Planning of Visiting South Korea? First you will need to have a Visa.
What are the requirements to get a tourist visa for Filipinos?
It’s easy. If you are an employee, you only need the following:
Ø Original copy of your COE (Certificate of Employment) – of course, you’ll get this from you company!
Ø Photocopy of your Latest ITR (request to your HR)
Ø Original copy of your savings bank account certificate (at least 50thousand or above)
Ø If you are invited by your relative from Korea (include it)- optional
Ø Photocopy of the first page of your passport
Ø 1 – 2×2 picture, or passport size picture
Ø Accomplish visa form (will be given at the Korean Embassy)
Ø If you have New Zealand, US, British or Japan Visa, include it also (optional)
Processing is 5 days. If it’s your first time to apply, it would be better if you’d tour other country, so your visa will be approved.
If you will stay in South Korea for more than 11 days, then, you have to pay 1500, I think.
But if shorter than that, it’s FREE.
Where can I find Korean Embassy?
Korean Embassy is now located at McKinley Hills, Taguig City.
How to get there?
Take a taxi, much easier! Hehe
If you’re coming from Edsa, go to Guadalupe Tulay near Jolibee, take a jeep going to C5, or Mckinley.
