Alien Registration Cards (ARC) Application
All non-Korean nationals who are newly enrolled at Yonsei must apply for an Alien registration card within 90 days from the entry date.
All international students MUST hold a D-2 visa (student visa) to maintain student status. If some students have other visa types, they must apply for changing visa type by visiting the immigration office within 1 month from their entry date.
Please note that this is the student's responsibility to take all matters related to international affairs such as visas and alien registration cards (ARC). The GIT office cannot make visa/ARC applications on behalf of students.
Please apply for it as soon as possible. You can get the card a month after you apply.
