The restriction on the number of K-ETA applications due to repetitive application

KORETA Number of views 0 2022.09.22

The assessment time for K-ETA is currently being delayed due to applicants who are making multiple applications for K-ETA.



In order to prevent unfavorable circumstances to other applicants caused by this delay, applications for K-ETA of more than 3 times in the last 6 months will be blocked.

(The system will apply this policy from 11AM, July 12, 2022)



If you applied for your K-ETA 3 times within 6 months, the re-application can be done after 6 months from the date of the first application was submitted.


※ (Example) If your first K-ETA application was submitted on April 1, 2022 and you have applied 3 times until September 30, 2022, you can re-apply for K-ETA from October 1, 2022 onward.


However, in case you made a simple mistake on your application, such as a personal information typo, this will not count as valid for blocking your application.


Kindly be informed of the above, and be careful not to be at disadvantage.


Should you wish to enter Korea during the period of your K-ETA application blocking, please visit the Korean embassy (consulate) of your residence and apply for a visa.
