PTAA seeks visa-free entry of Korean tourists

The Philippine Travel Agencies Association (PTAA) has urged the Korean government for the granting of 100 percent visa-free entry of Filipino tourists as the tourism sector prepares for the eventual resumption of travel amid the still evolving pandemic.

President Ritchie Tuaño issued this appeal for 100 percent visa-free entry to the government during the Korea Tourism Organization travel webinar.

Currently, Filipinos are allowed visa free entry to Jeju Island.  There is also the new five-day visa entry that comes with the stipulation that Filipino tourists enter through a major city and exit through Jeju Island.

“While we commend the maximum five-day visa free entry, both our governments must work on a complete visa free entry,” Tuaño said while citing the Taiwan model which after giving visa free entry in 2017 has seen a rapid increase in Filipino tourists.

In the same webinar, the PTAA sought a partnership with its Korean

Singaporean citizens with valid residence permits for work, private affairs and family reunion in China can apply for visas to China free of charge from Saturday, said the Chinese Embassy in Singapore on Sunday.
