Valid passport (at least 6 months validity) and Korean visa are required to enter the Republic of Korea. For more accurate information, we recommend you to contact a Korean Embassy in each country to ask about the necessary documents for visa issuance. It is also highly recommended to apply for a visa at least one month before your departure for the Republic of Korea as your visa process may take time. Nationals of those countries or regions with which Korea has signed a visa waiver agreement can enter without a visa up to 30 or 90 days. For more information on visa issuance, please visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea.
