Currently, I'm here on a tourist visa but I'm waiting for my spouse visa to be approved. The problem is, I applied early last month, there was a problem three weeks ago as one of the forms wasn't filled out properly and it had to be filled out and sent back.
My real problem is my visa expires in a few days and I'm sitting here waiting for when my visa will finally be approved. I've heard tell that in cases like this people fly out for a few days (like a weekend), come back Monday morning and stay for another 90 days without a problem.
My real question is how many days do I need to wait? Is 24 hours okay or does it have to be longer? Also, as I'd be going to Korea for a few days in case my visa isn't approved in time, what's a good place to stay that isn't too expensive?
