Extending your stay (D-2 Visa extension)

To continue study or research without changing your activity at the College of Engineering SNU, you must apply for an extension of stay before your visa expires. You can apply for a student visa (D-2) extension from 4 months prior to the expiration date.
To apply for your visa extension, you can walk in the Seoul Immigration Office or apply through the online immigration system (
www.hikorea.go.kr -> E-application -> create your own account in hikorea). For online applications, the extension fee will be discounted 20% if your fingerprint is registered and your passport has never changed during your stay. Please remember that you will be responsible for a penalty if your application for extension is made after the expiration date.
