The online ETA South Korea visa is an upcoming electronic travel authorization expected to permit eligible citizens to visit South Korea for short stays for tourism.
The government is expected to introduce the ETA for South Korea in 2021 in order to expedite the process of applying for a tourist visa and eliminate the need to submit a visa application in person.
Once the system is introduced, eligible citizens will be able to apply for a South Korea visa through the simple Korean visa online application.
It is expected that applicants will be able to complete the South Korea ETA application form in just a few minutes with basic personal, passport, and travel information. It is also expected to be necessary to provide a current email address to which a copy of the approved South Korea travel visa will be sent.
It has not yet been announced if the eVisa for South Korea will be made available for purposes other than tourism. It will be necessary to contact the nearest consulate or embassy of South Korea for information on other visa types.
