Are you a BPI or BDO cardholder? A promo — recently extended by the Korean embassy to 2017 — makes it easier for you to get a multiple-entry Korean visa without submitting an ITR or bank certificate.
The Embassy of the Republic of Korea announced last November 16, 2016 that it was extending its visa promo for the following cardholders:
- BDO Gold
- BDO Elite
- BPI Gold Master Card
- BPI SkyMiles Platinum Master Card
- BPI Amore Visa Platinum
- BPI Gold Express Teller Debit Card
Under the promo, visa applicants who have any of the cards listed above will not have to submit a bank certificate and income tax return (ITR). They will also be eligible for a multiple-entry visa to Korea valid for at least 3 years (although the embassy reserves the right to grant only a single entry visa upon the decision of the consul-in-charge).
Note: Employment certificate / business permit and documents other than Bank Certificate and ITR are still required.
