For investors who have invested in domestic corporations, it is more difficult than foreign direct investment.
First of all, 100 million won is deposited into an already established company, so the investment is made through a capital increase.
Since a corporation has already been established, it may be simpler, but there is no difference in cost as the method of establishing a new corporation or raising a capital increase is similar.
However, from the immigration point of view, capital increase is more difficult than general foreign direct investment.
First of all, even if you have made an investment, you will get a closer look at the relationship between the existing legal entity and the investor, as well as the reasons why investors should invest.
And the biggest burden is that investors can be fined in the first place.
Although each person in charge of immigration is slightly different, the regulations inevitably impose fines, so you need to proceed more carefully than a regular investment visa from the beginning.
Fortunately, in this case, the corporation was established and investors made investments in the preparation stage, so it was a little easier.
However, in this case, since I was changing the status of residence from D2 visa to D8 visa, it would be worse if I took the time, so I proceeded as soon as possible.
If possible, I sought understanding from other people and proceeded, so the proceeding was a little faster, and the proceedings proceeded without a fine.
Since this person was a Chinese SNS star, he had a lot of followers, so he made an investment proposal by a Korean subsidiary.
In our case, we often do investment visas for Chinese SNS stars, but SNS stars are very busy compared to general investors.
So, as an administrator, you have more work than regular investors. I need an investment visa, but there are many cases where I cannot prepare the documents properly because I am too busy, so I request more from people who help me around us, and sometimes I visit myself.
So, in terms of cost, social media stars are more proactive because they pay extra fees.
