Visa information

Any foreign visitors wishing to enter the Republic of Korea must have a valid passport and, if necessary, obtain a Korean visa prior to entering Korea. However, some are permitted visa-free entry for a limited time under certain conditions. Nationals of those countries or regions with which Korea has signed a visa waiver agreement can enter without a visa, on the condition that they do not engage in remunerative activities during their stay.

Please contact the Korean Embassy or Consulate in your departure country for further details, and should you need any further assistance, please send an e-mail to the Korean secretariat (invitation@afdb2018.org).

Visa requirements for entry into Korea

  1. The invitation letter can be replaced by the Registration Confirmation Letter for persons who participate the 2018 African Development Group Annual Meetings only. However the confirmation letter does not guarantee that you will be granted a visa, nor does it commit to assist you in obtaining a visa.
  2. We DO NOT issue any guarantee letters nor notarized letters for any individuals.
  3. Visitors who are required to have a visa to enter Korea, are strongly recommended to process the application at least three weeks before departure from the country of origin.
