South Korea - Visa Not Required for Australian Passport Holders

As of 1 April 2023, Australian passport holders are no longer required to apply for Korea’s Electronic Travel Authorization (K-ETA) when travelling to South Korea between 1 April 2023 and 31 December 2024. 

For all other nationalities, please check visa requirements via the official Korea Immigration Service website.

Your Australian passport is still required to have at least six months validity from your scheduled return home date, with two blank facing pages.

We still require a copy of your passport to book internal train travel. If you haven't done so already, please email a coloured scan of your passport bio page to no later than 75 days before travel.
