Re-entry requirements, deported from Korea
I gave you the answer but you obviously think you know it all, yet your mother has been refused twice so you are doing something wrong.

Last 2014 i applied for student visa. I'm from the Philippines but I got denied for the reason of the documents cannot be verified. It's because my bank certificate is fake
that's the reason why I got denied.
This year after 3 years, I'm planning to apply for a Korean Tourist Visa different from my first application of student visa. I have my work now and a regular employee in a Company here in the Philippines but I'm afraid that if ever I will re apply for my visa they will not give me a chance since I had e a bad record in the Korean Embassy. That's 3 years ago. Do you think I will have the chance if I will re apply again and will pass legit and authentic documents? Am i already considered as banned in entering Korea? Please answer me Thanks so much
A refusal of a visa does not mean you are banned.
The only way you can find out if you will be granted a visit visa is by applying. there is no other way. The worst that can happen is that you will be refused.

Thanks for your answer and I'm so happy that I'm not considered as banned for lifetime
so I'll just try and try. Godbless and by the way do you know someone who was denied and reapplied and got his/her visa after the 2nd attempt?
What does 46-(1) mean ?
Please I need somebody help.
46-1 refers to the South Korean immigration law that is bought into force when a person is deported from South Korea because they have been caught committing an illegal act. In your case working illegally.
46-1 is the stamp on my passport last 2010. do u think i still can go back to korea if i will apply work again thank you
joyce09, read the thread before asking the question. As clearly stated on the previous page:
46-1 is the South Korean immigration law under which you were deported from Korea.
The only people who can confirm whether or not you can return to is the South Korea immigration.
Can somebody return back to Korea after he/she asylum got rejected and deported?
, your question has already been answered. Read the thread.
Hi im graciel ..can i ask a question ..i was deported from korea almost 3 years already ..they said that i need to wait after 5 years to re enter korea as legal worker..may i know if that is true maam /sir thanks ...b`coz im planning to apply as eps @ poea this coming e registration 2017
It is absolutely correct that you have to wait five years after deportation from South Korea.
You are not eligible to apply for EPS -TOPIK because you have a record of deportation or departure under a departure order from the Republic of South Korea and you are person who is subject to a travel ban.
hi i want to be sure if i go back to korea again for only touris... because i been in korea before 2007 to 2013 i overstay 5 years now i plan to go back there for only touris..... i can go back to korea sir
"... i can go back to korea sir..."
Contact South Korean Immigration and ask them.

It seems that when a person overstays their visa in South Korea and is then removed the immigration authority will refuse any EPS s
applications they make.
I do not think you understand. You broke the law and the Korean government do not want you returning to their country.
I got visa on arrival at jeju last week( 16-06-2017) .we was 2 persons and one of us was rejected because he was rejected second time and i was admit in jeju but then i go back to airport immigration and talk to officer for give visa to my friend. They said that they ask my friend to signature on a paper for depot him to india but he not signature.and they take my interview also for half an hour and i think they satisfy from me. But they put void stamp on my visa and ask me to signature on a paper and i did it.then they said that sir you are going back to india..so can i go to seoul ( south korea ) again?
You made a grave error by going back to plead for your friend. I doubt very much if you will be granted any visa for South Korea in the future.
hi sir....i was a korean wife but i ran away didn't get my citizenship... I worked in a factory and got caught by immi officer got deported after 3 days....its been 8 yrs now since i came home to my country Philippines....my question is....how can i check if my korean husband filed a divorce since i heard he is already married now....
You will need to instruct a Korean lawyer to investigate this matter.
Im a filipina and voluntary exit and my friend asking some information about my record and they said its no problem if i enter again. My cased is last time im used phil passport but my father is taiwanese i decide to come in taiwan and apply for residence. I want to travel to korea again for few days using my taiwan passport but im scared if they denied it bec have biometrical. What is the possibility that they need for entering? Invitation? Money? Pls i wait for answer thanks
Taiwanese citizens do not need a visa for South Korea they sre granted 90 days upon entry at the airport or sea port.
You need a hotel reservation or an invitation from a friend , a return air ticket and money to cover your holiday
i am illegally for 7yrs. Last march i got married w/ my korean boy friend i will do self departures soon but me and my husband worry how long it will take to get f6 visa? My husband cannot go with me because he is taking dialysis 3 times a week.. just worry if i stay long in my country and he live alone..

Why not go and see an immigration lawyer and try to apply for a visa without leaving Korea on the exceptional grounds that your hisband is ill
Hi guys. I overstayed in korea for a year only. Now im back in my own country.but before i left korea.i got married with my korean bf first and then went bck to phil.now i already have a baby with my korean husband..can i still get visa? F6 VISA.would they give me? Were planning to go back korea ds decmber with my baby.thank you
"I overstayed in Korea for a year only."
That is a very serious infraction.
In any case no one can venture a guess when you might be allowed to re-enter Korea when you give no info regarding how long ago this happened.
Have your husband contact Korean Immigration. He's the one who should be researching the situation.
my husband already ask korean goveent about it.and they said maybe they can consider for the child
it happen last year only.. I overstayed last year and now im back in my country last april 2017
The minimum ban for overstaying is 2 years. However you are married to a Korean and are the mother of a Korean child, you have the right to apply and the Korean immigration should demonstrate leniency. Good luck
yes that was my husband told me..Im married to a korean and we have baby so i dont need to be worry.thank you so much
