Last updated: DECEMBER 13, 2019.

Here’s the list of TRAVEL AGENCIES officially designated by the Korean Embassy to accept KOREAN VISA APPLICATIONS. We also added their many branches and phone numbers.

The process of applying for a South Korean visa is straightforward. Getting one is easy, as long as you have all of the documents and meet the requirements. Before, you could go to the embassy and apply for one on your own. But because the number of Korean visa applicants have doubled over the past two years, the Korean Embassy has enlisted the help of carefully chosen travel agencies to receive the applications for them starting July 1, 2018.

Yep, tourist visa applications must now be coursed through one of their officially designated travel agencies. This means that from this date onward, the embassy will no longer accept walk-in applicants or any direct applications for a temporary visit visa (with some exceptions). Note that the Korean Consulate in Cebu is NOT affected by this and will continue to accept direct applications on site. But if you prefer to apply via agency, we also included accredited agency branches in Cebu.

Although the visa itself will most likely remain free-of-charge, these agencies will surely be collecting processing fees. The rates will vary, but it’s usually between P500 and P1500. Once it takes effect, contact these agencies and compare prices and identify which one is the most convenient to get to.

Here’s how to apply for a Korean visa:

Korean Visa Requirements & Application Process

Anyway, here’s the list of embassy-accredited agencies, their various offices around the country, and their respective contact details. We’re not sure whether or not all the branches listed below are prepared to receive Korean visa applications so get in touch with them before showing up at their office.

  1. Vanessa E Tomas says:

    Thank you The Poor Traveler as always you’re simply the best, thank you for inspiring me to travel with my family, I have become a more brazen traveler because of you

  2. helen says:

    when it will take effect for the said accredited travel agency for filling a Korean Visa

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Helen, no word about the start date yet. It was supposed to begin on May 14 but there seems to have been a delay.

  3. Aldz says:

    The list is incomplete. There are ten other agents accredited by the KR embassy announced last year.

  4. Heike says:

    Thank you very much for this informative post. Are the agencies on the list located only in Manila? I hope you can find the time to separate the agencies by regions. I could use a list of agencies in Cebu for visayas applicants.

  5. Ruby Vitug says:

    ABS CBN News said it would start on July 1. I am also interested to know if there is an accredited travel agency in Pampanga. Thanks in advance.

  6. Alms says:

    Hi, how about the bdo and bpi cc card is it still applicable if it is thru this tour agencies?

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Elena, wala po sa research namin. What you can do is apply at a local travel agency who will coordinate with an official agency. Kasi syempre, mas tataas ung singil nun kasi may patong ung local agency.

  7. Jhackie says:


    What about those who have travelled to OECD countries within 5 years? Do we also need to go through the agencies? Kasi what I have understood is this is for the first time applicants?

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Everyone applying for a tourist short stay visa will have to course it through an agency regardless of whether or not it’s your first time, unless you’re applying in Cebu.

      • Ella says:

        Hi Yoshke,

        I will be applying from Cebu and have been to 4 OECD Countries – France, Germany, UK, Greece.

        Will I have any problem?



        • Yoshke Dimen says:

          Hi Ella, it’s hard for me to say po if magkakaproblem or hindi kasi it’s based on a lot of factors, not just the OECD countries.

  8. JEY says:

    Is it allowed a representative to submit the application in behalf of the applicant?

  9. roxanne says:

    I already have a visa and I want to travel with my sister who is 66 yrs old and a retiree . Can she apply for a korean visa using my documents, me to fund her travel?

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Roxanne, they might still look for her bank documents, but yes, you can sponsor her trip. For better chances, submit a cover letter and affidavit of support.

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Wala pa kami alam if meron sa Negros Occidental. We’ll add if may makita kami.

  10. Jane Rausan says:

    Hello! Would this also mean that the applicant is required to avail for the tour package with the accredited travel agent? Thank you!

