoul National University, Yonsei University, and Korea University are some of the top universities in South Korea. This nation has an edge over Japan and Singapore as the cost of living and tuition fees are much lower than other nations.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Justice has announced that the rules will be made stringent upon review in 2018 March. As per the new rules, overseas students with just 70% or lesser attendance 2 successive semesters or 50% or lesser attendance in 1 semester will not be qualified for an extension of their Student Visas. Apart from this, students with longer periods of vacation will be qualified for an only 1-month extension.
The rules have been made more stringent as many individuals continue to work in South Korea illegally even after the expiry of their visas. Tougher rules will help to curb the visa overstayers.
