Travel agencies to handle all Korea visa applications from July 1 MANILA, Philippines — Filipinos who want to travel to South Korea to get a firsthand experience of Korean culture will no longer need to go to the Korean Embassy for tourist visas. Starting July 1, visa applications will be processed through designated travel agencies only, the Korean Embassy in Manila announced. This is due to the number of Korean visa applicants. In 2017, there were around 160,000 visa applicants compared to the 120,000 in 2016 and 90,000 in 2015. “This increase in number of visa applicants caused the applicants to stand in hot weather outside the embassy for hours to wait in line for their turn to apply for respective visa,” the Korean Embassy said. The embassy, however, will allow walk-in applicants only for spouses and children of Koreans, holders of visa issuance number, government employees with official business trips and for those with humanitarian reasons for urgent travel to Korea. Filipinos' interest in visiting South Korea is a result of the Hallyu craze or the Korean wave. This can be attributed to the rise in popularity of K-pop and K-dramas in the country. Here is the list of the 35 travel agencies designated to process temporary visitor’s visa application: Come on Phils. Golf and Travel Agency Inc.

Excellent Ideas About Travel That Are Easy To Understand
Whether the main point of your travel is business or pleasure, proper planning makes it more enjoyable. Just plan your trip well, and it should be enjoyable. Before going on your trip, verify you have your passport and any other necessary documents to ensure an enjoyable time.
Don't use the public computers in your hotel or anywhere else they offer free internet while you are on vacation. You may unwittingly allow others access to your financial and other data.
When traveling, keep the bags light by just bringing the essentials. The less stuff you have, the better your chances of being able to keep an eye on everything. Limit the number of shoes you bring along since they are usually the biggest and heaviest items people carry with them.
When you are going to some type of attraction, print online tickets in advance. Although you may pay a service fee for this option, it is worth it to bypass long lines for entrance to the park. For big attractions that have timed entry available, you can use that, too, to get you in faster.
Before booking, do some research. Look at different websites with reviews about the place you want to travel to. Ask other people that have traveled there. Doing some research will make you more aware of what can be expected, and will also help you decide what activities to do once you are there.
Just keep in mind you will probably pay more and it doesn't really save that much space. Instead, try different space folding techniques for efficiently packing clothes. These tips and tricks can help you to create more space in your bag as you pack.
If you're planning a long car trip with kids, pack a few cookie sheets. You can use them to play cards or color in coloring books since they are flat. If your children are very young, bring along magnetic numbers and letters to provide an educational activity.
Auto rental companies usually require renters to be at least 25 years old, although some rent to drivers as young as 18. If you are younger than 25, you could have high rates and need a credit card. Some cities don't allow for the renting of cars to seniors. When you make your reservations, make sure you ask if they have any age restrictions.
If you tend to forget things in your hotel room when you are traveling, try writing down reminders to yourself on the mirror with a dry erase marker. Paper notes are easily lost, but the bathroom mirror cannot be ignored. You can easily clean the dry-erase marker with toilet paper, which makes this approach convenient and simple.
