New Spousal Visa (F-2) Requirement for South Korea

F-2 is the spousal visa issued by the Korean government to spouses of Korean nationals. Here are the documents required when applying for the visa as of February 28, 2011:

Required documents for spousal visa:
1. Application form
2. One passport sized colored photo
3. Passport Original (6 months valid)
4. Copy of Passport First Page
5. NSO Marriage Certificate Original
6. Korean Marriage History Original (Within 3 months)
7. Original &Copy of Police Clearance or NBI (Within 3 months)
8. Original &Copy of CFO certificate
9. Original Medical Certificate of Filipino and Korean (Within 6 months)
– For Korean, should be issued by Hospital or Public Health Center. For Filipino, should be typewritten/computerized with Hospital letter head, contact number and Physician’s signature. Please check example of Physical Examination
10. Original Invitation Letter from Korean
(should be in a specific format as required by Embassy)
11. Guarantee Letter
(should be in a specific format as required by Embassy)
12. Korean Credit History Original
13. True Copy of Korean’s Financial Document
(ex. Land title, Property contract of lease, Bank Certificate, Property Tax, Income Tax Return, etc.)
14. Korean’s Police Clearance(Within 3months)
15. Korean’s Certificate for marriage Guidance Program

* Additional Document

* If you are introduced by agent legally registered under Korean Marriage Law
– Copy of Certificate of Business Registration
– Copy of Certificate of Insurance Saving Fund
– Copy of Personal Contract between Korean and Agency

* If you are introduced by relative or friend
– Copy of any valid ID or Passport

■ Processing time : 15 working days
Visa Fee : 1500Peso

The guarantee letter and invitation letter are in a format required by the Korean Embassy. I’ve attached them here:

Guarantee and Invitation Letters

The files are compressed in a zip file. You may use a file extractor like 7zip. The files are in the HWP or Hangeul Word Processor format. To view the files, you’ll need the Hangeul Viewer program.

A lot of the documents in the list were not required when I applied for the F-2 visa almost eight years ago. Aside from these documents, the Philippine government also requires that a Filipino married to a foreign national should attend the CFO seminar.

    Yikes, super-dami naman ng requirements. OK lang kung madali lang lakarin yung docs. Pero some of these requirements take time. Lalo na yung sa Philippines. The couples have to coordinate and plan for all of these things para maayos nila. Sa paglakad pa lang ng requirements parang litmus test na for the couples.

      HI! If you’re a Filipino citizen, you cannot file for a divorce in Korea. Your husband should be the one to divorce you. If his petition is granted and you eventually got divorced, you’ll need to report it to the Philippine Embassy. You’ll also have to file a petition before a judge in the Philippines.

      If you’re a naturalized Korean, you could file for a divorce. You’ll need to file for a divorce at the Family Court.

    Thanks for all the info..
    I got my F21 visa last June but I had to come back dito sa pinas after a month.
    I am planning to go back sa Korea after 8 months..
    Should i apply for F21 visa again?
    Are the requirements the same?
    Ano po yung F6 visa?I heard it’s the new F21 visa?
    Shoukd I apply for F6 visa instead?

      Hi Joy! As long as your F-2-1 visa is valid, you don’t need to apply for the visa again. You’re also exempted from re-entry permit as long as you don’t stay out of Korea for a year. Yung F-6 visa ay bagong spousal visa (which will replace F-2-1) pero hindi pa siya in-effect. Mga late 2011 daw iimplement.

