Recently, South Korea and the Philippines celebrated its 70 years of diplomatic relations. South Korea announced that they have reduced the requirements for visa application. This is to give ease to the applicants in gathering the requirements. This is good news to Filipinos.
The Korean Ambassador said that they are considering this option to government workers, media, and other professionals. They will offer five to 10 years multiple-entry visa. The applicant may only present one document such as an employment certificate. Good news is that Korea is giving such privilege only for Filipinos.
The reduction of requirements for south korea visa application is a great relief for applicants. It would also save them time and money in securing the documents. In the same manner, the application process was also made easier. It’s because the travel agency will be the one to submit and follow up the visa application to the Korean Embassy. This means that applicants need not stand long hours in the queue to submit the requirements.
The Korean government is also eyeing to increase the scholarship grants to Filipinos. This is possible through the student exchange programs. They are encouraging talented Filipinos particularly those studying in universities to apply for the scholarship. In the same way, the Philippines is also accepting students from Korea to study in the country. This is a big opportunity for Filipino students to continue their studies in Korea. They will also have the opportunity to see their favorite Korean idols.
Mr. Han said that the good diplomatic relations of Korea and the Philippines helps a lot to the tourism of both countries. In fact, the number of tourists visiting Korea has been increasing every year. Definitely, more Filipinos will try to visit Korea due to minimal requirements.
