IMPORTANT! Starting July 1, 2018, the Korean Embassy will be implementing a new application process, which requires applicants to file at any of their designated travel agencies instead. The company alphalist is also no longer required. For the new application process, read this instead: NEW KOREAN VISA APPLICATION PROCEDURE.

South Korea is a dream destination to many Filipinos. Thanks to the advent of K-Pop, the rise of koreanovelas, and the flourishing of the Korean diaspora in the Philippines.

I have made good friends with a number of Koreans over the years: classmates, workmates, bosses. And all of them have brought with them great tales about their homeland, putting South Korea on my travel map. But it wasn’t until this month that I was finally able to make this trip a reality.

Visa applications can be intimidating to many, especially first-timers. While you may hire a travel agency to do this, I strongly advise you against it because you can easily do it yourself. The truth is, it is a very simple process. Getting a Korean visa is easy, fast, and FREE.

Here’s a quick step-by-step guide on how to acquire a tourist visa from the Korean Embassy on your own.

List of Korean Visa Requirements

Below are the basic requirements.

  1. Duly accomplished application form. Download here. You can also find it below.
  2. 1 passport size colored photo
  3. Passport (must still be valid for at least 6 months)
  4. Photocopy of the passport Bio page (Page 2)
  5. Photocopy of all your OECD Visas (If You Have Them). Only if you have them. If you don’t, skip this part. If you have visas to any member country of the  Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), you will need to submit the ORIGINAL copy and a photocopy of all of them. (Past Korean visas are not counted.) To see all the OECD member countries, visit this website.
  6. If invited by a Korean: an Invitation letter and a copy of the inviter’s passport. (Ignore if not applicable.)

Important Notes

  • UPDATE REGARDING THE ITR! (March 2018): The embassy has announced that starting 26 March 2018, first-time travelers who have NOT traveled as tourists to any OECD country within the last 5 years MUST submit the following:

    For Employees, ITR with BIR Received or BIR Certified True Copy Stamp, and Copy of Alphalist with BIR Received Stamp (Form 1604 CF). You must highlight your name on the alphalist

    For Self-Employed, BIR Form with Corresponding Payment Receipt from a BIR-authorized bank.

  • Frequent travelers who have been to OECD member countries within the past 5 years are also exempted from submitting ITR. I’m not sure how many OECD visas it takes to qualify as a frequent traveler.

How to Apply for a Korean Visa

1. Complete all the requirements.

Make sure you have gathered all the requirements listed above.

The list follows a certain order. The basic requirements first, then photocopy of OECD visas, then the financial/employment documents, and lastly the invitation letter or cover letter if you have it.

You will also be given the list when you enter the embassy, so you can rearrange the docs on the spot.

2. Submit the documents to the Korean Embassy.

Now that you have all the required documents, it’s time for a visit to the embassy. You just need to go to the embassy or consulate, get a number, and wait several minutes.

Here are their addresses:

KOREAN EMBASSY IN MANILA
122 Upper McKinley Road, McKinley Town Center, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig city 1634, Philippines
Email Address: ph04@mofa.go.kr
Contact No.: (63-2) 856-9210 visa local no. 270, 500

At the Embassy in Manila, this is how the process goes:

  1. Register and leave an ID at the guard’s station before entering the consular center.
  2. Once inside, get a number from the personnel stationed by the door. He will check if you have all the docs. If he’s satisfied, he will give you a number.
  3. Wait for your number to be called. Note that there are separate windows for those with and without past OECD visas.
  4. Once called, the staff will double check the requirements and ask you questions. After that, they will give you a slip of paper with the DATE OF RELEASE in it.
  5. Smile. You’re done.

IMPORTANT! Schedule of application in Manila: Monday-Friday 08:30am-11am only

However, come as early as you can. When there are too many applicants, the embassy stops accepting applications earlier than usual.

Visa Fees:
FREE for stays shorter than 59
P1350 for 60-90-day stays

Processing time:
3 working days – for those applying in Manila with OECD tourist visas within the past 5 years.
5 working days – for those applying in Manila without OECD visas

3. Claim your visa on the scheduled date of release.

Return to the embassy on the date indicated in the form given to you.

Releasing of visa schedule: Monday-Friday 1:30pm-4pm

Before leaving the counter, double check that your name, passport number, and other details are CORRECT to avoid troubles in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How early can I apply for a South Korea Visa?

