Korea Tourist Visa Info

Basic Korea Tourist Visa Information

Summerset Travel Agency has partnered with accredited travel operators who are accredited by the Korean Embassy. Please note that there is a daily quota of 100 filling a day. This is due to the huge amount of inquiries and the new Korean Embassy Policy that has put in place.

The average processing time for frequent travellers or first time travellers to Korea (without OECD Country travel) is expected of 10 to 12 working days. This exclude any weekends, Philippine and Korean Holiday in counting.

Validity of visa is only 3 months from the date of issuance. Please ensure your planned travel date is within 3 months prior to the travel date. The best is to apply your visa application 2 months (60 days) before your planned travel date. (Please note not to buy any tickets or packages).

When you submit your visa application to us we need your passport as well. If for any reason you might need your passport within 20 working days, do not apply for a visa. As sometimes visa processing might take longer than the expected amount of days due to huge amount of applications. In that case you should first complete your matters and afterward apply for a visa.

DO NOT purchase or pay any airline tickets or hotel accommodations until you have your visa. The Korean Embassy states that you should NEVER buy until you receive your passport with an approved visa. We at Summerset Travel Agency repeat this statement as for the following reasons. Sometimes there are delays at the embassy which is unavoidable and not everyone will be granted a tourist visa. Delays and Denials happen. Summerset Travel Agency will not shoulder any expenses resulting from delays and or denied visas. You are expected to have only a planned travel date to show the Korean Embassy.

NEVER buy anything until you have your passport with your approved visa in hand. At Summerset Travel Agency our visa support team will also tell you this.

For applying a Korea Tourist Visa at Summerset Travel Agency office in Antipolo we require personal appearance.
For family members, the family member must proof their relationship when submitting the application at our office. The family member must be able to proof him or herself with the PSA certificates. We do not accept anyone without this. requirements. For distant relatives, friends and fiance cannot be guaranteed.

Please note that Korean Embassy requires all documents as they stated. Please ensure that all documents are legally obtained. We do not accept falsified documents and if this has been discovered by the Korean Embassy you might be blacklisted from entering the South Korea.

Racel Bagamaspad

A highly recommended Travel agency. First of all Tourist guides and drivers are friendly they will accommodate you to the fullest they could also be your personal assistant, Photographer, information desk etc. I also recommend The tourist guide name Patrick Bautista And also Our driver Kuya Perds.The synchronization of the two gives impact to the tourists,also the driving hours and how the driver drives along the way was smooth.And they also have free WiFi but Wifi wouldn't be needed in the field because the itineraries are breathtaking. A luxurious trip with freebies with an affordable price. I personally love on how they accommodate the tourists.Thankyou for the well trained employees hope to see more personalities like Mr. Patrick Bautista and Kuya Perds a hardworking, intelligent disciplined Employees.

At first im hesitant to take their services due to legitimacy reasons and my first time to be a joiner. Kuya ferdie is a very good driver taking the safety of his passenger his top priority. Hindi kaskasero at padalos dalos. Pat is a very good coordinator always asking of were ok and if we need something. Will definetly book a trip again with Summerset
