 ❍ Following the implementation of K-ETA, nationals of 107 countries/regions who were eligible for visa-free entry now should apply for K-ETA for the issuance of the boarding pass.(flight or ship)

 ❍ K-ETA authorization is generally valid for multiple trips over a period of two years or until your passport expires, whichever comes first. (Application fee - 10,000 KRW/person)
* Since this is temporary resumption, the K-ETA issued to nationals of three countries/regions (Japan, Taiwan and Macau) from August 4 to October 31 is valid until October 31, 2022, NOT for 2 years.

 ❍ K-ETA is NOT a visa. K-ETA approval does not guarantee admission to the Republic of Korea; a Korea Immigration Service officer at a port of entry will have the final determination.

 ❍ Please note that the information entered cannot be modified once the application is submitted. Therefore you need to re-apply for K-ETA.

 ❍ In addition, if the information on approved K-ETA does not match your passport, your entry to the Republic of Korea will be rejected.