  11. Marilou C.Hernandez says:

    Good day!, ask ko lang po sa tulad ko po na gustong pumunta ng korea,unemployed po ako,invited po ako ng isang korean resident.gusto ko po malaman ang exact requirements na mga kakailanganin ko.visit po sana ako ng 3months,magkano po kaya ang kailangan halaga ang laman ng bank account ko?.thanks

  12. Che says:


    Pano po yung bdo and bpi gold cardholders? Need pa rin ba mag travel agency or direct na apply sa embassy?

  13. Polland says:

    Worst JTB is Vertis North. Keep away. Their staff are not equal in competence, and their guidelines are ever-changing (each visit).
    Better visit a different agency.

  14. jessa cerelegia says:

    hello Yosh!

    I am currently unemployed pero meron akong small business like nagpapautang ako ng mga mobile phones but no business permit nor ITR. do you think they will accept it as my rootedness? I have all the receipts as a proof. lahat ng receipts nakapangalan sakin. I have my husband who will support my trip. hoping for your reply. Thank you.

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Jessa, business registration, meron? Kasi if may receipt ka na nai-issue, baka may business registration ka whether BIR, DTI or SEC? Pwede mo isubmit yun.

      • jessa cerelegia says:

        what I mean sa receipts is yun yung mga resibo ng mga phones na binili ko from the phone store. wala din po akong business registration.

        • Yoshke Dimen says:

          Ah, hmmm, mukhang mahirap kapag ganyan. Consult ka na lang sa travel agency since mandatory naman na dumaan sa travel agency. Baka mas may alam sila. :)

          • Jessa says:

            Sige po thank you so much. Pero may isa pa akong hirit. My mom owns a small sari-sari store. Meron syang business permit before from the Barangay pero hindi nya na na renew. Do you think it is helpful kung ipapangalan na lang sakin yung store but the business permit is from Barangay. Is it acceptable?

          • Yoshke Dimen says:

            If soon ka mag-aapply, kahit ipangalan sayo ung business permit, fishy pa rin yun kasi recent lang ipangalan sayo. Most likely hindi pa rin nila itutrust yun, given kung gaano ka-strict ang Korean Embassy lately. And kahit magsubmit ka ng permit, hihingi at hihingi pa rin sila ng ITR and business registration from DTI or SEC, kasi nasa requirements yun.

  15. Jojo Liban says:

    I am an OFW and I want to treat my family of 5 to a tour in Korea. Since ako naman ang gagastos, pwede po bang mga papers, bank documents ko na lang ang isubmit ko for family application? siguro marriage certificate and birth certificates na lang din ng family ko ang kailangan para sa kanila? Then another question po e kung kakailanganin ang ITR e paano po kaya yun gayong wla naman kami nun as OFW? nakita ko lang po kasi na isa yun sa mga major requirements e.

    Thsnk you in Advance po,

    J L.

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Jojo, baka meron kayong equivalent nung ITR sa country kung saan kayo nagwork? Tax document?

      regarding family application, di ako ganun ka-familiar sa policy pag family application kasi di ko pa naranasan. Best to call na lang any of the travel agencies sa list sa taas. :)

  16. Ggg says:

    Hello sir,
    Paano pag december 28-january 1 yung travel namin. When do we start to apply for visa?

  17. Grace says:

    Hi! How much ang need na laman ng bank acct? And if ever na fiance ko ang magssupport sa akin, ano po ang need na proof or docs to submit? Thanks

  18. Warren says:

    Hi ofw ako sa uae. Im travelling to korea sa november pero pagcheck ko sa requirements dito eh more than 6 months dapat ang uae residence visa ko. My visa will expire in less than 4 months. May ibang option pa ba?

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Warren, naku, I’m not familiar with the policy pag dyan sa UAE.

    Hi my daughter wants to visit korea good for 3 days. She is a tourism student can she be given a visa with $2,000 show money, aside from her pocket money?

