South Korea Single Entry Visa Application (for Indonesian)

Image

As I am now planning my mid-year holiday to South Korea, I think there is no harm to share to you, fellow travellers (esp. Indonesian), some tricks to get your visa application to South Korea goes smoothly.

I personally taking care of my visa application by myself, with no help from travel agent. It is actually quite straightforward, given you submit all the required documents and have compelling balance in your bank’s account (IDR 20 mil is more than enough for a week visit).

Required Documents

Following are the required documents you need to submit:

  1. Get and fill Visa Application Form (http://idn.mofa.go.kr/worldlanguage/asia/idn/visa/step/index.jsp)
  2. 3.5 cm x 4.5 cm Close-up photo with white background
  3. Employment Letter
  4. Bank Account Statement (last 3 months)
  5. A copy of KTP, Kartu Keluarga, Akte Lahir, & Akte Kawin
  6. Original Passport
  7. A copy of your 1st page of passport and all pages contain visas from your last trips (including your old passport)
  8. Additional supporting documents: Your flight ticket and hotel booking

Submission 

All those documents above need to be submitted to South Korean Embassy at the following address:

Jl. Jendral Gatot Subroto Kav.57 Jakarta 12950 (Right before Medistra Hospital)
Tel : 62-21-2967-2555
Fax : 62-21-2967-2556/2557
Submission hours: 09:00-11:00

Per 2014, the application fee is IDR 480.000.

Collection

Upon submission, they will give you a phone number for you to check your application status. It approximately takes 5 days. Even so, you want to call them first to make sure that your visa application is done before you go all the way to the ‘always-macet’ Gatot Subroto area.

 

Quite easy, isn’t it? Happy travelling!

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MEMORY!

P.S.: Sanghiang Island is located in Sunda Strait, between Java Island and Sumatra Island. As shown in the picture below, Indonesian government has started to build a bridge connecting the two islands. Rest assured *cynically* that Sanghiang will lose its virginity once the bridge is built.
