Before traveling to Korea, individuals must obtain a K-ETA. The slightest application mistake can lead to a denial, but working with KETAVISA can ensure approval.
Travelers must obtain a Korea Electronic Travel Authorization (K-ETA) before traveling to the Republic of Korea, and KETAVISA can ensure the application is completed accurately and approved.
A K-ETA is required for anyone traveling to Korea who does not have a Korean visa , including tourists and businesspeople. Only a K-ETA is necessary for travelers from most countries; however, if the traveler has a valid Korean visa, they do not need a K-ETA.
Travelers must apply for a K-ETA at least 72 hours before their trip, and a K-ETA remains valid for two years from the approval date. Approval can take one to two business days if all information is correct.
Those without a K-ETA cannot travel to Korea, and any false information on the application — even a typo — can lead to the application being denied. Travelers can re-apply with correct information, but any details that are inconsistent with the original application can lead to another denial. If someone cannot successfully obtain a K-ETA, they must contact their country's Korean Embassy for assistance or to apply for a visa.
Get approved the first time.
Located in South Korea, KETAVISA checks and verifies the information on a K-ETA application submitted through its website to ensure all details are accurate. Using this proxy service can save a traveler time and offer peace of mind that the application was submitted correctly the first time.
To apply for a K-ETA, the traveler must have a valid passport from their country of origin, a valid email address, a recent photo, and a credit or debit card for the $50 fee. However, KETAVISA is currently offering a reduced fee of $40 and providing a $5 coupon as a gift to use in Korea or before departure for every applicant. The application is straightforward, but applicants should have the following information handy:
– Access the application through KETAVISA's website.
– Provide a valid email address and passport number.
– Enter passport information, including biodata, name and surname (in English), and the passport expiration date.
– Provide personal information and your trip details: name, address, hotel bookings, flight information, and arrival and departure dates.
Note that the K-ETA does not allow a traveler to enter Korea — upon arrival, immigration officials will decide whether a person can enter and how long they can stay. To help ensure entry, have a valid passport — the same one used for the K-ETA application — a return flight ticket, bank statements proving the trip costs can be covered, and a printed K-ETA.
KETAVISA can ensure a traveler's K-ETA application is correct and approved for their upcoming trip to Korea.
