Anong average processing time for a Korean visa nowadays, like the last couple of months?

^Thanks for replying.

Accdg to Travelpros, 20 working days na daw. Is that true and the case for all agencies now?  Manonood sana kasi kami ng BTS concert next month. But I have a couple of out of the country trips before then so I can?t risk having my passport stuck at the Korean embassy for that long. I?m not really that interested in going to Korea since Japan is way better IMO, but now I?m forced to get a visa to be able to attend the concert there.

^ sis, were you chosen sa raffle?

that's my issue. sept 25 pa selling sa mga di pinalad sa raffle gaya ko. one month from concert date. tapos naka-leave pa ako ng mga ilang araw so di ko maaasikaso agad yung visa.

Hello. We have a 3 yr old kid and plan to fet trazy return shuttle. For sure magpapakandong si baby. I wonder if magpapabayad pa si Trazy kasi they require us to show ID. Has anyone tried this?

Sabi nila 6 weeks na ang processing. Sobrang stressed kasi yung PSA request namin for birth cert di pa dumarating. Travel pros to. Saan pa ba recommended agencies na mabilis magprocess ng visa?

as per the Korean embassy- processing now takes a maximum of 13 working days and they had discontinued the express visa eff. sept 9.

i guess the travel agencies just wanted to manage your expectations that visa processing for Korea takes a longer time now due to the number of applications they handle - which is why they will tell you that it takes 20 working days.

also, the korean embassy is strict - they suspend travel agencies if the forms submitted to them are incomplete or wrong. see below:

TITLE    Notice on Suspension of Designated Travel Agency (ISLAND RESORT CLUB TOUR SERVICES, INC)
DATE    2019-09-16

Please be informed that from Sep. 20, 2019 to Oct. 19, 2019, ISLAND RESORT CLUB TOUR SERVICES, INC. is suspended from filing Korean visa due to violation of Article 4(Responsibilities of the Agencies) and Article 7(Administrative Restriction)

I know!! Sobrang hassle nung samin kasi we were first told na no need ng visa for our cruise since less than a day lang kami sa Busan. Tapos last week, biglang tumawag and need na daw ng visa e next month na yung trip. Now, no agencies are accepting our application kasi nga matagal yung processing. Kaloka!

^sis, wala na kumukuha ng application namin kasi wala daw guarantee na maibabalik passports namin before Oct 25. Grabe, last Friday lang sinabi samin na need daw pala ng visa. Nagon they're working on makasakay kami ng cruise kahit walang Korean visa. More than a hundred nabenta nila and yet di man lang nila kami sinabihan. Nakailang follow up din ako if need pa ng visa, they always reply na no daw. hay! Last resort for our visa is to personally go to Cebu para ipasa sa embassy mismo. If all else fail, itour na lang ulit namin Japan. Haha!

^pwede parin naman. Feeling ko lang mas safe and sure kapag personally ipapass. Baka kasi madelay pag sa courier or worse, mawala nila docs and/or passport. I've checked the airline tickets na din naman and mas mura parin if I go there(and back) kesa sa visa processing fee sa agencies for all of us.

Thanks, sis! Hoping for the best!

Wala na nga tumatanggap na kahit anong agency if 1month na lang. Tinulungan din kami maghanap nung agency na nagbenta ng cruise tickets namin e.