You can enter Korea at any time within the next 3 months (90 days) of the issue date. So if your visa is issued on July 1, you can enter anytime before October 1.

So that means, you can apply as early as 3 months (90 days) before your departure date.

How long would I be allowed to stay in Korea?

59 days, if you’re granted a regular tourist visa.

You can apply for a longer stay but you must be able to justify that.

Do I need to book flights and hotels before applying?

No. They’re not required. I’ve tried submitting these before, but they removed it from the pile.

Do I need a travel agency for this?

The Korean Embassy is set to implement a new application system that would require applicants to course their application through any of their accredited travel agencies. However, that is not in place yet.

For now, you can still work on the application yourself. It’s easy, fast, and free. However, if for whatever reason this isn’t a practical option — you live in the province, you just can’t spare a working day for this — by all means, find a travel agency. Just remember that they will charge you a service fee.

The travel agency we usually work with is Gazelle Travel and Tours, a DOT-accredited firm. They actually became our go-to agency for Schengen visa requirements, but they offer Korean visa assistance too for P700. Again, our experience with them is for flight reservation for Schengen visa. We haven’t tried their Korean visa service. We’re just sharing that they have that service too. Anyway, if you’re interested, email them at travelbookings@1gazelle.com.

My employer said they can’t provide the company alphalist because it’s confidential. What can I do?

Starting July 1, 2018. The company alphalist is no longer required. However, it may be requested as additional document for some applicants.

But if you’re applying before July 1, you will still need to provide it by default. Thankfully, one of the members of our Facebook community, Ms. Caye Sadie, got in touch with the Korean Embassy to ask that same question, and here’s their reply.

If the applicant can’t submit the company alpha list (Form 1604 CF with BIR stamp), they can submit an explanation letter. However, it will be subject to approval of the Officer-in-Charge.

But feel free to call the Korean Embassy to confirm. Here are the numbers:

Manila: (63-2) 856-9210 visa local no. 270, 500
Cebu: (63-32) 231-1516(-9)

What is the Visa Issuance Confirmation in the Section 2 of the Application Form?

The Section 2 of the application form calls for details of Visa Issuance Confirmation. This section is only for those with a document called “Confirmation of Visa Issuance.” Many people think it refers to previous Korean visas; NO, IT DOESN’T. The “Visa Issuance Confirmation” is a completely different document, usually issued in Korea.

If my application is denied, can I apply again?

Yes, but only after 6 months.

What does a South Korea visa look like?

Good luck! Enjoy South Korea!

Very informative!

Judith Arsenio

Hi…it says here that the applicant must come personally to embassy for the application…wla ba silang pareho sa Australian embassy na pwd thru courier pagpadala f from province ang applicant?

Lisa B Cormier

beautiful!

J.m. Acuña

Hi how about Italian visa..pls help thanks

Joseline Alosbaños

Curious on how much should be reflected in your bank certificate.

yoshke

Hi Joseline. They don’t say exactly, but I believe that having a full-time employment and the length of stay weigh more than the bank certificate. A weekend getaway should not call for massive funds, but they will be looking at whether or not you have reason to return to PH (a job or a business).

Maricel Dancel

Can i ask,,what f i have record to immigration.last year i did try to travel singapore but im offload..can i travel another country or apply korea visa

Hindi malakiyung pera nakalagay po tapos kasi palagiko na wewedro lahat ng pera pinapadala sa akin ngayon augs ang po ako nag simula na mag pon sa bank ko pwde ba yung bank statements na lang po sadmit??

Juan Cuadra

Hi! What if you’re unemployed? What category will you fall under? Thanks.

Angie

Pano po pag di na-certify yung bank statement kasi generated online lang?

