I was “MIA” for about a week, as one friend had said. My sisters arrived on Sunday morning at 5:40 AM, although their original schedule was 6:20 AM. They took Cebu Pacific from NAIA 3. I got to the airport at almost 7 o’clock in the morning.
Anyway, after a week of almost non-stop walking they flew back to the Philippines at 7:30 AM. I wasn’t still free from family obligations since I had to attend a wedding on Sunday afternoon. My husband is in Italy and I had to represent him, even if the only thing that I wanted to do was to rest.
Have you ever wondered how a Korean tourist visa looks like? I took a picture of my sister’s and here it is.
The entries on the visa are pretty self-explanatory. The status is C-3-1 or single entry tourist visa. The period of sojourn refers to how many days the visa holder can stay in Korea. The issue date is when the visa was given while the final entry date refers to until when the holder can enter Korea. The immigration official at Incheon Airport stamped the visa of the date when the holder was admitted in Korea.
This is an improved visa compared to the one I had eight years ago, which was just stamped on my passport.