          didnt u apply for alien card when u are in korea? if so, u dont need to apply for F2. But if u didnt, Im not so sure but I guess u need to re apply for F2 if u wanna go back to korea after 7mos. coz there is validation on it until 3mos lang…why don’t you call in the korean embassy for the clarification.. And dont worry I’ll try to ask someone about it:)

            hi Joy, I have a copy as well. I went to one of the accredited hospitals mentioned, actually it was one of the biggest hospital in the Philippines,however; I was referred by the internal medicine doctor to get the tests needed at a diagnostic center since it would took time before I could get the results from their hospital. Therefore, my medical certificate is still from the accredited hospital I’ve been to, the thing is that the result was came from a diagnostic center. I am quite bother about it, because the embassy might not allow it and it would result to denial of my visa. I’m praying though. 🙂

        hi Jessica, are u a Hepa B reactive carrier?Some wud refer that to Hepa B Healthy carrier kc walang symptoms.Depende yan sa ibang tests aside from HBS AG screening. ilang test ang ginawa sayo at saang clinic o hospital ka ngpatest? Try mo mgpa second opinion sa ibang doctors, they’ll advise you to have complete test like HBsAG,Anti-HBs, Anti-HBc, SGOT, SGPT, ALK Phosphatase and even Liver ultrasound. there are 2 types of Hepa B kse, one is Acute and d other is Chronic. Hepa B is contagious through contact with an infected person’s blood, semen, or other body fluid. But, You cannot get hepatitis B from shaking hands with an infected person, hugging an infected person or sitting next to an infected person. Alam ba ng husband mo na diagnosed ka wd Hepa B? From what i know, ur husband needs to sign a weaver that he’s informed na may hepa b ka and ur fit to travel abroad. yung hindi lng ata inaaccept are those who have Sexually Transmitted Diseases like AIDS. i know someone who has Hepa B and she’s already in Korea now.

          Hi Jessica, you better ask the internal medicine doctor sila ung mas nakakaalam regarding your situation. Meron ka bang doctor na nilapitan?, mas mainam kasi kung sa doctor ka muna lalapit before conducting the test, they are giving request kung ano ang dapat gawin sayo for the medical, pag nakuha mo ung result dapat ang mag discuss sayo ng result is the doctor who give you the request also. Iba kasi talaga ung kumukuha ng mga test dun sa doctor…. Sang hospital ka ba ngpunta?

            Sa Taguig Doctors Hospital po. . .nagpamedical lang ako dun tapos paka bigay ng result ang sabi kahit positive daw ako sa Hepa B binibigay pa rin nila result kasi embassy ang magdedecide kung iaaprove yung visa ko o hindi. kung gusto ko daw magpagamot sa kanila pwede din daw po kasi pag daw ok ung visa ko pwede din daw sa Korea n lang ako magpagamot. . .

            hi jing..
            di ko makita comments mo. you said we had the same situation which means u got your F21 visa noon pero bumalik ka kaagad ng Pilipinas? kelangan ipadala sayo ng husband mo lahat ng requirements na nakalagay sa taas. tapos ikaw na mag apply sa embassy.http://embassy_philippines.mofat.go.kr/english/as/embassy_philippines/visa/f61/index.jsp click mo lang yan na link para makita mo mga requirements parang ulit ka sa simula. Pero ako hindi na required yung husband ko sa Marriage Guidance Program kasi meron na siyang Permanent Visa dito sa Pinas kasi he lives here in the Phil foor more than 6years.

      Hello Chinny, when I got my NSO, I sent it directly to my husband in Korea. My husband and his friend was the one who translated it in hunggul, since it should be translated into hanggul. Then he submitted our NSO at their city hall. When he got our marriage history he had it notirized in Korea.

    Peachie, Where do you plan to marry, sa Korea ba or sa Philippines? if it’s here you can do it easily, as far as I know kasi wala namang fiance visa ang bound to Korea, tourist visa lang…. Regarding the agency, it is much better kung you do research and ask other people what to do, pag agency kasi malaki ang bayad…. I did all the things by myself and my husband through research and someone who knows about it… pwede ka nalang magtanong sa embassy what to do first…..

      Hi Mariane! Kung hindi naparehistro ng asawa mo ang anak ninyo, eh hindi siya Korean citizen. Mukhang inabandona ng asawa mo yung anak ninyo. Hindi ka naman makakakuha ng F-2 visa kung walang sponsor na asawa. So kung pupunta ka rito, tourist ang aplayan mong visa.

