Korea Launches Online Application for Re-Entry Certificate


Dear valued AMCHAM members,

As previously notified on May 29, following discussions with AMCHAM, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) agreed to launch an online application system so that foreign residents of Korea can easily obtain re-entry permits when traveling abroad.

Starting today, June 22, travelers are able to file an application for a re-entry permit online through the Hi Korea website. The application fee is discounted by 20% (from KRW 30,000 to 24,000) when filing online. Applications must be made BEFORE leaving the country.

Please see the attached document for instructions on filing an application online.

AMCHAM will continue its close dialogue with the Korean government to further alleviate restrictions on travel by foreign residents of Korea. Please contact the AMCHAM Government & Corporate Affairs Team (govcorp@amchamkorea.org, 02.6201.2240) should you have any questions.

Thank you.
