Korea Pass is an all-in-one travel card that can be used to pay for accommodations, tourist attraction entrance fees, and shopping purchases. You can also activate the transportation function of the Korea Pass by charging it outside the subway or at any number of convenient locations throughout the country. The card can be used anywhere that credit cards are accepted and will even get you extra discounts when used at any of the 6,000 Korea Pass affiliated sites. Korea Pass is an incredibly convenient travel and transportation option for visitors to Korea.

There are two basic types of Korea Passes: pre-paid cards (available in 50,000, 100,000, 300,000, and 500,000 won increments) and check cards (for international residents with a valid ‘Alien Registration Number’ only). Cards may be obtained at any Lotte Card issuer including any Lotte Department Store nationwide (keep reading for details).