        Thanks Ms Betchay..^^ ahmm Ms Betchay when my hubby and I went to Korean embassy for him to get his legal capacity to marry, I asked the consul if it’s ok if I will be having my medical in the province, he said it’s fine, they will verify it nmn din. But I’m confuse since they give a list of accredited hospitals.

    Hello po Ms. Betchay,just wanna ask regarding my visa(F21).I went to korea last april 14,2011 pero bumalik ako sa pinas because we decided na mag divorce ng husband ko.so divorced kami sa korea last june 2011 at umuwi rin ako june 29,11 sa pinas.but still kasal parin kami sa pinas(we got married sa pinas).hindi ko ipinasa ung divorce paperfrom korea sa philippine embassy.And now,nagkabalikan kami ng husband ko.
    So plan namin na bumalik ako sa korea.
    Nakakuha ako nang allien card 1 yr ang expiration.
    pwede ko pa bang gamitin to and we will just register our marriage again sa korea?
    or do i really need to get a visa again?
    Thank you and hope to hear from you!

          Hi Tricia
          Well, I’m not sure about that. Korean embassy verified everything before they give you a visa, and they have their sets of qualifications if they will approve it or not.

      yung authentication mkukuha mo agad kc tatatakan lng nmn nila yun.pg nag apply ka ng f21 visa, 15 days yun. pero pg tumama sa holiday jan sa pinas, maeextend ang releasing date ng visa mo. dapat kumpleto lahat ng docs mo, meron kc na kahit kumpleto na, may nirerequire pa rin silang other docs, depende sa mga sinubmit mo.

      It depends kung anong day ma fall ang application mo.Yup 15 working days exclude Saturday,Sunday and holidays.So say for example,nag apply ka nung Oct.7(that’s Friday),you can get your visa most likely by Oct.28.Don’t worry,upon acceptance of your application,they will give you the claim stub which states the releasing date of your documents.

        Hi MJ,

        I just want to ask..kse db nkapunta kna sa Korea by having an F2-1 visa before. So your applying again right? Kse just want to share my experience..I applied for my marriage visa a couple of weeks ago. By that time complete n tlga requirements ko. Pero nong npunta ako sa Window 2, hindi nya chicheck ng mabuti yung mga requirements, may kulang pa daw ako. Since I already went to Korean twice, I can read na rin Korean translation. Tumawag muna ako sa husband ko then bumalik ulit ako sa knya..inisa isa ko sa knya lhat ng sinabi nya na wala ako. So ok na..then suddenly hiningan ako ng land title..i told her na wla kmeng land title since ngrerent lng kme doon ng husband ko..meron nmn akong bank certificate and company certificate ng husband ko. Mejo tumaas na yung boses nya pero ako ngeexplain pa rin ako ng side ko..then biglang sabi nya hindi nmn daw cia yung mgdedecide kng makakakuha ako ng visa kung hindi yung consul. Sabi ko na lng Thank you ~~..Then to my surprise inaccept nya yung application ko and binigyan ako ng releasing date. hehe..Well, i said it to my husband and he told me na yung mga korean mahilig tlga mgtest kung tlgang alam ko yung mga details about my husband. Since mrame ciang tinanong nsagot ko nmn lhat kya inaccept nya na. Well, hopefull I could get a visa na rin. I will tell you pag nkuha ko. ~~

Marame din kse akong narinig na hindi tlaga tinatanggap yung mga applications nila pag kulang yung papers nila. Basta handa ka lng if tinanong ka nya. Just be honest lng. E kung wla ka nmn tlgang mapprovide na gnun why worried db? Just explain it to her.

I believe mkakapagapply ka ulit. Mejo intimidating lng kse pag nagapply sa korean embassy. Basta be ready lng sa lahat ng mga questions nila. Here is my email add, if you have any question pa..oline_buts@yahoo.com..

