Sample Visa Application Form & Instructions

Please carefully read the “Guidelines on filling out the Visa Application Form” and the “Photo Requirements” and check the “Guidelines on the document preparation.”

Guidelines on filling out the Visa Application Form

The Visa Application Form must be written in English or Korean with a black pen. The forms completed in Mongolian or any other language will not be accepted. The Visa Application Form must be printed single-sided on A4-size paper. Applicants who bring visa application forms printed on the double sides will be asked to fill out a new form. Where a Confirmation of Visa Issuance (CCVI) is required, the confirmation number issued by the Korean Immigration Service must be stated on the Visa Application Form and a proof document of the receipt of the CCVI must be submitted along with the visa application in a hard-copy format.

Please click here to view a sample application form with additional guidance. 

Please carefully read through the below notice written on the Application Form and be informed.

  1. If extra space is needed to complete any item, record on a separate sheet of paper or submit relevant documents which could support the application.
  2. If you received Korean visa approval, and have new passport issued thereafter in lieu of lost/damaged passport, you must notify the concerned visa office of changes in your passport information.
  3. Possession of a visa does not entitle the bearer to enter the Republic of Korea upon arrival at the port of entry if he/she is found inadmissible.
  4. Please note that category C visa holders are not able to change their status of stay after their entry into the Republic of Korea in accordance with Article 9(1) of the Enforcement Regulations of the Immigration Act.
  5. Providing false information or documents leads to revocation of a visa and permission to stay, and may result in criminal punishments and an entry ban to the Republic of Korea.
  6. Failure to submit all required documents may cause delay or denial of a visa.
  7. Visa applicants must check online on the “Korea Visa Portal website” for visa application results. To receive the disapproval notice in written form, visa applicants must visit the diplomatic office and apply in person. (Please click here to learn how to.)
