If you are a Filipino living in Abu Dhabi and planning to visit Korea, let us help you with the visa process. First of all, it’s important to note that there are two ways to enter Korea: directly via the airplane, or by ship. The former is applicable if you want to take a vacation and enjoy their eco-tourism, while the latter is appropriate if you are going to work and find a job at the same time. Many people opt for the latter
The Korean Consulate General in Abu Dhabi is currently accepting appointment requests for the year of 2018. It is now possible for Filipinos to apply for visas to visit South Korea. This has been made possible by the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed between Korean Immigration and Filipino Bureau of Immigration.
These are the steps I did to apply for my Korean visa in Abu Dhabi, UAE. It is valid for 60 days from your entry date, and you can stay in Korea for 30 days.
