Filipinos may soon be able to visit South Korea visa-less. However, the said privilege may be granted to group tourists for now.
In an announcement posted on the website of Embassy of South Korea, the visa-free system, which will be tested on the first half of 2020, will be granted only to group tourists who will visit South Korea with Jeju Island as their final destination and “only group tourists with certain requirements will be given these benefits.” There is no information yet as to what these requirements are. It was also mentioned that this matter will be further discussed with the related ministries of South Korea until February 2020.
Stay tuned for further updates and don’t forget to check their website for announcements.
