Until April next year, Filipinos are allowed to enter South Korea visa-free. However, according to Yonhap news agency, it will only be granted if you arrive through its airport near the venue of the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Not only the Philippines, but also Indonesia and Vietnam are given visa-free privileges. It’s on the condition that they enter through YangYang airport near Pyeongchang, which is hosting the quadrennial games.

Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines offer flights to Busan and Incheon. As of the moment, there are no direct commercial flights from the Philippines to YangYang.

As per the report of Yonhap, South Korea also extended the waiver on the $15 visa fee for Chinese tourists with electronic passports to the end of next year from the end of this year.
