KVAC VISA APPLICATION PROCESSING TIME
The general visa processing time takes 14 working days from the date when you submit all the required documents to our KVAC team. However, please note that if an applicant fails to provide all mandatory documents or necessary information, the processing time may be delayed.
During peak season, which varies depending on the country and the specific KVAC office, the processing time may take longer.
Generally, the peak seasons are during the summer (June to August) and winter (December to February).
Please make sure to plan in advance for the visa application submission for your timely departure. Your flight schedule will not be considered to make your visa processing time short.
Please be informed that submission of documentation to the KVAC in London in person at the Center is temporarily suspended. The KVAC London will only receive applicants for passport pick-up after the visa decision is made by the ROK Embassy in Berlin. For inquiries, please contact KVAC London via phone at +44-02078116098 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your understanding.

INTERNATIONAL POST IS NOT ACCEPTABLE
As part of the visa application process, it is required for the applicant to be physically present in the country where they are applying.

Please note that KVAC does not accept visa applications that are mailed or submitted from outside of the country.
PHISHING SITE WARNING
- We would like to bring to your attention the presence of fraudulent visa agency websites that claim to be official sites for entering Korea. These fraudulent sites impersonate the government of the Republic of Korea and demand large sums of money, often resulting in financial loss and other forms of fraud.
- We have recently identified a fraudulent website, koreaonlinevisa.com, k-eta.co that is impersonating the K-ETA portal. Please note that the official websites for visa applications are the Korea Visa Portal [ www.visa.go.kr], KVAC Europe Website [www.visaforkorea.eu], and K-ETA Portal [www.k-eta.go.kr].
