Notice Regarding Increased Number of K-ETA Applications
1. Ministry of Justice informed via official letter on March 25, 2022 that applicants need to apply for K-ETA at least 72 hours prior to boarding the flight as the workload is expected to be increased due to the expansion of the number of countries available for K-ETA application.
However, due to an unexpected increase of applications, the result may not be notified within 72 hours.
Therefore, please apply for the K-ETA with plenty of time in advance.
※ Because of COVID-19, the assessment of K-ETA may be strengthened. Therefore, it is recommended to apply for K-ETA closer to the expected arrival date (1-2 months prior to expected date of entry) rather than applying several months in advance.
2. In addition to the delay in assessment, the response to the inquiries is also being delayed. We apologize for the inconvenience. K-ETA center will do our best to normalize the situation.
