        E-visa to Korea, urgent service, 1-2 working days, 88 SGD

        • Please note: An additional 5% will be added to the total amount as this is what we are being charged by the banks for transactions.

        • Your approved ETA will be sent to the email address you provided during your application. Double-check your email address to ensure a smooth visa delivery – a typo could cause delays.
        • In case of delays or a visa refusal due to circumstances beyond our control or inaccuracies in the application form, the fee paid is non-refundable. This fee is designated for the processing of the application itself, and it is not dependent upon the outcome of the application.
        • K-ETA approval does not guarantee entry to the Republic of Korea. The final determination of a traveller’s entry will be made by the immigration official at the point of entry.
        • Providing false or inaccurate information on your K-ETA application will result in denial or cancellation of your K-ETA approval. This may also lead to penalties or restrictions on entering Korea according to South Korean law.
        • Even if your K-ETA has not expired, you are required to apply for a new K-ETA if there are any changes to your information, such as name, sex, date of birth, nationality, passport information (passport number, passport expiration date), infectious disease or criminal record.
        • Those with K-ETA approval can go through immigration more conveniently, as they will be exempted from submitting the arrival card upon entry.
