Requirements in Applying for a Korean Visa in the Philippines


■ Download and fill up the Application form.
■ 1 piece of the Passport size colored picture. You may tell a studio photographer that you’ll be using it for South Korea Tourist Visa.
■ a Philippine Passport which is valid for at least 6 months at the time of departure.
If you don't have one, better to have your appointment now. Click here for the requirements and setting up an appointment.
■ Photocopy of Passport Bio-page (page 2)
■ Original & Photocopy of valid visa/s and arrival stamps to OECD member countries for the past 5 years (If applicable only)
■ Original Certificate of Employment
(must include applicant's position, date hired, compensation, office address, HR landline number(cell-phone number is not allowed), HR email address)
If you are not employed but your parents are, these are the requirements that you need to secure:
Original copy of your parents' Certificate of Employment (if they are employed)
Photocopy of your parents' Business Registration from SEC or DTI and photocopy of their Business Permit or Mayor's Permit (if they are self-employed)
Photocopy of your parents' ITR
Photocopy of your parents' NSO Marriage Certificate
Photocopy of your birth certificate
Photocopy of your school ID
Original copy of your school certificate
■ Original Personal Bank Certificate and Bank Statement
You can get these from your bank, I got mine from BDO. They charged me P100 for the Bank Certificate and P100/page for the Bank Statement.
I think this will serve as a proof that you can afford to travel to their country and I guess the amount of money you have in your bank doesn’t guarantee you 100% approval of the visa.
■ ITR(Income Tax Return) or Form 2316 Copy
This can be obtained from your respective company, if you don’t have this, I suggest you write a letter of explanation (if you’re a freelancer or if you’re a tax-exempt employee)

■ Copy of PRC Card or IBP Card (If applicable only)
