Hi I'm traveling to Uzbekistan and have 12 hours layover in Seoul via Korean Airlines. Do I need a visa to go out of the airport for sightseeing? I'm a Philippine passport holder.
Visa is NOT required to transit through Incheon Airport (Seoul) for Nationals of the Philippines, under the following conditions:
- Participate in the Transit Tourism Program (Advertised as free, but you have to pay 10 US dollars as an entry-procedure fee). You will have to make a reservation in advance.
- Hold an airline ticket for transit within 72 hours.
- Stay only in the possible destination for tourists of Seoul (Seoul, Incheon, Gyeonggi Province)
