  • What you need to know about K-ETA

    As of Sept. 1, the Republic of Korea requires a Korea Electronic Travel Authorization (K-ETA) for entry and re-entry into the country. Registration through this system is now mandatory for foreign travelers attempting to gain entry into ROK using a passport from 66 visa-free travel countries including U.S. citizens. USFK service members are exempt from this requirement and do not require a K-ETA registration, as their Common Access Card and official military orders authorize them for travel. However, it is strongly recommended that military members don’t get K-ETA “just in case”, as a pending K-ETA registration will prevent you from traveling even if you don’t need one.
