Revisit Korea Program Application  (PDF File - Revised January, 2016)


Subsidized Revisit Korea Tours Expanded

The Republic of Korea (ROK) subsidized "Revisit Korea Tours" will be expanded in 2016. In addition, "Korea Defense Veterans" will be eligible to submit applications. "War" veterans will still have the first priority. However, as the war veterans age, "Defense Veterans", those classified as having served in Korea from Oct 16, 1954 to the present, will be eligible to participate.

In view of this major change, we are lowering the required tour deposit from $450.00 to a non-refundable sum of $50.00 per person. This will permit us to build up a larger inventory of veterans desiring to "Return". When the monthly quotas are received from the ROK Minister of Patriots and Veterans Affairs, (MPVA), usually in February, we will notify "those registered" of the options, by month. If the “War” veterans slots cannot be filled, we will then offer them to the "Defense" veterans, that have pre-registered. This will be done on a "First come" basis. At that time, the balance due of $400.00 per person for administration, logistics and insurance will be due, and the veteran(s) will be billed.

Important, please read carefully, all other eligibility requirements regarding health insurance, service "In, over, or around" Korea, etc., will remain applicable and can be read on the NEW Revisit Korea registration form in The Graybeards magazine, or at: www.KWVA.org or www.miltours.com.

Note: Veterans that have previously registered with a $450.00 deposit, will have the first priority.

Announcing the 2017 Peace Camp For Youth
23–30 June 2017

With the 65th Anniversaries of the Korea War commemorations continuing this year, the Republic of Korea (ROK) government has made the decisions to once again commemorate not only the veterans from all the United Nation Countries and their contributions to saving their country from Communism, but to welcome all the veteran’s grandchildren to Korea on a very special program in June. Called the "Peace Camps for Youth" (PCFY), this program was a huge success in the past and we have quotas to continue the program this year.

General information & requirements:
  • Participant must be a Grandchild or Great-grandchild of a Korean War Veteran in a college program.
  • Be at least eighteen (18) years old (waivers for 17 year-old high school graduates.)
  • Grade Point Average of 2.5 required.
  • Be in "relatively" good health since some physical hiking/walking is involved.
  • Have a current passport.
  • There are thirty (30) quotas and it will be first come, first served. The group will have a tour escort.
  • All expenses for the grandchild while in Korea, will be paid for by the ROK government (Double occupancy.) Each participant will receive subsidized air to Korea. (The ROK Government will pay a 50% portion of both the domestic & international roundtrip airfare.)
  • A service charge of just $250 is required for administrative handling, U.S. tour escort, ticketing, health and disability insurance (required by the ROK government.)
     

All programs are conducted in English.