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Concepcion, assuming all other requirements are met, yes, that’s a good amount for show money for a 3-day trip. :)

  20. lou says:

    ,.”hi good morning…ofw ako here in Thailand, just asking po i want to travel in Korea just a couple of days lng…dpo ba mahirap if mag.isa lng ako…ano po documents needed to apply a visa?thank you

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Lou, if sa Thailand ka mag-apply, di ko alam yung requirements kasi madalas iba-iba yung requirements/process ng Korean Embassy per mission/location.

      But if sa Pinas ka mag-apply, same requirements lang or equivalent documents. Kunyari, instead na ITR, ung equivalent na tax document from Thailand ung isusubmit. Tapos dagdag ka na lang ng cover letter to explain.

  21. James says:

    Hi please recommend an agency that could process tourist visa for korea. I live in santiago city isabela

  22. Rachel Scy says:

    Hi po. Matanong ko lang. Bago lng po ako sa company ko. Started Aug 7 and do you think po ok lng namag-aapply ako for visa? Thank you :)

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      If may past work ka before ka magwork sa current company mo, pwede naman. You can submit yung ITR from your previous company.

      If first work mo yang current company mo, yan yung mas mahirap kasi ibig sabihin wala ka pa ITR. Pwede pa rin i-try, pero greater ang risk pag ganun.

  23. carm says:

    Helo po .. ask ko lang po , mag tour po sana ako sa korea on march (12 days po sana) kaso sa requirements po kasi walang ofw, ofw po ako for 4 years and kakauwi ko lng last sept25 , so ngayon wla pa po akong work , nag aapply po ulit , so wala po akong mga ITR , ano po pwede ko isubmit . Thanks and how much po ang recommended na show money para sa 12 days. Thank you ..

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Carm, di ko po alam pag ganyan situation po. Kung nakapili ka na ng travel agency kung saan ka mag-aapply, best to call them na lang para sigurado.

  24. Gabrielle says:

    hi po. ano po ang mga requirements para sa student visa and auntie ko ang mag support? tapos may isa akong auntie sa korea na nakapag asawa ng korean and e invite niya ako. so sana matulungan niyo po ako Thank you!

  25. Erika says:

    Hi Yoshke! If an American citizen is currently in the Philippines for holiday and decided to visit Korea for 5 days.. need pa ba nya Ng visa from the Philippines to Korea? Or exempted sya?

  26. andie says:

    Paano kung hindi accredited ng korean embassy yung pinag applyan ko ng tourist korean visa ok lang ba yun? Reliable international travel services kz ang agency ko dahil sila din nag assist sakin sa shanghai. Ok lng ba yun kahit hindi sila accredited agencies nyo?

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Okay lang din yun. Pero I think ico-course pa rin nila through a designated agency if di sila accredited so better talaga if through a designated agency na lang para bawas middleman.

  27. Jhensky says:

    Good pm po paano po un mgaaply po ako ng korean visa pero un ITR ko last 2015 pa po pwede po ba un?
    My current work ako now pero tax free na kc

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Jhensky, kahit po tax-free na, may ITR pa rin po. Hingi kayo sa employer nyo. Di nyo po magagamit yung 2015 kasi masyado na yun matagal.

  28. Jhensky says:

    Kahit po wala tax na kinakaltas samen pwede po ako bgyan ng employer kc sabi wala dw po nag ask nako last time.. restaurant po un type of bussiness plss help po thank you

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Kung nagfa-file ung employer mo ng ITR for you, dapat meron. Pero kung hindi, ibig sabihin wala ka talaga ITR. In that case, mas mahihirapan ka kumuha ng visa. You can try explaining it sa isang letter pero di yung guarantee.

  29. andie says:

    Gud am, ask ko lng kung bakit ako lagi nadedenied sa pag apply ng korean visa ko? Kahit kumpleto nman yung mga requirments ko, nkalabas nman na din ako bansa at group tour nman din yung sinasamahan ko, pero denied pa rin kmi ng friend ko 4times nko nadedenied! Nd ko malaman kung bakit eh wala nman ako balak mag TNT sa korea gusto lng tlga mapagtour dun. Nakakainis na kz e tadtad na ng denied yung passport ko.

