• Before student arrives in Korea: Need to apply for D-2-8 VISA

All foreign visiting students need to obtain D-2-8 visa for their studies at Hanyang. Hanyang University provides "Certificate of Admission" and "Business Certificate of Hanyang University" when your admission to Hanyang is confirmed. And with other documents you may be required for your application of a D-2-8 visa, make sure to complete visa application at Korean Embassy.

• After student arrives in Korea: Need to apply for an Alien Registration Card with the proper VISA.

D-2-8 visa is a single-entry visa and it will be valid only for 90 days after student’s arrival in Korea. Therefore, students should apply for an "Alien Registration Card (ARC)" to extend their stay to complete the program and to allow themselves to travel to other countries if needed.
Students cannot leave Korea until receiving FRC. Leaving Korea without FRC will result in cancellation of the visa and the visiting student program.
