I am a US service member (O-1), and I want to invite my girlfriend in the Philippines to come to Korea on a tourist visa.
– What documents or information should I bring to the Philippine Embassy in Itaewon?
– What documents or information does she need to submit at the Korean Embassy in Manila?
– May I go on a weekend or fill out the documents ahead of time and have someone else submit them during the week?
If I do the invitation ahead of time, what exactly should I submit?
If it matters, she’s been to Korea twice: the first time on an “entertainment” visa and the second time on a factory-worker visa.
Camp Casey Housing lets you check out rooms for guests for an indefinite period of time, and I can cover her plane tickets. What else would they need to know?
Requirement Documents for Tourist’s Visa to Korea for Philippine passport holders:
Korean Embassy in Metro Manila
1. Application form (available at website or at the embassy)
2. One passport size colored picture
3. Passport Original
4. Passport photocopy of First Page (valid 6mos)
5. Copy of U.S., New Zealand, Japan, Australia, Korea, and Canada Visa (if available)
6. Employment Certificate (Original) –
7. Personal Bank Certificate(Original) –
8. ITR (Income Tax Return) (photocopy) –
* If Personally invited to Korea: Original Invitation Letter in Korea & photocopy of the Invitor’s Passport, Although I heard only Korean citizens can invite (thru INVITATION LETTER) .
** Others who don’t have all the required documents (like students, dependents) submit their parents or husband’s documents.
I’m not sure if you need to go to the Philippine Embassy(open on Sundays but expect long lines of Filipino workers in Korea) , but other (US)servicemen with Filipina wives go to the Immigration to apply for a visa for their wives. The immigration will then give them numbers which the Filipina wife will show to the Korean Embassy in Manila to get her visa stamp.