KJ

You can’t enter the country without the visa. Also, it’s not a good idea to get the ticket first due to the possibility of your visa application getting rejected.

lovely lagasca yabut

thank you so much for this, maybe by this time i can see you korea hehe soon

Rory Magpayo

Serious question – I’m a US citizen but would like to bring some friends from the Phils when I go to Korea for vacation. They are musicians so not necessarily self-employed, meaning they only play in bars etc. I will finance the trip. What do I need to do to prove this? Planning a very short trip, 5 days max. I myself do not need a visa but my friends and I would be travelling from the Phils. Thanks in advance! :)

Rael Daytiquez

Thank you sir :) Great help :)

Gracie

Is there a minimum amout reflected on out ITR/2316? Please we need an info. about it coz we’re planning to apply for a VISA dis March, 2014. Thank u and Godbless.
(we are first timers) and also for bank Certificate

rad bal

Naka reflect po ang gross annual compensation sa bir form 2316..

yoshke

Hi Gracie. They don’t say exactly, but if you’re worried about the bank certificate, make sure you have other supporting documents like Certificate of Employment to prove that you have a job and that you have something that you can’t leave behind in PH (a job or a business).

Don’t take my word for it, though. Coz they really don’t say.

Ehnu

Hi, ask ko lang po kung need pa din yung itr at coe kung may invitation letter naman from a korean citizen?thank you po.

Drahcir Go

Stef Santos

Hi, I’ve got a question, if you don’t mind :) I work online as a freelancer; and though that falls under “self-employed,” I don’t have a recent ITR nor a SEC registration. Would you know if I can submit different documents? Thanks! :)

me

How do you get a bank certificate?

Chris Batoon

you just need to go to the bank branch and request for it. I believe a small fee will have to be deducted from your funds for the certificate request.

yoshke

BDO charges P100. Not sure about other banks. :)

zharahjane ebora

i love this site, thank you for the information,, hope to spend my birthday in korea with my oppa.. ^_^

yoshke

Wooot! Thanks, Zharahjane! :D

Maggie Estavillo

The ITR, SEC or cert of employment are important. Especially bank certificate. You need to have at least 20k in your bank. Been to Korea in 2008, 2009. Lived in Korea fr0m 2010 til 2012. I think the same visa rules still apply for now..

Lee_23

What about for a retired government employee? what are the requirements they need to furnish? My mom is going to Seoul this coming May 2014, Thanks

yoshke

Hi Lee, i’m not sure about the requirements for retired employees. You might want to check with them directly. :D

yoshke

Hi Zenna, it’s possible. :) Just make sure all their requirements are complete. :)

yoshke

Thanks for sharing this, Chris!

eds

meron po bang ibang paraan, kase wala po aqng work and business, tanging sweldo lang na padala ng aswa ang inaasahan q. in short wala po bang alternative na requirements for an ITR?

yoshke

Hi Eds! I’m not the right person to answer this, but I believe you have to indicate on the form who will be shouldering the expenses.

eds

please help.. i don’t have an itr. i dont have a job and business. but i have enough money in the bank. do you think it is possible for me to be granted for an ITR even though i dont have work and business? if not’ is there other way? thanks in advance…

Nash

ilang months po bago mag-expire yung visa kung naapprove?Like di pa kami nakakakuha ng ticket tapos po naapprove na yung visa.. Thanks!

yoshke

Hi Nash! Mine was valid for 3 months!

Mae

Great info! :) By the way, is it advisable na mag-apply for a visa just to check yung possiblity na ma-approve.hehe. We’ve already booked a ticket later this year and medyo nagwworry kami na di ma-approve so gusto sana namin itry na mag-apply earlier. Not sure kasi kung may consequences if mag-aaply ulit kami this year at di naman namin nagamit yung unang application namin (in case na-approve).hehe

yoshke

Hi Mae! I’m not sure of the implications if you do that. :(

anne

hi. may i ask if it’s ok to apply for a tourist visa, in my case kasi i work in the department of health – procurement service but im under job order, meaning contractual. but i’ve already worked there for a year now, regular naman kaming nare-renew ng contract. pls answer. thanks. planning to go to korea this spring.

yoshke

Hi Anne! Yes, I don’t see any reason why it won’t be okay for you to apply for a visa as long as you have a copy of your ITR, bank certificate, and cert of employment (which you can write yourself and just have it signed by your superior).

Ninia

Hi,.panu namn po kung online yung work? like me… yun po kasi lage yung nkikita ko na problem… help anyone??? i really appreciate…thank you

Nessy

Same problem as mine, pano po pag wlang ITR? is there any alternative? may chance ba makakuha ng visa?

Uuwi ako ngayong abril para magbakasyon at magaplay ng visa. pwde kayang walang ITR?

