South Korea Revises Visit Visa Charges for Pakistani Nationals

Visit Visa

In a recent development, the Republic of Korea has implemented notable updates to its visa application requirements for Pakistani nationals, introducing a more stringent process that now mandates in-person submission of essential documents.

All applicants are now obligated to personally submit key documents, including a valid passport, a duly filled application form, and a recent passport-size colored photograph. Specific documents related to the purpose of the visit, such as family reunions, meetings, conferences, and other reasons, are now mandatory for individuals seeking a short-term South Korea Visit Visa.

For those seeking a short-term visa, original and notarized invitation papers, along with a guarantee paper, are prerequisites. The inviter is required to furnish information regarding the purpose of the invitation, business background, and relevant activities. Pakistani invitees must provide additional documents, including a job and income certification, a recommendation letter, and bank statements from the previous six months. Supplementary documents, such as marriage certificates and family registration certificates, may also be required.

The visa fee structure has undergone revision, with the fee for stays less than 90 days set at Rs12,000 and for stays exceeding 91 days, the fee is now Rs18,000. Applicants are reminded that the visa application fee, once paid during the application process, is non-refundable, even in the event of rejection.

With these changes, the Republic of Korea has underscored the importance of a more thorough visa application process, emphasizing the need for applicants to strictly adhere to the specified guidelines for a smooth and successful application. Pakistani travelers planning a visit to South Korea are advised to familiarize themselves with the updated requirements to ensure a seamless application process and avoid any potential inconvenience.
