I will be travelling to South Korea on 31th MAY, 2023 for tourism purposes. Before travelling, I have to get my visa approved. So, I was looking for some service based out of Nagpur/Bengaluru which can assist me in the same. Usually, I apply through VFS global. However this time, the service is only available for Delhi & Kolkata as mentioned on their website https://visa.vfsglobal.com/ind/en/kor/attend-centre as well as here https://overseas.mofa.go.kr/in-en/wpge/m_2660/contents.do . I was wondering if anybody else is facing the same problem and/or have a solution for this.

They talk about the state you actually live in

If you live in any of the states under the Chennai consulate jurisdiction, the rules are as follows :

  1. Visa applicants to collect tokens from ground floor of the consulate building at 9AM. 17 tokens for individuals and 8 tokens for agents are issued on a first come first serve basis only at sharp 9AM. NO EXCEPTIONS OR PRIOR APPOINTMENTS

  2. Visa applicants without check list or documents mentioned on the checklist will not be allowed to submit their application

  3. Those creating any issues/disturbance during token distribution or those submitting fake documents during application will be de barred from further submissions

  4. Please avoid calling for visa status enquiry. Visa status will be uploaded after 15 days from submission

  5. Visa once approved can be collected from consulate between 3 to 4PM.

The first point means that only 17 individual applications will be allowed to be lodged on that day

If you live in any of the states under the Mumbai consulate jurisdiction, the applications are to be lodged at select travel agencies link to the relevant information

If you live in any of the other states, you indeed need to visit the VFSGlobal offices in New Delhi and Kolkata
