Visa Guidelines

Foreign nationals entering Korea are generally required to have a valid passport and a Korean visa assigned by overseas branch of Korean embassy or consular offices. For Indian citizens travelling to Korea, a single-entry visa valid for 90 days is usually issued. For people with past travel to Korea, multiple-entry Visa can also be issued.

  • North & East zone applicants must apply through VFS office at http://www.vfsglobal.com/korea/india/
  • South & West zone applicants can apply directly at their respective Korean consulate offices.
