I'm being jerked around. What's the way to get out of the country? Is immigration going to say something? I have a E2 visa and want to get a one-way ticket to Japan. Will the one-way ticket raise eyebrows? Has anyone actually been kept in country by immigration (refused to board the plane)? If so, under what circumstances? In a hypothetical vein, if one's passport is separated from him, can one get a new one at the embassy in Seoul; and, if the case, will immigration ask why there is no visa in the new passport? What role does immigration have in this case?

What's the best way to break contract? Thank you.

It really depends upon your own conscience. If you don't feel guilty about breaking a contract then, do a runner. However, that's only possible when one goes home on leave. You just don't return.

Another way is to ask for compassionate leave; a death or grave illness in the family and then not return.

You could make such a nuisance of yourself that they will want to get rid of you and as a consequence send you home.

I assume that they have not broken the terms of the contract, otherwise you wouldn't be asking the question.

I have no experience of Korea but many countries require an exit visa, in order to leave the country and so even if you had a passport, it would be of no use to you without the exit visa.

Bribery/bucksheesh is another alternative. Pay someone dollars, in the company, in order to get the necessary paperwork for you to leave the country.

Don't go shouting your mouth off but be persuasive.

Hope this helps - it works for me

There are threads about "Midnight Run" or Runners, that you should read about.