Jasmin

Hi. Ask ko lang po sana if pwede po bang ipadala na lang yong application ng visa namin? If ever po na maapprove ilang months po ba namin ito dapat na e avail?
I’m here po kasi sa Davao City .Thanks

Ma

Hi, we have visa assistance service. You may send your document in our office and we will submit it for you. -mariatherese123456789@gmail.com

travelbuddy

they give out visas valid for three months up to one year (in cases na multiple entry) maybe if you cant come to manila you may want to check a travel agency’s service since the korean embassy accepts applications filed by an authorized representative

tess

Hi what if we will travel the whole family, do i need to bring my children in applying for the visa

travelbuddy

no need to bring the whole family with you…. on your day of application you will just submit the documents… no interviews or what so ever then comeback for the results on the day that they will ask you to comeback

Aiza Marie Angcaya

Hi! I would just like to ask, I’m a student and from the given list of requirements naka-indicate yung Parents’ ITR and Employment Certificate. However, in my case, my mom is a housewife and my dad is a retired policeman. I think it’s quite impossible na to get an ITR for my dad. Is there any alternative for that? Feedback highly appreciated, thank you!

mariz

I love your blog. I keep on reading and reading all your blog posts.^_^ I just want to ask cause i’m planning to have a vacation next year to korea, actually i LOVE KOREA even if i’ve never been there and honestly, it’ll be my first time to travel abroad. I have this dilemma of not passing the visa application. I’m just an ordinary employee of a manufacturing appliances company and have a salary ranging 13k-15k a month. In my itr it’s declared that i’m below minimum wage earner, is there any a chance that i could pass the visa application? Though i have more than 50k savings in my bank account. And which is preferrable, i’ll first book a flight before applying a tourist visa ? (cause i’m planning to book a promo fare (1 fare) or appplying first the visa before booking a ticket which will cost me more than 10k.. thank you. I’ll wait for your reply.

yoshke

Hi Mariz! Thanks for your comment! Apply for a visa first before you book. You will be asked which flight you’re planning to take but no need to purchase tickets yet.

As for the other question, I can’t say whether it would be enough to convince them.

getz

Hi, I want my mom to apply for korean visa but she’s retired na. Ako yung gagasto sa trip, documents ko ba yung kelangan i submit? Like my own bank cert, coe, etc? Pano if I work abroad, so yung bank cert ko ba dito sa country of residence ko yung ipapa submit ko sa mom ko? Thanks!

Nics

Hi! Question on what documents should an OFW (still in abroad) prepare and get from the country they are staying now? Like are there docs(COE,Bank certs.) to be stamped by any government agency abroad?

Danah reyes

Hi, I’m planning to apply for a Korean Visa as an employee which requires a 2316 form or ITR, when I requested my employer for it they said that this is not available in my case because I started working on February 2014 and the filing for taxes were on the same month. Will I still be eligible to apply for the visa?

Ma

Yes you can still apply.. -mariatherese123456789@gmail.com

I heard somewhere that they conduct interviews. Is that true?

jen catubay

hi, balak namin pumunta ng Korea by May 2015,
is it ok to apply for the visa as early as now? Gaano katagasl bisa ng ibibigay nilang visa sa iyo kkung by November kami mag-apply? maraming salamat

Busty Robins

Hi, I need an advise on this. Does Korean Embassy stamp passports during the visit? I just applied for Schengen visa at Norwegian embassy, I got denied for weak country ties. But during the interview, they already stamp my passport stating the embassy name and date of my application. Now, I felt bad coz after almost a month of waiting, they refused me of the visa. And worse is, I already had their stamp on my passport. Does Korean embassy does like this? Please enlighten me on this. Thanks…

pat

Hello. Ask ko lang pano pag d na nagaaral and walang work, ano po gagawin para makaapply ng visa?

joan beliran

hi ask ko lang you said that “you will need to submit the ORIGINAL copy and a photocopy of all of them. (Past Korean visas are not counted.)” sure na po ba ito kasi nakakatakot po bka need po pala sya tas hnd ko na submit and ask ko lng kng na experience nyo na po ito na? salamat and thanks for all the help :)

Andrea

Hi! Thanks so much for your post! :)

I would just like to ask if it is important to have a place to stay in Korea? I am applying as a student tourist. My best friend since high school (who is Korean) invited me and indicated in the letter that I am welcome to stay with her during the duration of my trip. Should I put her address and contact information as my address and phone number in Korea? Or is it advisable to find my own hotel/lodging? My parents will be the ones to shoulder my expenses for the trip.

