How to Apply for a Korean Visa as a Family

Last Updated on

We’ll travel to Korea as a family. Should we apply separately or at the same time? Does everyone have to be present during the visa application?

Personal appearance of all family members isn’t necessary.

Travel agencies accept visa applications filed by a representative for the whole family, as long as the documents are complete and sorted per applicant. Click here for the complete list of Korean visa requirements. 

When applying as a family, you have to submit proof of relationship such as birth certificate and/or marriage certificate. Provide one copy per family member.

For married couples, this means both husband and wife should have a copy of their marriage certificate. For parents, children, and siblings, each should have a copy of the birth certificate.
