  I want to know about visa & citizenship processing times

Visa applicants in the Republic of Korea who lodge their applications from 16 August 2022 may receive a letter requiring them to attend the Australian Biometric Collection Centre (ABCC) located in Seoul.

Applicants will need to book an appointment on the VFS Global website (available after 16 August 2022). You should only book a biometrics collection appointment if you receive a letter requesting you to provide your biometrics.

Please do not contact the Australian Embassy in Seoul to make an appointment to submit your biometrics.

Most applications can only be lodged online.
