I am a non-Korean citizen. What kind of visa do I need?

If your home country has a visa waiver agreement with the Republic of Korea, you can enter Korea and stay up to 90 days without a visa. If you are from a country that requires a visa to enter Korea, then we will issue you the necessary documents for your visa application (D-2-8).
