The online South Korea visa waiver, or K-ETA, is an electronic travel authorization.
It permits eligible citizens to visit South Korea for short stays for tourism, visiting family and friends, and business activities such as attending meetings and seminars.
The South Korea K-ETA is a multiple–entry online visa waiver valid for 2 years from approval. It allows you a stay of between 30 and 180 days per entry, depending on your nationality.
The ETA for South Korea is designed to make it quicker and easier for you to authorize your trip, using a simple online application system.
As well as speeding up the application process and streamlining border control checks, the K-ETA also improves security checks. This makes traveling to South Korea safer than ever before.
Eligible citizens can now apply for a South Korea visa waiver through the simple South Korean ETA application online in just a few minutes.
Although the K-ETA is temporarily not mandatory for around 20 visa-exempt citizens, it saves you the hassle of queuing at the border to complete an arrival card.
To visit the country for purposes other than those permitted with the South Korea ETA, or for longer consecutive stays, or if your country does not qualify for the South Korea ETA, you should contact the nearest consulate or embassy of South Korea for information on other South Korea travel visa types.
