1. When taking a leave of absence, foreign students must return to their home country within 15 days from the date of their application for leave of absence regardless of their visa expiration date. The list of foreign students on leave of absence is immediately reported to the immigration office. If you stay in Korea for 15 days or more after you have filed your application for leave of absence, you will be penalized for illegal staying.
2. When returning to school, you must reapply for a visa in your home country. To simplify the application process, please apply for a leave of absence after paying the tuition.
