Top Companies Chosen By The Korean Embassy

I am sure that most of us already watched a kdrama. Most of Pinoys are fan of kdrama and kpops. Some spend too much time watching kdramas or spending too much money for their kpop concerts. So those are one of the reasons that most of us are planning to go to Korea. Some wants to experience the cold weather or want to see the beauty of korea during sprind.

We all have our own reasons to visit Korea so now, I will give you the list of top companies chosen by Korean Embassy and that are exempted from submitting bank certificate, bank statement and ITR.


  1.  ABS-CBN Network
  2. Citibank, N.A.
  3. Holcim Philippines, Inc.
  4. Honda Philippines
  5. JG Summit Holding Inc.
  6. Maybank
  7. Petron Corporation
  8. Philippine Airlines, Inc.
  9. Philippine Savings Bank
  10.  Samsung Electro-Mechanics Philipines Corp.
  11.  San Miguel Food, Inc.
  12. Seaoil Philippines, Inc.
  13. Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation
  14. Unilab
  15. Universal Robina Corporation
So if you are employees of these companies, you are exempted from submitting bank certificate, bank statement and ITR.

I hope this helped you and good luck to your travel to South Korea!
