2022 List of Accredited Travel Agencies for KOREAN VISA Application

2022 List of Accredited Travel Agencies for KOREAN VISA Application

Here’s the list of TRAVEL AGENCIES officially accredited by the Korean Embassy to accept KOREAN VISA APPLICATIONS, with addresses and phone numbers.

South Korea is one of the most popular destinations for Filipino tourists, so when the country announced that they’re opening quarantine-free travel for international travelers early this year, revenge travelers rejoiced! Soon after this announcement, the South Korean Embassy in the Philippines resumed processing tourist visas.

As of writing, there are two ways you can apply for a tourist visa.

  • By scheduling an individual appointment through the Korean Embassy’s Online Visa Appointment System. More info here.
  • By coursing your application though a travel agency accredited by the Korean Embassy.

Please note that walk-ins are no longer accepted at the embassy.

Because of the huge volume of applications, securing an appointment through the website is a bit of a challenge at the moment, so having the option to process it through a travel agency is great. It is also a more ideal option for those who don’t have much free time and those who are located outside Metro Manila. The Embassy has designated 36 travel agencies, but many of them have branches in other parts of the Philippines.

Here are the travel agencies that are accredited by the South Korean Embassy for visa processing. We sorted it by location to make it easier for you to find those close to you.

WHAT’S COVERED IN THIS GUIDE?

The Embassy has accredited 10 travel agencies in the City of Manila, but two of them have multiple branches across the city.

These two accredited travel agencies help us keep this website updated when it comes to visa-related content, so it would mean a lot to us if you course your application through them.


Do I need to schedule an appointment with the Korean Embassy if I’m applying via a travel agency?

NO. The designated travel agency must make the appointment on your and other applicants’ behalf.


Are there additional requirements if I apply via a travel agency?

Yes! If you’re planning on applying via a travel agency, you also need to submit a Letter of Attorney for Visa Application on top of all the standard requirements.

You may download the template here.


How much is the fee when applying for a Korean Visa via an accredited travel agency?

Usually between P700 and P1500. Different agencies charge different rates.

Note that the actual visa is FREE OF CHARGE. The Korean Embassy doesn’t collect payment. What you’re paying for here is the service fee charged by the travel agency.


Can a travel agency refuse to accept an application?

Yes. Just like on individual applications, the Korean Embassy has implemented a limit or quota to the number of applications that each accredited travel agency may submit. Hence, travel agencies may stop accepting applications if they feel like they have reached that limit or if the backlog piles up.

The Korean Embassy sometimes posts the number of pending applications per agency on the VISA ANNOUNCEMENTS page. This should give you an idea which agency has a lot of applications on their plate.

A travel agency may also refuse your application based on its assessment or on other factors relevant to the documents you submit.


Can I apply via a travel agency that is not accredited by the Korean Embassy?

Yes. As of this writing, other travel agencies may still book an appointment with the Korean Embassy online but they are subject to availability of slots per day.

In addition, Some non-accredited travel agencies may course an application through an accredited travel agency. This is sometimes the scenario in provinces without any accredited agency. A non-accredited local agency may choose to submit it to a partner agency that is designated by the Embassy. But because of the layers, this set up tends to cost more.
