Therefore, when entering an address, you can easily search by entering the five-digit postal code and the address of the street name in English (excluding building numbers/special symbols). 

Q
ETA Application Method If you apply for ETA, the payment cannot be made.
A

1. If the payment window does not appear even though you clicked the payment button, please check if the pub-up blocking function of your Internet browser is turned off. (It is recommended to use Chrome because Safari sometimes does not work.)

 

2. If the payment window appears, enter your card number, and the payment is not completed, please check the message that appears after the payment. An error usually occurs when you use a card that does not match the card number or is not available card.

 

If you do not meet the above, please contact KORETA.