          Hi Chinny,

          Sorry for jumping here but i would totally agree with you, the korean at the window 2 is scary indeed. My husband was the one who processed my F21 visa and not me, while he was in embassy he was told that i was lacking of 1 medical test. When my husband arrived in Cebu i was totally stress bcoz i know i took all the test i even confirmed it to my doctor. So the following day, i called her and explain well to her everything that i already took the exam and i asked her to check the results thoroughly. Ayun, thanks God nman..she said sorry and she said to just wait for the releasing date. Because of that, waiting for 15days wasnt easy for me, I was too nervous i would get denied and my baby and my hubby would have to leave me in Phil, hehe! So my point is that if they would return your documents without saying anything, you need to ask why and explain to them well. I arrive here in Korea last July.

    That’s it. Pag complete mo na sa CFO and mga requirements for visa application. Pwede ka na punta sa Korean Embassy for Visa Application.

    * Visa application is Monday-Friday 9AM-11PM ONLY!
    -yan ang nakalagay sa Korean Embassy

    and then they will give you a claim stub. dun nakalagay ung releasing date ng visa.

    * 15 working days pero ndi kasama ang Saturday and Sunday and Holiday. ^^

      Hello there Jonah!

      Its daisy,Just wanna asked, ikaw lang ang nag asikaso sa lahat ng papers mo? No need to get agency for assistance.
      Asked ko rin po na ang first step talaga ay kung makuha mu na marriage license Contract mo from NSO, kailan mu yang e padala sa hubby mu duon sa South Korea para authentication sa civil
      registry nila. Mga ilang weeks kaya yan mabalik sayo.
      I really need ideas right now.
      Thanks and God BLess!

        Hi Daisy,

        Yes, aq lng po nag-ackaso ng papers q.. Ndi na need ng agency.. Kahit ikaw kaya mong ackasuhin and then sure ka pa na ndi peke lahat ng documents na ipapasa mo.. Ung saken po kc, talagang hinintay q muna ung NSO marriage certificate nmen before aq nag-ackaso ng iba pang documents.. Mas maganda 2 copies na ung hiningi mo sa NSO para ung isa ipapadala mo na sa hubby mo and then ung isa eh sau para sa pag-aackaso mo d2.. 2-3 days po ung pagpapadala ng documents.. sa DHL po eh 950 above.. depende sa location ng hubby mo sa South Korean.. pag province, mas mahal lalo na pag malayo ung DHL sa kanila.. aabutin minsan ng 2000+.. Ipaparegister nya dun and then kuha xa ng marriage certificate nyo dun sa Korea and then Family Census and Cetificate of Family Relation.. mas maganda na kumpletuhin nadn nya lahat ng mga documents na kailangan para sa visa application para isang padala nlang..

    Hi Jonah,

    Pagpassport lang binigay sa yo… most likely may visa ka. Pero pagmay-binigay na piece of paper sa yo, DECLINED yun. Nakalagay dun yung mga reasons why di ka binigyan ng visa.

    Nakuha ko yung F21 ko nung 24 Oct. mga 530pm na yta. May pinasagutan sa akin, tapos naghintay pa ako sa interview ng consul.

    Ako yung huling binigyan ng visa nung araw na yon. Nagulat nga ako ksi may interview pa.

    Have faith and I am sure you’ll get your f21 visa. God bless!

        Sorry now lang ako nakareply. Nakuha mo ba yung visa mo?

        Yung sa akin, di na ako tinanong masyado kasi nasagutan ko naman yung mga questions.

        Siguro nakatulong na kinasal kmi sa Seoul, 4 times na pumunta sa Korea in a span of 1 year. At dala ko yung church wedding photos… kaya ang bilis lang ng interview ko. Ang matagal lang yung paghihintay, pero worth it naman.

