Starting July 1, the Embassy of Korea will no longer issue visa labels on passports

Starting July 1, applicants for a Korean visa will no longer have a visa label stamped on their passports.

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea announced that they will no longer issue visa labels for applications processed in the Philippines. This is because the visa status will be checked and verified using Korea’s latest visa information system.

Instead, the Embassy will release details of the applicant’s visa details through a Visa Grant Notice on the official website. Applicants can access the status of their application by entering their passport number, date of birth, and other relevant information.

The Visa Grant Notice will contain applicants’ personal details, as well as visa details like:

  • Visa issuance number
  • Status of stay
  • Period of stay
  • Number of allowed entries
  • Date of issue
  • Validity of visa
  • Issuing authority

All foreigners seeking entry to South Korea are required to present the Visa Grant Notice to the Korean Immigration. They must also present the passport for identity verification.
