Hi
I have a question related to being denied an E-2 visa for Korea because of the location of the university where I obtained my degree.

I accepted a job in Korea and was all ready to go until my visa was denied on the basis that my 4 year college where I obtained my degree is located in Italy. I am an American native english speaker, my school in Italy is an American accredited University with the language of instruction being English. And my degree is in English.

However these are the rules apparently for Korea E-2 visa as the University has to be physically located in a native english speaking country. I would have loved to have gone to Korea but since I cannot get an E-2 visa, I am wondering if I will run into this same problem with other countries such as Japan, China, or Taiwan?

If anyone has any personal experience or general info this topic I would really appreciate it! I have found info but can't seem to find a definite answer. Confused
