If South Korean wants to visit Kuwait, they are no longer required to go to the embassy for a tourism or business visa. More than 50 nationalities including South Korean can apply through the internet, thanks to iVisa. The evisa will be sent via email within 12 hours.
South Korean needs to check if they are qualified prior to application. It can be accomplished through iVisa’s website by clicking on the Visa Checker. Simply follow the instructions to find out right away. You can apply as soon as you found out that you are eligible.
What are the requirements?
iVisa will request some information and documentation to process your application. You only need to provide few documents prior the application process. Here is a list of requirements for South Korean:
Valid passport – chances are you already have one. Please do check its expiry date to make sure that is still valid.
Digital copy of your passport – the most important part is the information page, but you should go ahead and scan the entire booklet.
Valid e-mail address – electronic visas are linked to passports digitally, and so will the visa provided by iVisa. Still, you need to print out a copy before departure, which is why iVisa will send you one via e-mail in PDF format.
GCC residence card – this applies only to applicants from the other countries that are a part of Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.) At the same time, the applicants from the GCC must work in specific fields. You can find all of them on iVisa’s website.
- Mode of payment – before submitting the application, you will be asked to pay the service fee using a credit/debit card or a PayPal account.
How to apply?
There is no need for South Korean to print out and fill in the form by hand because iVisa uses an online form. Within 10 minutes, you can complete everything. Additionally, iVisa has an superb customer support that can take your call anytime and if you need any help with completing the steps
The first step is inputting your personal information just like with any other form. You will also need to select the processing time and decide the time it will take for you to receive your visa. As expected, the fee is higher if you want it faster. As for that, iVisa gives you three selections:
Standard processing – you can go for this option if you are in no hurry. It takes three business days for your application to be processed for just $20.
Rush processing– for $60, this option will have your visa ready in just 2 business days.
- Super rush processing – if you want to be on a plane to Kuwait on the next day, you can select this option. Your application will be processed within just 12 hours for $80.
Take into consideration that Kuwait’s weekend differs from most countries. Their weekends are on Fridays and Saturdays, so South Korean should take that into consideration when applying.
You need to review all the information and make the payment in second step. It is crucial to fill in the form as accurately as possible. Corrections are impossible to make after your application is processed.
The third phase is uploading some documents like the ones mentioned. As case to case basis, South Korean may be asked to provide additional documents.
As you can see, getting a Kuwait electronic visa is super easy. The document is valid for only 30 days, so you need to leave for Kuwait before the 30-day period expires. Also, South Korean are allowed to stay in Kuwait for maximum 90 days and have a single entry.
