South Korea to relax visa application requirements for Filipinos

People planning to travel to South Korea but are intimidated by the visa application process can breathe a sigh of relief.

South Korean ambassador to the Philippines Han Dongman has announced that the embassy is cutting down the number of required documents for visa applications, especially for qualified government workers, media, and professionals.

The announcement was made in the midst of the 70th anniversary celebrations of the Philippines and South Korea.

Ambassador Han said that the abovementioned applicants can get a multiple visa good for five to 10 years by submitting a document stating that they work for their organization.

Last year, visa applications were coursed through accredited travel agencies to reduce the lines at the Embassy of South Korea.
