Welcome Message


Welcome to the Embassy of Portugal in Seoul.


The Embassy of Portugal in Seoul informs that, the Government of the Republic of Korea decided to extend the duration of stay allowed to Portuguese nationals in the territory of the Republic of Korea to 90 days within a 180 day period as a reciprocity to what is already applied in Portugal, to korean nationals, starting from July 10, 2018.


The Consular Section of the Embassy of Portugal in Seoul informs that, under Article 35 of the Immigration Act of the Republic of Korea, foreign citizens living in this country must report to the South Korean Government any changes in Alien Registration Matters, namely:

  • Report any changes in Alien Registration Card, including, Name, Gender, Date of Birth, Nationality, Passport Number / Date of Issue / Expiry Date, to the Chief of the Immigration Office having jurisdiction over the place of sojourn within 14 days and in accordance with Article 100 of the Immigration Act, administrative fees of less than 1 million KRW can be imposed for violations of the provision of the Act.
  • The mandatory reporting period is calculated starting 30 days after the issue date of a passport, taking into consideration that there exists difference between the passport issue date and the collection date when passports of foreign citizens are re-issued or renewed while staying in Korea. Thus, the period of imposing fines is calculated starting 44 days after the issue date of a new passport.
