Korean Visa
Foreign nationals entering Korea are required to have a valid passport and a Korean visa issued by the Korean embassy or consular offices in their country. However, citizens from many countries are now permitted visa-free entry for a limited period under certain conditions.
Visa Information
Visa Requirements Visa regulations depend on your nationality and country of origin. We strongly suggest that you contact your local Korean Embassy/Consulate for full and official instructions on the specific visa regulations and application procedures that apply to you. It is the responsibility of the participant to obtain a visa in advance if required.

Invitation Letter for Visa Application Upon your request via email, the Secretariat will send a personal invitation letter to participate in the meeting. This invitation is meant only to assist participants to raise travel funds or to obtain a visa and is not a commitment on the part of the organizers to provide any financial support. Applications for invitation letters must be received at least 30 days prior to the meeting.
Customs
All visitors who enter Korea must submit a written baggage declaration to a customs officer upon entry. If a passenger declares non-duty free articles voluntarily, the declared amount will be accepted and the clearance procedure will be expedited, unless the declared price of articles is questionable. More information about customs allowances and currency regulation can be found at the website below.
