In response to the high demand of visas for Korea from Indonesian tourists, the Korean Embassy in Jakarta has begun accepting submissions from local travel agencies, as reported by visitkorea.or.id.

The step was taken to ease Korean visa applications, which are currently handled by 14 authorized travel agents listed in the embassy’s consulate.

Interested travel agencies may download the Authorized Travel Agent Company Registration Card, which is available on the embassy's official website. Other documents that must be attached include a business license (SIUP) and the travel agency's business license. All documents must be submitted to the Korean Embassy's consulate office between Feb. 19 and Mar. 2.

The Korean Embassy has also applied a registration system for visa-handling representatives so that the consulate can contact each representative directly to confirm visa documents. In order to register the representatives, travel agencies must submit the visa handler’s name to the consulate by attaching the registration form, also downloadable from the embassy’s website.

Registration for representatives is open until Apr. 2. More info can be obtained at the Korean Embassy's website at http://idn.mofat.go.kr. (asw)