Hmmm.. ung “First Endorsememt”.. di ba after ng kasal ung marriage certificate ipapasa or ipapafile sa municpyo kung saan ikinasal.. tas nung nagpafile aq sa municpyo, sbi q gusto q makakuha agad ng NSO marriage certificate.. un ang ginawa sa marriage certificate namen.. pina”First Endorsement”.. kc pag pina “First Endorsement”, after 15 days ipapadala na ung NSO marriage certificate.. kukunin mo nalang sa muncpyo kung san kau kinasal at saan kau nagfile..

            ung possible question is about you and your hubby lng nman.. Sa CFO, pagpunta mo kc dun paparegister ka tas may info sheet ka na sasagutan and then ipapasa nyo un and then may orientation kau.. after ng orientation, isa-isa kaung tatawagin.. may itatanong lang about senyo ni hubby and then bibigyan ka ng maliit na paper tas nakalagay dun kung kelan ka nakasched for 2 day seminar and then meron nadn nakalagay na mga requirements na kailangang ipasa sa kanila after ng seminar.. if nakumpleto mo na un, pwede mo na isubmit sa kanila yung mga documents na un and then makukuha mo na ung 2 certificate.. and then pag nakuha mo na ang visa mo, balik ka ulit sa kanila for CFO sticker na.

    Hi Jonah,

    Sorry for the late reply. Congrats!

    Kinasal kasi ako sa Seoul, wla rin couple interview. Di na pumunta si hubby sa MLA. Kaya siguro ako nagfill -out ng interview questions.
    Tapos, may interview with the consul…sya rin nag-approve ng visa ko on the spot.

    FYI:
    Meron ako nakasabay na deny yta sya, 2nd time na nya nag apply ng f21 visa.

    Parehas yta na declined… kasi di nya masagot yung mga questions. At peke yung wedding photos na sinubmit nya.

    Kung may couple interview, di mo na yta kailangan nung magfill out ng questions and interview with the consul.

    Hi MJ,

    Depende yta, kasi yung case ko… We got married in Seoul. Bumalik lang ako ng PINAS para ayusin yung visa ko. Sabi kasi ng IMMIGRATION sa Mokdong..kailangan umuwi ako para sa F21 visa.
    Kung buntis sana ako, bibigyan ako ng F21 visa. Kaya lang hindi pa ako buntis nung nag-apply ako.

    Ang alam ko pag may couple interview di na kailangan magfill out ng interview questions and interview with Consul.

    Pero kung may questions sila sa application ng visa mo, mag fill out ka ng interview questions and interview with Consul.

    Ako kasi walang couple interview, nagsubmit lang ako ng requirements, tapos binigyan na ako ng paper after 15 days bumalik daw ako to get my visa. Di na rin pinapunta si hubby. Yung case yta namin rare.

    Kasi ang alam ko dapat umuwi yung husband for couple interview. God is good.. kasi malapit lang sa amin yung immigration office sa MOKDONg… so di na pinauwi si hubby sa PINAS.

    FYI:
    1.yung nadeny tapos magre-apply ..sigurado ako magfill out ka ng interview questions and interview with consul

    2. pag may nakita sla na discrepancies sa requirements mo like yung marriage certificate… you will need to fill-out some interview questions and interview with consul

    3. pag naglie yung husband mo about his financial background,criminal records etc… kasi ang alam ko nagbackground check sla..pumupunta sa house sa Korea.

    Hi Jonah,

    basta complete ang requirements mo, walang fake approve ka na. wla na interview with the consul.

    pero marami nadedeny dahil sa problem sa medical.. pag weak ang lungs, may hepa or may ibang sakit.

    mahigpit na sila.. kasi marami domestic violence tapos maraming Koreans di nagsasabi ng totoo sa spouses nla.

    Sinasabi nila engineer,businessman etc . pero farmer pla.
    Meron naman, di pa dumarating yung Korean kasal na sa PINAS… alam mo naman sa PINAS basta magbayad ka may marriage cert ka na.

        okay.. i’ll send you message in your email.. Hmmm.. i think, call ka muna sa city hall kung pwede kamo pahabol para sure ka kung pwede para di ka maxado mapagod.. if di pwede, pag nakuha mo na ung NSO marriage certificate mo, kuha ka nlang ng NSO marriage certificate online.. bayad ka nlang sa bank and then isesend nman na un sa bahay nyo within 3 days.. ^^

