South Korea is one of the top international tourist destinations among Filipinos because of the prominent Korean influence in our country. Majority of Filipinos nowadays enjoy Korean food, music, culture, films and drama series. This is why South Korea has become a dream country for most of us. The good news is we can turn this dream vacation into a reality starting with the first vital step: Applying for a visa. As you may know, a tourist visa is required to enter South Korea. Don’t worry, applying for a South Korea visa is very easy and totally free!

During the celebration of the Philippines and South Korea’s 70th anniversary of their diplomatic relations last June 2, 2019, Korean Ambassador Han Dong-Man said Seoul will ease the requirements for Filipinos who want to visit South Korea. He announced that they will give multiple entry visa valid for 5 to 10 years and cut down the number of documents needed for visa application–especially for qualified people such as the businessmen, media representatives, and government officers.

UPDATE: Processing of applications for South Korea for a temporary visitor’s visa will be a minimum of  25-30 working days from the date of lodging at the Korean Embassy (excluding Saturdays, Sundays & holidays), according to the announcement of the Korean Embassy last September 26, 2019. Expedite/Express processing option will no longer be allowed starting September 9, 2019 (for both first-time travelers & frequent travelers).

The Embassy will also no longer allow withdrawal/pull out of passports and documents once the application has been received. So please be make sure that you will not be needing your passport until the release of your Korean Visa.
