Step 1 – Apply for K-ETA or Visa
Apply for K-ETA at least one (1) month prior to your departure as the Embassy would not be able to assist you with checking or expediting the progress of your application. If your purpose of visit is not covered under K-ETA or your nationality is not eligible for K-ETA, get in touch with us for the application of an appropriate visa.
