I read with interest Mr. Noh's article on the consular officers in Seoul
refusing E visas to employees of several large public companies traded on
the Seoul exchange. The consular officers' thinking was that the companies
no longer have Korean nationality because a majority of their shares are
owned by non-Koreans. I work with one of the companies he mentions, and
when this issue arose a couple months ago, the Visa Office at that time
advised the E visa officer in Seoul not to refuse E visas to Korean
employees of the company, at least, not on the nationality ground. The
company has not had this problem since then.
