BRB, booking a flight to SoKor.

In April 2019, the Korean Embassy announced that visa processing will increase from three days (frequent travelers) and five days (first-time travelers) to seven working days (for both). The number of days just kept increasing, which is understandable given that everyone just wants to visit Korea—and we totally get why.

If you're set on flying to SoKor in 2020, here's some good news for you: The Korean Embassy just announced that they have "allotted additional visa staff for faster processing of Korean visa applications."

By the end of February 2020, from the usual 25 to 27 days of waiting time, your visa will now be processed within 10 to 15 days. 

And because everyone wants to see those cherry blossoms in March or April, this period will be retained during peak season. 

But of course, if you're qualified to apply for the express visa, this might be a better option for you. It has a P1000 fee, but at least you'll get your visa application result in five working days.
