Passport and Visa Requirements

Any foreign visitor wishing to enter the Republic of Korea should have a valid passport. Unless your country is under Visa Waiver Agreement with Korea, you are also required to obtain a Korean visa before entering.

We strongly recommend you to consult your local Korean embassy or travel agency.

For more information, please visit Korea Visa Portal or Korea Immigration Service website

Should you need a visa, please apply for it at least 2 months prior to your intended travel date (the sooner, the better).

If you need entry visa to participate “AQIS 2023 Seoul”, please fill out the red-color-indicated part of the form provided below and send it to “aqis2023(at)“. 
After getting an invitation letter from KIAS, you can go to a nearest Korean Consulate for C31 visa (short term visit for conferences).