Looking forward to your reply.

Thank you very much :)

Lahat sila na approve ako lang ang hindi.naiyak ako kasi ako lang maiiwan and masasayang ung ticket and hotel namin 50k! Masasayang kasi di naren tutuloy bf ko since di ako na approve.so sabi ng mga friends namin mag appeal ako.wala namang appeal sa korean embassy.pero nga kami umalis.kinausap ko yung koreana and asking for another chance,kasi sayang ticket ko and sinabi ko kasama ko bf ko,tinanong nya approved ba bf ko sabi ko oo,so binigyan nya ako ng option hiningi nya docs ng bf ko to be my sponsor and gagawa ng affidavit na sagot ako ng bf ko,sa madaling salita hinanap nya yung docs ng bf ko na record sa knila nakita nya yung bank statement.may 1m na time deposit sya sa bpi pero hindi paren sila na convince,sabi ng koreana magdala pa kami ng lahat ng pwedeng magpatunay na kaya ako sponsoran ng bf ko.sobrang nadedepress na ako kasi 5days lang hinihingi ko.so sa madaling salita dinala ng bf ko ang ari arian nya like company papers na sya pag mamay ari.5passbook kasi di sila satisfied sa 1m.sabi ni koreana pinarangka nya kami pakita na daw lahat as in! and properties papers actually medyo na hassle for us kasi nakita na nila lahat lahat ng ari arian ng bf ko.anyway pagkasilip sa passbook!

mia

Hi! Question, how did you appeal? I mean which counter? I got denied of a visa.. well I am currently unemployed but my bank statement and certificate show that I have steady flow of money In my account. I travel frequently, I have a valid multiple entry visas for the US (10years) and Schengen (2years) but they still denied me a visa! Their reason is ‘you failed to prove the purpose of your entry to Korea’ which is so absurd since I submitted my boyfriend’s confirmed hotel and plane bookings. I have put in my application that I will visit him there while he is on business trip in Seoul. Uggghgh.

Ma

Hello Mia, you cannot appeal the visa rejected by the Korean Embassy, they do not accept that, wait for six months. You may re-apply as soon as you want,only if you have a different purpose. -mariatherese123456789@gmail.com

Masasayang kasi di naren tutuloy bf ko since di ako na approve.so sabi ng mga friends namin mag appeal ako.wala namang appeal sa korean embassy.pero nga kami umalis.kinausap ko yung koreana and asking for another chance,kasi sayang ticket ko and sinabi ko kasama ko bf ko,tinanong nya approved ba bf ko sabi ko oo,so binigyan nya ako ng option hiningi nya docs ng bf ko to be my sponsor and gagawa ng affidavit na sagot ako ng bf ko,sa madaling salita hinanap nya yung docs ng bf ko na record sa knila nakita nya yung bank statement.may 1m na time deposit sya sa bpi pero hindi paren sila na convince,sabi ng koreana magdala pa kami ng lahat ng pwedeng magpatunay na kaya ako sponsoran ng bf ko.sobrang nadedepress na ako kasi 5days lang hinihingi ko.so sa madaling salita dinala ng bf ko ang ari arian nya like company papers na sya pag mamay ari.5passbook kasi di sila satisfied sa 1m.sabi ni koreana pinarangka nya kami pakita na daw lahat as in! and properties papers actually medyo na hassle for us kasi nakita na nila lahat lahat ng ari arian ng bf ko.anyway pagkasilip sa passbook! Kung ano yung may laman ng savings ng bf ko!wala pa 1min print nila visa sa harap ko! Tapos kinancel nila yung denied sa passport ko :) sobrang saya lang! Single entry 59 days binigay nila sakin.so ngayon nag apply uli ako same documents nung nadeny ako,inexpect ko denied nanaman ako pero nagulat ako kasi multiple entry ang binigay nila sakin!!!

Hi we are planning to go to Korea on May. My problem is my dad is for retirement, he has a retirement order already cause his bday is on May 2015. So it’s not quite possible to get a cert of employment and maybe an ITR too. What are the requirements for retired policeman or just a retired govt employee. Please reply.

