South Korea has been a popular and favorite destination for Filipinos. Due to the increasing volume of visa applicants, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in the Philippines issued a notice of change of visa processing period.

Effective August 22, 2019, the amended visa processing time last April 1, 2019, of 7 working days for a temporary visitor's visa (C-3) has increased to 10 working days. This applies to both first-time & frequent travelers. 

Changing of guards in Gyeongbok Palace is one of the awaited scene by the tourists while touring the area. 

In effect, Rakso Travel will process the visa application in 12-15 working days upon submission of the complete documents in their office. The processing time may also take more than 15 working days during peak season. This is in line with the limited number of slots of application that can be filed on a daily basis in Korea Embassy.
