South Korea introduces a new type of Korean leisure travel visa. The Korea Herald reported today that the Department of Justice is pushing for the Hallyu visa program against the backdrop of the increasing demand for education on Korean cultural content, to add more momentum to the Korean wave and support the local culture and music industry hit by the pandemic.

To be eligible for the program, one must plan to stay longer than 90 days in South Korea and enroll in leisure-related education. At this time, no further details regarding the Hallyu visa have been provided. According to the official, we will know in the first half of 2022 about the maximum length of stay and any possible age requirements.
