Kind regards from South-Korea

Sharing my thoughts and experiences about my exchange period in South-Korea

Tag Archives: embassy

Less than 20 days

Just got my passport back with the visa, yay ! No stress about that anymore 😀 It only took 3-5 business days, I thought it would take like 2 – 4 weeks so I wrote them a letter asking if they can call me and tell me how long it would take normally. They did call me and the lady from Embassy of the Republic of Korea who spoke with me in the phone was really nice and friendly. All the fees including posting was around 70-80€. Plus I had to pay 50€ to the bank for writing a letter of confirmation about my finances for the visa.

I also got the extended insurance, it cost me 130€ and bought a new phone, Oneplus X and new laptop, Lenovo U31. Im spending too much money :’D not good..

Finnair finally answered me, they might actually compensate for the loss. I had to book a night at the hotel (60€) near the airport beacuse I’ll arrive to Incheon airport on 23rd and Ajou University’s free bus ride is on 24th. Dormitory opens on the same day too.

Lists of courses was released 2 days ago. It’s not complete yet, but they will release the final version of it this Friday. They supposed to release it last Friday actually, but it got delayed. There was few interesting courses, like Taekwondo, Jazz dance or something like that, Golf etc.. I must get the Taekwondo course ! 😀

Lists of room assignment results was also released. I got a 2-person bedroom in new international dorm and I’m sharing the room with Korean student. Got a e-mail from AGA Ajou Global Ambassador, there’s a guy that will be my buddy for this semester.

I’ll better go eat my breakfast now.

Kind regards,

Tam