Ma

Just submit his proof of pension and the last ITR -mariatherese123456789@gmail.com

Hi! Just wondering if you know of alternative documents that we can submit instead of a COE? I’ve been unemployed for more than a year now and only earn money from doing various online jobs. I have a recent ITR, voluntary contribution but I do not have a COE. I’ve only been to some countries in SEA and only have visa from PRC and ROC (both were sponsored by my parents). I called the SK embassy and said that since I’m already an adult, my parents cannot sponsor my trip anymore and an affidavit of support will not suffice. I have the other requirements already my only problem is the COE. I hope you can answer my question. Sorry for the lengthy comment.

aii

the embassy told me to just present my bank certificate and statements. i am also of legal age and a secind courser

Hi everyone! My fiance and I opened a joint bank account last year, meaning the names reflected there are our maiden names (me as lady especially). We’re getting married next year and we’re planning to have our honeymoon in SK. Can we use the funds in our joint account as show money provided we have separate bank certs? Or does it have to be a personal account?

Hi! i just want to know if its ok to apply for tourist visa first before booking a plane ticket going to SK?

ariel

ok lang kung sure ka naman maaapprove ka, akin ganun ginawa ko e.

Jea Roque

Hi! If you’re applying as a family, would there be any other additional requirements? Would it be possible if i let my cousin submit the documents to the embassy? Thanks

Jayce Calingasan

Hi Yoshke,

Just a quick question. In one of the fields of the visa application it asked for the countries youve been to in the past 5 years. I went backpacking last december and entered and exited Thailand 3x should i just put the dates i was there or would it help if i submit a letter with it?

Thanks

ariel

nope, makikita naman nila un sa passport kung totoo nagtravel ka e.

yoshke

Hi Jayce, the first time I submitted a separate page enumerating the list of countries I visited and the corresponding dates. I didn’t give explanation.

The second time, I didn’t put the dates at all. I just enumerated the countries. Application was approved both times. But I think it would be best to just submit a separate page if you’ve visited a lot of countries. :)

Arah

Hi! How did you present the separate page? I mean did you use any header or you just enumerate the countries you’ve been to and the corresponding dates? Thanks!

Shayne

Hello, my sisters and I are traveling to Korea this May. We’re applying for student visa. Part of the requirements are the financial documents by parents, what if yung eldest brother yung nags-shoulder ng lahat ng expenses ng family, puwede bang yung documents niya ang i-submit?? Would it be enought to compensate for the “parents financial documents”? Also, do we need to have a cover letter to explain this matter? Thank you very much! Hoping for anyone’s response :)

mae

Good day po! Were you able to go to Korea with your student visa and did you submit school certificate? Thank you!

ariel

Pwede naman un, magpakita ka lang ng files na magpapakita na related kayo. sa form ang alam ko may nakalagay dun relationship mo sa sponsor mo, lagay mo brother ganun. tas ung bankcert niya and all, di kana qquestionin as long as kumpleto ka sa supporting docx.

ruffeecola

About > “You can enter Korea at any time within the next 3 months (90 days) of the issue date. So if your visa is issued on July 1, you can enter anytime before October 1.”
Question, what if I was given multiple entry last June 30, then suddenly my flight was moved from July 30 to October 30, would there be a problem?

Would be glad to hear your thoughts. Thanks.

Hi. Happy New Year! What is the “Original School Certificate’? Is the the duly-accomplished Enrollment Form? Or a certificate issued by the school duly-signed by a competent authority (i. e., Principal, Registrar, President, etc.) stating that the child is currently enrolled in the same school in a particular grade level? Thank you.

Jillian

Hi, I’m planning now to book a trip to S.K, kaya lang ng dadalawang isip pa ko kasi wala pa akong visa. If mag aapply ako ngayung January then if ever maapproved siya. Magagamit ko pa din ba ung visa sa month ng June-Dec 2018? or kailangan pag nag apply ng visa gamitin na din agad siya in 3 months? Thank you in advance. :)

Jsy893

Em Abarra

Hello, hope you can help me. My brother and I will be going to South Korea on June 2018. My Aunt and her family will be joining and will sponsor us. I read in other blogs that Family members are only sister, brother, mother and dad. I was wondering if I should write them in the “Are you travelling to Korea with any family member ?” section? The lines provided weren’t enough for all their names. (They are a family of 5). Hoping for your answer. Thank you!

ann

Jackie

Hi we’re planning to go to Korea this March with my mom who is a senior. Per checking on the list of requirements even if senior they should submit a Bank Certificate, but I will shoulder everything. I have now all the requirements, except for my mother’s bank certificate. For pension lang kasi yun eh. Required pa rin ba? Or will just submit a cover letter that I will shoulder all her expenses during our stay in Korea?

