How to check the status of your Korean Visa Application

Applying for a Korean visa can be nerve wracking. Even if you have tracked your application through the mail, once it arrives at the embassy or consulate, there is black hole of wonder on where your visa is, in relation to the application process.

Well, wonder no more! At visa.go.kr you can search the status of your visa by providing simple information you submitted on your application.

    Hi ☺ I would like to ask something. Is the korean visa portal (visa.go.kr) accurate?

    I checked my status online, and my Application status is Approved.

    Thanks!

      Hello! As far as I know, the information provided on the visa.go.kr website is accurate insofar as it comes directly from some sort of government databae which auto updates the status. I don’t personally know the inner workings of the website but I assume that everything (including the status you see) is accurate and up to date. Good luck and thanks for your question!

    Hi 🙂 i submitted my visa application on Monday and now is Thursday and my status is still “Under Review” , should i be concern? I got a receipt the date I submitted all my documents and it tells me to pick up my passport next Monday. Thanks

      I would not be concerned. I think message you received is a tentative expected pick up date whereas the status on the ebsite is the real time processing of your visa. Your visa application is currently under review but I would expect that if things run as they should, then you can pick it up on the designated pick up date 🙂

    Hey I just wanna say thanks a lot for this information. The visa website is so incredibly confusing that I would have never figured out what options to choose and how to type my name in. Thanks again!
