Effective from February 1, 2024, to December 31, 2024, this new policy primarily benefits elected politicians, government officials, professional license holders, and BDO Gold or Elite credit card holders, including their immediate family members.

Eligible Applicants

Eligibility extends to prominent figures such as members of the Senate, Congress, and local government leaders, alongside government officials holding significant ranks. Additionally, professionals with a valid PRC license in critical fields and credit cardholders stand to gain from this streamlined process.

Policy Benefits 

This simplification entails exemptions from submitting financial documents like bank certificates and income tax returns, although other necessary documents remain requisite. This move is designed to facilitate a smoother and more efficient visa application experience for Filipinos holding crucial roles in society and professional spheres.

Operational Enhancements at KVAC 

Complementing this policy, the Korean Visa Application Center(KVAC) in Taguig City has introduced operational improvements to aid applicants further. These include direct access to the application floor and an earlier opening of the waiting area, enhancing convenience and comfort for all visa applicants.

This strategic initiative by the Korean Embassy reflects a commitment to fostering stronger ties between Korea and the Philippines, recognizing the contribution of Filipino professionals and officials to their respective domains. 

While financial document exemptions are offered to eligible groups, the embassy underscores the importance of adhering to all other documentation requirements, ensuring a secure and comprehensive visa application process.
