Korean Visa Number

For those of you who are wondering which one is the Korean Visa number in the visa, it’s the one on the upper right corner with the PH, and not the one in red characters.


Since I needed the Visa number for my Taiwan Visa-free entry/travel certificate application, I had to be sure which one it is. I looked it up online but not a sure answer came up.

Then I saw this photo on VisitKorea page.


I tried google-translating the Korean characters in no. 1, and voila! It says Visa number.


UPDATE: I also emailed the Korean embassy to confirm and this is their response.


This is what a Taiwan Travel Certificate looks like.


Hope this helps!

    • Hi! I just printed the certificate and that was about it. The immigration officer will only need your passport (to check the visa you indicated in the certificate) and the certificate. πŸ™‚

  1. Hi! Gonna be applying for the Taiwan VISA too. Yung Korea Visa Number ba is yung two lines including PH? So probably PH00000000000? Did you get approved for the Taiwan VISA/certificate? Thanks!

  2. Hi! Thank you so much for this! I also applied for a Taiwan visa-free travel certificate and I wasn’t sure if I entered the correct Korea visa number.
    I’ve been ~googling~ for answers for almost 2 days good thing I stumbled on your post. πŸ˜€

    Thanks again! πŸ™‚

    (There’s a pinoy travel blog that says the korea visa number are the one written in red characters / below the name. I have to tell them they need to edit it to avoid confusion)

  4. Hi!

    I filled up my travel authorization but I did not include the second line 😦 I applied my visa in Cebu so mine starts with CB. Huhuhu. What should I do? 😦

    • No worries. According to the official consular website, “If any mistake is made during the online application process, the applicant may submit a new application.” πŸ™‚ CB is fine (I think it’s just a code/initials of the place you got your visa from) because the immigration officer will only check if the visa number you indicated in the certificate matches the one on your visa. 😊

    • Thank you! Nakaka paranoid kasi yung expired korean visa ko (which is nung 2013 naexpire) lang din yung gagamitin ko to apply for free visa. I don’t want to end up rejecting ng immigration. Haha πŸ™‚ Btw, dahil nagamit mo din naman yung sayo for the application so okay na din ako.
      Thank you for these infos πŸ™‚

      • No you’re good. Wala pa naman pong 10 years ang visa po ninyo. πŸ™‚ You’re welcome and have an amazing time in Taiwan!

  5. My husband and I were wondering about this for 30 minutes now at 10:20pm. Your blog was heaven sent! Many thanks!

  6. Thank you, it is really useful. I am confused when reading the korean visa. I wonder which one is the visa number ( the red one or the black on). I did the searching on the internet and couldn’t be sure until I found your this page. Thank you a lot.

  7. so helpful.. thanks mali ang nagamit naming visa number. buti nalang i found this blog. so ulet ako πŸ™‚

  8. Hi. I need your help. I just submitted an online application for TW travel authorization certificate but I used a wrong email address, i.e. the hotel’s email address :(. Can I submit a new application? Thanks.

    • Hi! No I did not. I honestly never knew about that. I usually fill out the arrival card/paper they give out on the plane. πŸ™‚

    • Hi! 😊 They did not ask me about my hotel booking. They didn’t even ask me anything. I’ve been to Taiwan twice and the immigration officer just checked my Korean visa and my travel certificate. May I ask where are you from?

      • Hi, I’m from Vietnam , I use Korea visa to apply TAC

        I try to submit new application but niaspeedy gave me back my old TAC ( I change in 12/4 but my new TAC ” Date and Time Authorization ” is 28/3 , the day I submit my first and old TAC ) , flight n.o and hotel don’t print in TAC , so I don’t know if it’s ok or not 😦

      • I’m not sure how the travel certificate looks now but the last time I had one, they did not require me to indicate the hotel and flight no. Why were you trying to submit a new application? Was there a mistake?

      • yes , because I need to change my flight no and hotel address but I don’t know are my new informations updated or not because TAC don’t has flight no and hotel….

        I’m worry that my TAC will be rejected because wrong flight no 😦

      • When is your flight? I suggest you contact the ROC-Taiwan embassy in Vietnam as soon as you can. I’ll send you an email so I can help you in private.

      • It’s ok , today I’ll try to contact ROC , my flight is in 26 , I hope they will email back before that day 😦
        Hope that they won’t reject my passport just because my flight T _ T
        Thank you for helping me.

  9. Hi Kris, the korean visa can be a visitor visa right? I went to Korea in 2015 so my korean visitor visa has expired in 2015. I’m going to Taiwan in Nov 2018. Btw, I’m from Myanmar πŸ™‚
