New Korean visa application to start July 2018

Korean visa application will soon have a new process starting July 1, 2018.

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in the Philippines stated that  Filipinos who will travel to South Korea may apply for a visa only through travel agencies. According to the embassy, they are implementing this new policy because of  the increasing number of Korean visa applicants, which lead to inconvenience of many.

“Total number of visa applicants increased from 90,000 in the year 2015 to 120,000 by the end of 2016. In the year 2017, total number of visa applicants recorded was around 160,000…This increase in number of visa applicants caused the applicants to stand in hot weather outside the embassy for hours to wait in line for their turn to apply for respective visa” they said.

The embassy has authorized 35 agencies to process Korean visa application.