          Hi medz, i send you message in your email.. Hmmm.. btw, advise q lng po na mas maganda kumuha ng 2 copies ng original NSO marriage certificate para po ung isa ipapada kay hubby para maaus nadn po nya dun ung mga kelangang documents nyo at the same tym, nag-aaus nadn po kau d2 ng mga kailangang aucn.. kc po ipapasa ng hubby nyo dn un sa Korea.. Hmmmm.. yes po, okay lng po na magstart na kau magseminar for CFO and then kung ala pa po kaung NBI, kuha nadn po kau kc po kelangan po un at ndi po police clearance kundi NBI.. sa NBI po kc pag may kapangalan ka, ndi sau maibibigay ung NBI mo at the same day ng pagkuha mo ng NBI kundi papabalikin ka pa ng ilang days.. i think after 10 days pa before mo makuha ung NBI.. kaya mas maaga mas maganda.. and then pamedical na po kau..

          Hi Medz,

          pag nakapagseminar ka na sa CFO, before mo makuha ung 2 certificate, may ibibigay clang list of requirements na kailangan mong ipasa para makuha mo na ung 2 certificate..

          Requirement List:
          1. Family Census – Certificate of Marriage Relation translated in English authenticated by Korean Embassy
          2. Legal Capacity / Proof of Singleness
          3. Photocopy of husband’s passport with proof of Arrival and Departure in the Philippines
          4. Original / Photocopy of MC/BC/NBI
          5. Photocopy of Marriage License + Notice & Application
          6. Wedding Pictures with Solemnizing Officer & Parents

          ung #1, yan po ung isa sa mga documents na kailangang ipadala ni hubby sau.. pagnafile na nya dun ung NSO marriage certificate nyo sa Korea, makakakuha po xa nyan.. and then pag napadala na sau ni hubby yan, kelangan mong ipaauthenticate yan sa Korean Embassy and then ipaxerox and then ung xerox lng ung ipapasa sa CFO.. sa seminar sa CFO, magpapakita cla dun ng sample copy ng mga yan.. ^^

    hi there wish someone can answer my question.
    i got my spouse visa last March 2009 i only stayed for a couple of days and my husband and i went back here in the Philippines..
    now, i wud like to ask on how will i renew my spouse visa?
    or do i still need to comply all those requirements and go back from the start? since in my first application i already gave my original certificate from CFO? thanks

      Hi Jessica,

      I think you better call Korean Embassy for that.. but i think your visa is still okay.. and you don’t need to go back from the start of visa processing.. BUT its better to be sure.. Call Korean Embassy about your situation.. God Bless!! ^^

      Hi Claire,

      kung magpapakasal po kau by January, kelangan nyo po muna kumuha ng LEGAL CAPACITY ng hubby nyo po sa Korean Embassy kc po requirement po yon sa pag-aaply for marriage license bago kau magpakasal..

      ung CFO po (Commission on Filipinos Overseas) dun po kau magseseminar pagkatapos nyo pong ikasal and makuha ung NSO marriage certificate nyo.. isa po un sa mga requirements sa visa application..

    i just want to ask. i have f21 visa. kagagaling ko lang ng korea last nov. 20. i already have a ticket going back to korea by dec. 25. kaso ang nakalagay sa visa entry ko S. hindi ko kasi napansin yun nung una kong makuha yung visa ko kaya hindi ako nag-apply ng Alien Registration Card sa korea. hindi kaya yun maquestion? hindi ba dapat multiple entry yung nakalagay dun para makabalik ulit ako ng korea?

            ang hirap pa naman mag ayos ng requirements lalo na pag malayo ka pa. naka 2 beses pa ko pumunta sa embassy sa pag apply ng visa kasi hiningan ako certificate of employment ni husband. wala naman nakalagay dun sa requirements.

      Take note lang Ping na kailan talaga na ang invitation at guarantee letter I hand written ng husband mo. Kasi yon ang required ng embassy. Pero kung yong Guarantee letter mo ay computerize kailan mu pang e papa notarize yon bago e submit.

