A visa is a kind of endorsement or acknowledgment whose meaning is interpreted differently from country to country. Generally, it has one of the following two meanings: one being the confirmation of permission to enter a certain country, and the other being the counsels recommendation for a foreigners entry request. In the case of the Republic of Korea, the latter definition is used. Therefore, even if a foreigner holds a Korean visa, he/she can still be denied entry to Korean soil if an officer at Immigration should find some requirements unsatisfactory after inspection.
For visas an ambassador or consul is not authorized to issue, applicants need to request approval by the Minister of Justice. For visas where the issuance is entrusted to the Embassy or Consulate, the ambassador or consul can issue them at their discretion. A visa specifying the applicant status of stay, expiration date, etc. is attached to the applicant passport and granted to the applicant. Make sure all the information on your visa is correct before entry.
These visas are exclusively for foreign patients entering Korea for the purpose of treatment at hospitals within Korea.
