A valid passport (at least 6 months validity) and Korean Visa are required to enter the Republic of Korea.
For more accurate information, the secretariat of KSSS 2023 recommends you contact your local Korean Embassy to ask about necessary documents for visa issuance.
It is also highly recommended you apply for the visa at least one month before your departure for the Republic of Korea as the visa process may take time.
Nationals of those countries or regions with which Korea has signed a visa waiver agreement can enter without a visa for up to 30 or 90 days. For more information on visa issuance, please visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea.
