    Awww, it’s great that your sisters will be able to visit you. I have friends who also came back from a trip to Korea this week. They all got the 59days visa, but one of them, not in the family got a 3years multiple entry. Lucky him. Envy much. 🙂 I hope to be able to make it to Korea next year, once Lee Joon Gi (Jun Ki) comes out from the military. LoL. 🙂

    tama ka miss betchay, i also invited my brother and he’s given a 59 day visa…ano po ung multiple entry na sinasabi ni des? kelan makakakuha ng ganoong visa? and extendable pa kaya ung 59 days na visa? kc 3 months ang nakuha ng kapatid ko na validity ng tiket nya..salamat sa info..

    hi miss betchay

    just wondering what to indicate in the invitation letter para mas madaling ma approve..and is it necessary ba na may work ang aswa? right now po kase wala work ang asawa ko and plan ko invite mom ko.just gave 2 months ago..thanks

    • Betchay says:

      Hi! Nung nag-apply ng visa mother ko, 2004, wala work ang asawa ko at wala rin akong work pero nabigyan naman siya ng visa. Mas madaling i-invite ang parents kesa sa siblings.

    Hello po! Just wanna ask if ever pumunta ako sa Korea with my 3-yr. old son, how much kya ang gagastusin namin? (VISA application, plane tickets, etc..) My nagsabi kc sa travel agency 20k pesos daw per head, is that too much? What if direct nalang bumili ng ticket sa airlines considering the promo fares.. My husband is working there, plan namin to spend the holidays with him. My visa fee ba if ever 2-3 weeks lang stay namin? Thanks much!

    so envious of your husband’s regular overseas trips! =) he must be lucky to see so many countries!

    • Betchay says:

      Hi elyoka! I envy him, too. He just got back from his trip to New Orleans last Monday. And he’s still raving about the place and the people.

    Hello Betchay, thanks for sharing this. I have a lot of friends in the Philippines migrating or working in Korea. Some of them are married to a Korean and some of them were able to visit or live in the country because they are working and living as an exchange student. This information you shared about inviting your relatives or friends to Korea are really helpful.

  12. pottershandclay says:

    hi again ms.betchay

    just want to ask if i invite my mom and sister, dapat ba 2 invitations or pwede ng isa n lng?
    thanks

    • Betchay says:

      Yes, isa lang ang invitation na pinadala ko. Sabay na nag-apply mga ate ko ;p

      • pottershandclay says:

        may work po ba mga sisters mo, ms betchay? kase nakalagay po sa website ng korean embassy na need pa ng ITR and bank certficate if may work ang sister ..my mom and sister have both work..so do they need to submit those documents? yung sister nyo po ba nag submit pa nun? thanks po…and GOd bless

        • Betchay says:

          They only submitted their bank certificates. Both of them are not working. If they are working, then just tell them to bring their financial documents. They could use them as additional proof that they have intentions to return to the country.

  13. Shella says:

    yay! thanks for this valuable information. sana matuloy narin kami sa korea! salamat! 🙂

    • Betchay says:

      hi miaflor! yung one year ata is only for the parents at hindi pwede sa ate… pero special cases din yun at hindi lahat eh pwede… usually binibigay lang nila kung buntis yung foreign wife or may baby… it’s best to ask the immigration about this

  16. Bep says:

    Hello. My husband is an American serving in military, I’m a Filipina holding a green card. Ma dedestino siya sa Korea next year and 3 years kami don. Ang tanong ko, pwede ko ba invite un kapatid (kapatid sa ina) ko na nasa Pilipinas to visit us there if ever? Please respond, wala po kasi ako mahanap sa mga forum regarding this kind of matter ehhh. 🙁

    • Betchay says:

      Hi Natalie! You can invite your brother but he has to present the same documents required for ordinary tourists. It isn’t difficult as long as he could prove that he has ties in the Philippines.

  21. bobby velasco says:

    • Betchay says:

      Hi Bobby! Yung asawa mo na may asawang Korean, nakatira sa Korea right? Yup, pwede kayong ma-invite ng sabay.

    • Betchay says:

      Hi Sarri! That’s right pero kung working ka, kailangan mo rin magdala ng sarili mong documents like ITR, COE and bank certificate.

    • Betchay says:

      Hi Russel! Sabi ni Rep. Jasmine Lee hindi na tatanggapin ang application ng mga kapatid ng may asawang Korean kung wala silang trabaho. Or kung may pensiyon, dapat maipakita ang source of income ay hindi galing sa Korea.

      • russel says:
