Which K-drama filming locations are you excited to visit?

Do you ever stare into space and think about the K-drama filming locations that you'll visit once you go to South Korea? How about the authentic Korean food you'll try and the K-beauty products you'll take home once you get there? Well, the long wait is over because SoKor will finally reopen its doors to Filipino tourists!

In an announcement last week, the South Korean Embassy in Manila confirmed that the application and issuance of all types of visa will resume on June 1, 2022. This includes the tourist visa or C-3-9, which states that an individual can stay in SoKor for up to 90 days for "tourism, transit, visiting relatives, or similar reasons."


The embassy also added that Submission of Consent for Isolation is no longer required, and multiple entry visas issued before April 5, 2020 may be used without re-application (as long as they haven't expired yet).

ICYMI, South Korea suspended tourist visa applications for more than two years and has only issued short-term visas for humanitarian reasons and government affairs. With the lifting of almost all COVID-19 protocols (such as the outdoor mask mandate), the country has decided to increase the number of international arrivals in order to "boost domestic consumption and invigorate related industries."