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Andie, did they give you the reason bakit denied? Usually sinasabi naman nila pero medyo vague yung reasons.

      Pero hindi guarantee ang complete na requirements para ma-approve. Pinaka-important sa kanila ay rootedness —- ano work, gaano kastable ang work, may kakilala/bibisitahin ka ba sa Korea, who’s paying for the trip, may steady cashflow ka ba sa bank.

  30. Cristine R. Mansz says:

    Hi I thought applying through a travel agency is easier pero they actually make it more complicated. Mas marami pa clang requirements kesa pag ikaw ang magaapply. I have been applying my Visa on my own. And this is the first time I had to go through an agency mas marami pa clang kaartehan na hinahanap kesa sa embassy am hoping that they would allow personal visa applications again. Kung tutuusin it’s additional business for them pero mas pinahihirapan nila ang Tao.

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Cristine, di na raw kasi nila kaya yung volume ng applications. So ayun.

  31. edge says:

    hi ,i have a question po. What will i do..? I am an online teacher my student is inviting me. and i want to visit and see my student in person din..I live in Baguio , pero kaylangan kong bumaba to get my visa sa taguig?and i don’t know there is an accredited agency dito sa baguio pra sa will be my first time to travel abroad.

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Edge, ang alam ko, okay lang na mag-apply through mail. Hanap ka lang ng agency na tumatanggap nun.

      You can also apply at a local travel agency dyan sa Baguio tapos sila na mag-coordinate with an official agency. Pero syempre, mas tataas ung singil nun kasi may patong ung local agency.

  32. edge says:

    visa to travel in South Korea pala..i won’t stay long maybe more or less 10-15 days lang.

  33. Mayrell Dela Rosa says:

    Hi. Good day. I would like to ask is it possible to process my korean visa in philippines i’m here in saudi working i’m going vacation in july 5 and planning to travel in korea by july19-23. Thank you.

  34. ces says:


    My boyfriend and I will go to Korea this November, his source of income is by trading. What are additional requirements for him

  35. Vivian says:

    Good day, po gusto ko po saan itanong about sa process ng korean visa w/ an invitation, may invitation papers na po ako from my sister and brother-in-law, at kasama na rin ung bank statements ng brother-in-law ko , but I don’t have a bank acc. It’s is possible to process po kaya? kasi sila po ang mag sponsor sa pagpunta at pag stay ko dun.? Thank in advance

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Vivian, as far as I know, need mo pa rin magpakita ng sarili mong financial docs kahit sponsored. But you can call na lang yung agency kung saan mo plan mag-apply and sa kanila ka mag-consult to be sure.

  36. Ikami says:

    Good day po.
    I am asking about visa requirements. Particularly po sa employee who must include their certificate of appointment or appointment order.

    I lost my appointment order. I asked if the division office could issue another one for me (though they have a copy too), but they said there won’t be another, and that they won’t give their copy. Pwede pong photocopy only? yan lang yung naiwan sakin.

    please respond.

  37. Hirae says:

    Hello po.
    Kailangan pa po ba ng “show money” going to Korea if invited to an event which I already registered/paid for?
    Included na kase dun sa bayad ang hotel, food tsaka tour.
    Please respond.

  38. Annalyn says:

    Hi, im invited by a korean, how much ill it cost for working visa and how long… Thank you…

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      No idea about work visa. Best to contact any of the travel agencies listed above.

  39. Maria says:

    Hi! My familly is planning to go to Korea. However, I’m currently unemployed but my parents will support the trip. Its a graduation gift kasi. Should I prepare some letter or something? Please help. Thank you

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Maria,

      For specific cases like that, you can directly ask the designated agency where you plan to lodge your application. :)

  40. Cy says:

    Hi, Good day! If the agency was suspended is it still okay to process my visa with them when the suspension is lifted? It’s the only one accredited in my City.

  41. Kim says:

    Hi! How long does it take now to process visa application? 2 of the travel agencies I inquired said ” it takes 25 working days now or beyond. No guarantee in tentative release date “.

  42. Nick G. Acuna says:
