How to Check South Korea Visa Application Status for Tourist (C-3-9)

First, congratulations on your South Korea visa application! Lol. If you are like us ~ first timers ~, we had so much emotions in applying for this visa since it’s for our baby boy’s 2nd birthday. Like so many questions!

  • What is the minimum bank balance for South Korean Visa?
  • Where can I check my Korean visa application status?
  • How long does it take to process Korean tourist visa?

Can we be approved if Ryan will sponsor us (since our business is named after him)? Is it okay since we didn’t pass our cover letter? And so many more! But then we are traveling as a family so hoping for the best!

We applied last July 25 and our claim stub shows August 1 for the pick up. Anyway, here’s how you can check the status of your South Korea Visa Application. Usually, it takes about 7 days for a Korean visa to be approved if you had an online appointment.

If you are also looking for a hotel in South Korea, you may want to check Klook’s list of Hotels. Since we’ve been traveling with Levi, we’ve been fond of using the Klook app! Very user friendly and affordable!
