Hoping to get some ideas here. Need some advice.
Cliff's Notes version:
Came to Korea on July 31st, 2010.
Re-signed with the same hakwon on July 31st, 2011 for another year.
On October 31st 2011 I was let go by my hakwon due to financial issues (going out of business).
ARC says E-2 visa ends in August 2012. Have until December 1st to find a new job.
When I re-signed all I needed for documentation was my new contract and ARC. I came here on a notarized state-level CBC and original diploma.
A few weeks after being told that I would be let go, I applied for an FBI background check and sent everything through the mail.
Early November I was told my prints were rejected. Immediately sent in a few more pairs of prints.
Attained letter of release from previous hakwon.
Found job with new school. Have still not got my FBI background check back yet. I'm assuming I'll get it by early January.
Immigration needs "proof" that I applied for a background check....except that I didn't make photocopies of my prints and lost the tracking number to show when the package arrived ( I don't even know if that would be good enough proof).
New school's contract says new E-2 visa will begin on Dec. 12 2011 and end Dec. 2012.
Is there a way that immigration will give me until say, January to give them a copy of my background check. I'll have it by then, at the latest. Would it help if my new school simply transferred my existing visa which ends in August to their name? In effect, simply changing my employer and not giving me a new E-2 visa (which seems to be the problem).
