If you’re working full-time, or on a specific assignment for a foreign media company then it shouldn’t be too much hassle to get a journalist visa. If you’re just working on your own it can be more problematic.. Personally I always try to get a journo visa unless I feel it will actually impede instead of assist my work. But generally it really shouldn’t be a problem in the ROK.

Hello Daylin,

I have entered through Gimpo airport’s (S. Koreas international airport) immigration control, with a big amount of gear and harddrives, without any problems with immigration. You don’t need a journalist visa to go to Seoul. China, N. Korea and Laos however.

Yeah, that’s basically what I was trying to say. Though Gimpo is not the main airport into Seoul, Incheon is. Still, there shouldn’t be any hassles…

Yes, my mistake Incheon.