      Take care and God bless us all!

      Hi Joy, ang alam q about sa F6 visa is kelangan mong pumunta sa immigration office kung san mo po kinuha ung alien registration card mo and then nirerequire nila na umattend ng 3 hours seminar program.. un lng po.. Hehe.. i don’t know lng po kung sa pag renew nlang ng alien registration card magpapalit to F6 or anytime pwede.. ung F2 kc for 1 year and then ung F6 is 2 years..

    Hi need your help guys. I’m from Davao. I’m reapplying for a spouse visa. Just got confuse by the Physical Examination. Kasi it stated in the requirements that any hospital will do as long as it has a contact number and the physicians signature. But as i read your blogs parang meron accredited hospitals lang ang embassy na dapat dun ako mag pa medical. I’m from Davao and i need to fix my days of stay in manila. Salamat

      Thank you so much Ms.Peachie for the response. I understand. Maybe sa Manila nalang talaga ako papamedical para mas sigurado. I have another concern pag nakuha ko na po visa ko kelangan talaga ako mag claim or pwd representative nalang with my claimstub kasi saying PAMASAHE ko airplane. Tsaka merino na ako sticker sa CFO pag ba apply ulit pag my visa na ako ulit do I still need to get a new sticker from CFO or the old one will do na? Salamat.

        Hi Jessica, about sa pagkuha ng visa.. mas okay kung ikaw ang kukuha and then dalhin mo padn ung mga important na papers kc minsan sa pagkuha may hinihingi pa na ibang documents.. or tell your husband to call the korean embassy ilang days before mo kunin ung visa mo.. kc ganun ginawa ng asawa q.. tumawag xa dun para iconfirm ung status ng visa q.. and nalaman na nmen agad na approved na ang visa q.. kaya di na aq kinabahan nung nagpunta aq dun.. ^^

            Hi Ms. Jessica, yes.. may mga nadedenied dn.. nung pagkuha q ng visa q.. halos karamihan nadenied.. ung kasama q nun sa cfo seminar nakasabay q sa pagkuha ng visa.. di nya nakuha ung visa nya ang sabi sa kanya, tatawagan nlang daw ulit xa.. tas meron naman, hinihingan pa ng ibang supporting documents.. and may ilan ding nagsasabi na depende dn daw un sa papers ng korean spouse.. kung nabigyan kna ng visa before.. in my opinion, mas malaki ang chance na mabigyan ka.. Just keep on praying.. God bless! ^^

      Hi AIsa, mostly wala na interview sa embassy during your application. You only have to comply all the requirements stated above. It will more efficient if your husband will going to call the embassy. Kasi karamihan sa requirements eh from your husband. sa CFO punta ka lang sa Quirino. Open sila Monday to friday. 2 days yung seminar. this are the requirements to get an CFO certificate;
      1. Two (2) valid identification cards (IDs) with photograph;
      2. Duly completed guidance and counseling form;
      If married, certified true copy and photocopy of marriage contract on security paper from the National Statistics Office, or Local Civil Registry Offices; or original and photocopy of marriage contract duly authenticated by the Philippine Embassy/ Consulate (if married abroad)
      Other documents as may be required by the counselors; and
      3.Payment of P400.00 counseling fee.
      4. Family Census – Certificate of Marriage Relation translated in English authenticated by Korean Embassy
      5. Legal Capacity / Proof of Singleness
      6. Photocopy of husband’s passport with proof of Arrival and Departure in the Philippines
      7. Original / Photocopy of MC/BC/NBI
      8. Photocopy of Marriage License + Notice & Application

          as far as i know during the submission there is no interview, as long as your documents are complete. Sa pag claim daw meron pahabol na interview but its case to case basis. Meaning it depends sa case mo if wala na follow up questions ang consul. But it will be best if pagkuha mo ng iyong visa eh magdala ka ng supporting documents.

