Seoul, South Korea — The Korea Electronic Travel Authorization, or KOR-ETA(K-eta) is an electronic travel authorization to Korea.
Korea is well-known for K-Pop, K-Food, and K-Drama. As K-Culture is going viral throughout the globe each month, more and more people are looking to visit Korea this summer. The Korea Electronic Travel Authorization KOR-ETA(K-eta) system is a system that allows foreign visitors without a visa to obtain a KOR-ETA(K-eta) in advance and obtain a travel authorization online in advance so that they can travel to Korea conveniently.
Compared to traditional methods, Kor-eta is a much more convenient and easier way to get entry into Korea. One of the biggest advantages of Kor-eta is that, through a single application, the traveller can apply for himself, his family members, and friends. As long as the destination is the same, they don’t have to apply individually for k-eta to enter Korea. The application process is also much smoother than what can be carried out online using a PC or smart device. Before the applicant’s request for an electronic visa, he has the flexibility to modify it and resubmit it for approval. In general, if a traveler makes an error in their application more than three times, they cannot re-apply within six months.
Additionally, there was one incident a traveller experienced at the airport. The passport number applied to k-eta was written in English ‘O’ instead of the number ‘0’ which stopped him from boarding the flight. This traveller had to re-apply for the K-ETA and book another flight.
This is the reason kor-eta’s main target is to help the travellers get approved and fix any issues that might arise. User-friendly global checkout, a global user-friendly Internet environment, and friendly support are what make Kor-eta shine. They make sure all the applicants complete the application with the attached passport and correct any issues that may cause rejection before submitting it. Even if an incorrect photo or passport is attached to the application, the friendly support of Kor-eta will guide the applications to correct the mistakes and get all the approvals in one go.
