On March 8, 2021, Minister Park Beom Kye of the Ministry of Justice made an announcement that the online visit reservation system shall be implemented in all Immigration Offices starting April 1, 2021. We believe this system shall expedite the visa processing system.
According to the Ministry of Justice, this system shall not, only, reduce long lines and waiting time of visitors, it will also ensure proper social distancing in compliance with COVID-19 regulations.
The online visit reservation system shall require visitors to go to this website: www.hikorea.go.kr and reserve a time slot before you can make an in-person visit to the designated Immigration Office. However, civil petitions that require an on-site application, under the law, is not covered by the online visit reservation system.