      Hi bean! Kung nagbayad ka ng fine, three years ang ban. Pero kung married ka na, mas mabuting magtanong sa Embassy at i-process na ang application mo. May nakasabay ako noon, mga 9 years ago na TNT tapos nahuli tapos umuwi sa Pinas at pinakasalan ng Korean. Nakapag-apply siya agad ng visa pero tourist visa ang binigay sa kanya. Pero 9 years ago pa yun ha. So mas maganda na itanong sa Embassy.

      Hi Antonio! Kailangan kang i-divorce ng wife mo. Pag tapos na kasal ninyo, tapos na rin ang visa mo so dapat umuwi ka na. Ang paraan lang para makapag-stay ka ay pag nag-change ka ng citizenship, pero kailangan kang i-sponsor ng wife mo.

    Ms. Betchay,Good afternoon. Tanong ko lang po kapag kasal na sa Korean, ano na po ba dapat gamitin na apelyedo sa passport? apelyedo na ba ng husband? o puwede pa din po yung apelyedo sa pag kadalaga? Thanks po….

      Hi Jin! Yung apelyido mo… hindi tradisyon sa Korea ang mag-change ng name so gamitin mo ang apelyido mo. Later on, if you change your citizenship you could decide on changing your name to a Korean one.

      Pwedeng hindi mo palitan ang passport mo.

      Hi kris! depende sa expiration ng visa mo… pero dapat kasi enter ka ng korea within 3 months na nabigyan ka ng visa… so kung hindi, apply ka uli ng visa…

    Hello …. korean embassy in the philippines does not have any accredited hospital for the medical or physical examinations. i have been asking around doctors and hospitals and they all said that the korean embassy’s medical check list is so vague. unlike in US, CA and AUS embassies they have an accredited hospitals and it’s easy for the spouse visa applicant to secure that requirement, but with the Korean embassy there is none. maybe guys you can help me on this and can share with me which hospital you went to for this physical examination requirement.

    thank you. =)

      Hi Juvy! It’s best to have your documents red ribboned. Also, have your college diploma and transcript of records notarized by the DFA. Para pagpunta mo ng Korea wala nang aalalahanin pa. As for the CFO, visit http://www.cfo.gov.ph for info on where the seminar is held.

      Hi Lyn! It’s possible to get married in Korea but you’ll still have to go back to the Philippines to have your visa processed.

    Hello,
    I just want to ask to Miss Betchay.
    Ma’m, nag apply po ako ng F2, naisubmit ko na po lahat ng requirements ko sa embassy. Then binigyan nila ako ng schedule for the temporarily release of my visa dated January 17, 2013. When I went there at the embassy I thought that would release me my visa.. instead they invited me to go inside the room together with the 2 applicants of f2 also.. then a korean staff handed us a paper to be filled up. Those are 2 pages of questions regarding the information of my husband and how well we know each other.. then after answering those questions, I went to a window 1 and the korean staff writing something at the back of my schedule slip saying “wait until we call”. until now they are not making calls on me.. I told my husband in korea to call the Korean embassy.. Instead he asked help from the korean immigration.. and immigration po ang nag kontak dito sa korean embassy at ang sabi daw po na to wait for 2 or 3 months para daw po sa interview ng immigration na gagawin sa husband ko.

    Bakit po ganoon katagal? sa palagay nyo po may problema po ba sa mga documents ko? may ganito ba talaga na nangyayari?

    I hope na matulungan nyo ako sa mga questions ko na masagot… Matagal na rin po ako dito sa pinas…

    hello po Ms. Betchay

    ask ko lang po if I would still need to apply for a spousal visa if my husband (he works and lives here in the Phil)and I will just go to Korea for one week to visit his family for Chuseok this September…

    could I just apply for a tourist visa instead? because I read that there is a 2 day CFO seminar and additional paperwork before applying for a spousal visa……

    or is it possible to apply for a visa as a housewife?I am currently not working because my husband advised me to take a break from work to focus on our new life together, and to allot more time for processing our papers and my visa, since we just got married this May ,I do hope that you could help me with this ^_^ thank you so much ^_^
