NOTE TO TRAVELLERS TO KOREA!

Recently, there have been precedents for refusing entry to the Republic of Korea to foreign nationals who have received a visa in the Korean embassy, due to mismatch of stay and residence status upon the results of inspection carried out at the airport of the Republic of Korea.

Consequently, we ask the citizens who have received a visa at the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Kazakhstan to pay attention to the following:

1.     Since the entry visa is only "a recommendation to enter" issued by the consul, at the request of the foreigner, entry into the Republic of Korea cannot be allowed at the airport, even with such permission, if check results do not meet the necessary conditions of entry permits.

2.     Currently, the Korean Immigration Service carries out strict control on compliance with the purpose of entry of foreigners and their stay in the Republic of Korea. We ask citizens arriving for tourism or shopping tour also take into account the items mentioned below:

  • the presence of the inviting party or the Korean travel company
  • presence of inviting party at the airport
  • the presence of an accompanying guide of travel agencies
  • the accuracy of the information about the tourist nature of the trip
  • the round trip air ticket, or the fact of the return air ticket reservation
  • the reservation in the intended place of residence and a concrete program of stay
  • the availability of sufficient funds for travel
  • availability of documents confirming the nature of the business trip (the invitation, the contract for import / export, or documents on past transactions, etc.)
  • possession of information about the market for products purchased for export / import and basic knowledge in this field
  • verification of the method of payment for products purchased for import / export (cash, bank transfer, etc.).

Documents issued: from 17.00 to 18.00

Processing time: 5-6 working days
