Easier application of Multiple Entry Visa to South Korea offered to selected Filipinos

Planning to visit South Korea soon? Good news! Eligible nationals from Myanmar, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Laos, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Vietnam, India, and Bangladesh could now attain multiple entry visa for South Korea. This is to attract more travelers from the said region by giving easier processing to documents.

In the previous years, the citizens from the said countries, including Filipinos were required to obtain a visa every time they visit. The multiple entry would they’ll be issuing would allow holders to visit the said region while their documents are valid.

The visa only allows professionals –limited to doctors, lawyers, professors, graduates of local universities with a degree for any four-year-plus program and those with an overseas academic degree equivalent to or higher than a master's degree.

"Those with the least risk on our country's part of infringing on Korean immigration laws, like staying illegally or getting a job without a valid work permit." The ministry explained.

The said multiple visa – C-3 visa has a 10 year validity and each stay allows the holder with a 30 day visit each.
