F I N A L L Y ! ! ! Thank you Lord ♡
Sharing this good news to everyone ☆
Back story: Before I’m just the girl who read blogs and watch vlogs about traveling to South Korea. Yes, I have read and watched tons of it!! I even make notes 🙈 I also tried to apply last year but I got so afraid to be denied so I just kept my application and watch kdramas to help me move on. Then huhu okaaay this is it, my fangirl soul is really happy to have a korean visa *insert this is the moment 🎤* (first time sparkling kilig moments) #simplejoys😉
My friend and I were very very anxious because of my COE, I’m only in my 5th month on being employed – on probationary period(!!) when I applied for my visa. Though, the usual they will say that you must ensure you have more than 6 months or 6 months at least in your job for you to have a “strong tie” in your country, yet I still pushed through it (YOLO lol coz we already booked for our tickets last May 2018). Nonetheless, Your COE must have the complete details of your company/institution that the Embassy is requiring so you will have no problem. As for me, I tried to pass my COE w/o salary compensation and the agency did not accept my application. On my 2nd attempt, I didn’t know that my company’s email address is not included in my COE but still I submitted it anyway, huuu luckily they accepted it ~ as long as it has valid contact telephone numbers.
So what else is in my application for me to get a granted visa that may be helpful to you? (I heard you, so here it is)
- Applied for 4 days stay (leisure / vacation) *just to be safe*
- Budget: 800 USD
- Has travel history in my passport, SG 2016, HK 2014 (excpt Saudi 2016-2017 for work)
- Of course, ITR, COE, funds, Bank statement and Bank certificate
- Applied visa together, with a friend who went to Korea (April 2018) and has strong tie in the Phil(employed too). Hi Grace~
- Applied in TravelPros in SM Megamall with a fee of P700 for korean visa processing(lol not sponsored🤣)
