Recruiter In Korea

The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

E-2 Rules to be Postponed? E-2s to have more Autonomy?

with 2 comments

Nothing has been confirmed yet but rumour (HT to Popular Gusts) has it that the new E-2 rules (nationwide criminal background check) will be delayed until 2012.  Looks like a lot of employers/recruiters were complaining that the check takes too long for instructors to arrive January onwards.  Not a problem with my company as we have a stack of candidates with completed FBI checks!  (Note to other recruiters:  recruit in advance).

Also, in other E-2-related news, it seems that the current restrictions placed on E-2 holders will be relaxed to allow them to work at multiple locations and other jobs (like privates-legally of course).

Has the government finally come to its senses?  Don’t hold your breath.  It seems that there are now more restrictions for F-visa holders and less for E-2s due to some incidents.  Well, I guess we’ll see what happens in the coming months.

I’ll keep you posted.

  1. If they allow privates, people who do them will be pissed. No more charging 50,000 for an hour when someone fresh off the boat will do it for 15,000.

  2. Wow… legal privates? That would be a game changer. I wonder if the going rate would really drop as Josh suggests. I somewhat doubt that the current rate is due to scarcity caused by skittish, law-abiding English teachers.
