Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 14) — Applicants queued overnight outside the Embassy of South Korea in Taguig City to catch the last half-day of walk-in application for visa.

They started lining up on Tuesday evening after the South Korean Embassy announced it will launch an online appointment system on Sept. 14, Wednesday, at 2 p.m. The embassy also said that beginning Sept. 15, walk-in applicants will no longer be accommodated.

The new system will allow travelers to apply for a visa by booking a schedule online. The embassy set three schedules for online appointments:

- 8:30 a.m. for accredited travel agencies and individual applicants for Filipinos spouses of Korean nationals or family visits.

- 9:30 a.m. for tourists applicants.

- 10:30 a.m. for official conferences, business, entertainment, sports, studies, religious visits, foreign diplomats and international organizations, and seasonal workers.

Once the appointment is set, applicants must bring a soft or printed copy of their reservation confirmation sent via email, completed visa application form, required documents, passport, and other valid IDs.
