Japanese Enter Korea Without Visa In August: Report

People carrying travel documents issued by Japan, Taiwan or Macau will be allowed to enter South Korea visa-free sometime in August, Yonhap reported, citing authorities in Seoul, the capital of South Korea.

However, these travelers must apply for entry permits online through the Korea Electronic Travel Authorization website at least 72 hours before their incoming flight takes off.

The report did not clarify whether such visa-free entry only applies to entry through Seoul.

Of Korea’s 17 casinos, 16 are open to foreigners only, with many larger venues located in Seoul or Incheon, near the capital. Before the pandemic, Japanese tourists were identified as the main source of players for Korean casinos.

In late June, Grand Korea Leisure Inc., one of the foreign-only casino operators and with two locations in Seoul, told GGRAsia that tourists from Japan were spending “about a month” trying to get a short-stay visa for Korea.

According to the coalition, water authorities hope that “temporarily” waiving visa requirements for those who hold travel documents from Japan, Taiwan or Macau will help attract tourists to Festa 2022 in Seoul.

The event will be held from Aug. 10-14, and there will be linked performances by K-pop artists. The festive period also includes the Formula E World Championship Motor Race for electric vehicles, which will be held in Seoul on the weekends of Aug. 13 and 14.

Since June 1, South Korea has resumed issuing short-term tourist visas for mainland travel to individual groups of visitors and tourists.

These permits for independent travelers are known as C-3 visas, and permits for groups can be issued electronically and are known as eVisas.

The eVisa scheme has been suspended since April 2020 due to health and safety measures amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