Thanks in advance.

Mosh

Hello po!
Ask ko lang po sana what should I do to get approved a SK visa.
I’m currently unemployed. I quit my job last Dec 2017 and currently looking for one.I have almost 70k in my account.

I’m going there with one of my friend this coming May and we already booked tickets. We are staying there for 5 days. I hope you can help me. Thank you

Jerry

Hi mosh. Ask ko lang if ever na approved po ba ang visa ninyo? Ty

cha

hi, i have been to the Netherlands last MAy 2013, if i will apply a visa for my June 2018 trip, is my OECD visa still within the 5-year qualification? should is stand on the OECD window also?
When is the best time t apply for the visa if my trip is this coming June 2018? thank you in advance

cha

thank you .
i have realized and was told by a friend that my Schengen visa is a business visa – as i was invited by my company although i only stayed for a week. does this mean i am no longer qualified for the applicants with OECD visa?

also, i have been informed by my HR admin that they file the BIR Alphalist online so they no longer have the listing received and stamped manually. will the online form suffice?
and with the 2316, they submit it as a whole so they only have the cover letter stamped. do you think having a company dry seal will make our forms more authentic :-)
it’s my first time to apply for a visa, im kind of nervous :-)

Jerry

Good day! With the alphalist pareho po tayo sabi ng hr namin wala ng bir stamped because of online and yung ruling ng bir. Balak namin mag apply ng visa this week na. 9 years employed. 1st time to travel abroad. Nak ipon ako almost 100k plus sa bank yung gagamitin ko yung payroll atm ko lang hopefully ma approved din. Mag sharw ako ng update ulit. Thank you!

cha

hi po sir. sensya na po late nko nakareply, nabusy sa itinerary ng taiwan. kumuha lang p ako ng xerox s ffice namin ng alphalist pinabura ko lahat ng details basta yung makkita lang ung details ng company at yung list na kasama ako.
dahil maliit na office lang kami, nakahingi ako sa office ko po.
ni-dry seal na lang ng hr namin yung xerox.
sa ngayon di pa ko nakakapagfile kasi nakuha pa ko ng buwelo balita ko mahaba pila e. :-)

Julius

Please let us know paano nyo nagawan ng paraan yung alphalist. Kasi malabo din mag-release ng ganyang document ang HR/Finance namin.

cha

also, is an email add really needed? my HR/Admin doesnt normally put any email add adnshould the purpose say “Visa” purposes? sorry if i ask too much questions :-)

Marianne

Hello.. I want to ask po. We are planning to go to SK on Sept 2018, and this my first time na mag-out of the country. I’m currently working and sa COE ko indicated na 3 years na ko dito sa company. and also I have an ITR. and sa Bank Statement I have almost 50K. We are planning to stay for only 5 days. Do you think I will get Approve? I’m really nervous about Visa

Den

Hi. Can I ask kung anong pwede gawin if yung company hindi nagrerelease ng alphalist? Or if ok lang na burahin yung details nung ibang employees and then yung akin lang yung nakikita? Thanks!

girlonthemove

However, mauuna kami ng mother and 2 sisters ko mag apply ng visa as family this month. Para makag purchase na ng ticket after getting the visa. Then yung papa ko, since ofw siya, sa 1st wk april pa uwi nya, chaka palang sya makapag aapply ng visa.

Hello! I’m planning to apply for a visa pero nagpapanic ako kasi regarding the savings account.. Required ba na passbook savings account? Meron kasi akong savings account pero ATM sya (BPI) tsaka meron din akong payroll na ATM din. Does it matter ba if passbook or ATM? Thank you!

stars and stars

Hi the embassy indicated that starting March 26, there should be a Company Alphalist (Form 1604 CF with BIR received stamp). However I will be applying on March 23 so as to avoid submitting this requirement because our HR cant issue this kind of document they say it is confidential. Do you think it will still affect my visa application?

stars and stars

thank you for this! i hope they accept my documents
