Where to Apply for South Korea Visa: Complete List of Travel Agencies

If you’ve been asking yourself, “Where to apply for South Korea Visa” in the Philippines – then good news. Starting July 1, 2018, those who want to travel to South Korea will have to apply through 35 travel agencies. Initially, applicants had to endure long lines at the Korean embassy in Taguig.

If you plan to stay in South Korea for 59 days or shorter, then the application is FREE.

For 60-90-day stays, you will be required to pay the application fee amounting to PHP2,000. Take note that travel agencies charge a service fee, which differs from agency to agency, for processing your application.

The process takes three working days if you’re applying in Manila with OECD tourist visas within the past five years, and five working days if you’re applying in Manila without an OECD visa.

Here’s the list of the designated travel agencies you can visit, along with their addresses, contact numbers, and processing fees.
