Immigration Office Locatio...

Some immigrations documents can be filed on-line at Minwon 24 or E-government for foreigners, at no charge. Note that both of these sites require that you download Active X.  For some, however, you must visit an immigration office in person. As of 2011, local government offices (Eup, Myeon, and Dong) can issue some immigration-related certificates.  

Immigration 'helpline': In Korea, you can call 1345 (press 3 and then * for an English counsellor). No need to put in the area code, even from cell phones.
