Currency & Credit card

The unit of Korean currency is the Won. US $1 is about KRW 1200 as of February 2016. Major foreign currencies can be exchanged at banks, hotels, and the airport include the US Dollar, Japanese Yen, Euro, and UK Sterling. Credit cards including VISA, Master Card, American Express and Diners Club, are widely accepted in most restaurants and hotels.


Outlets for 220 Volts are commonly available in hotels and other facilities in Korea. Please check the power supply before using equipment.


Tipping is not a traditional Korean custom. A 10% service charge is added to your bill at all tourist hotels so tipping is not expected. It is not necessary to tip a taxi driver unless he assists you with luggage or provides an extra service.

Passport & VISA

Foreigners wishing to visit the Republic of Korea should obtain a valid passport. Visitors with confirmed round-tickets can stay for 30 days without visas. However, visitors from some countries should obtain an entry visa before coming to Korea.
