Korean Visa Application 2022 for Filipinos

When the world stopped from moving due to the pandemic, many people might turned to Korean Dramas like me. That’s why when the country opened to tourists again, a huge flock of people wanted to go.

And so, there are a lot of applicants for visa waiting outside the Embassy as early as dawn just to make sure that they can get a slot.

That’s why, the Korean Embassy and Consulate of Korea in Cebu implemented the Online Appointment.

Actually, there are two ways to apply a Korean Visa.

Via Accredited Agency

Online those agencies accredited and endorsed by the Embassy are allowed to process the visa. There are limitations in terms of number of applications they can cater each day. So better check it with them on the schedule and the requirements.

These are the 36 accredited/designated travel agencies with the number of pending applications as of October 17, 2022.

Via Online Appointment

Determine the type of visa you are applying. Tourist Visa Code is C-3-9. Each visa type has different requirements. So check it beforehand.

List of Visa Type and Requirements

Once you have the list of requirements for your specific visa type, complete the Application Form (make sure it is the latest version) and prepare all the requirements. Double and triple check everything before going to the Embassy or Consulate Office.

Schedule your appointment online thru https://consul.mofa.go.kr/en/main.do

The following is needed for the online appointment:

  • Passport Number of the applicant
  • Contact Number of the applicant
  • Email Address of the applicant

Choose the date and time for your appointment.

Once completed, visit the Embassy or Consulate Office on the date and time of your appointment. Bring the following with you:

  • A printed or soft copy of your Reservation Confirmation which will be provided after completing the appointment process
  • Completed visa application form
  • All the required documents
  • Identification Card and Passport of Applicant

You can refer to the Korean Visa Online Appointment Guidelines for the detailed procedure.

The application form and documents will be screened by the in-charge. If completed, you will be provided with the claim slip that indicates the tentative releasing date.

Again, with the huge number of applicants these days, there is a possibility that the releasing date will go beyond the tentative date. So it is better to apply for your visa earlier if you have a plane ticket already or you have desired travel date. The Single Entry Visa is valid for 3 months.

It is also advised to purchase the plane ticket if you already have an approved visa.
