I will soon start my internship (6 Months) in South Korea and I wanted to ask if it is possible to go there as a tourist and do all the paperwork there. I basically have all the documents I need but still had some complications in the embassy in my home country. I will soon go back to the country where I study (Germany) and from there I will fly to Korea. I could also try to apply to the internship visa in Germany but it is far from where I am and I am not sure it will be ready on time. Anyone had some experience changing status in Korea?
The visa in question would be a C4 visa.
