Foreign nationals of the countries/regions where visa-free entry has been suspended who intend to
enter the Korea for an important business purpose are eligible for K-ETA for Priority Entry (Business) Persons.
However, those who intend to work for short term to engage in profit-making activities (C-4),
such as temporary performance activities, advertisementㆍfashion models, lectureㆍspeeches,
research, technical guidance, are not allowed to apply and must obtain a visa at a diplomatic mission for entry.

not on the country of residence or departure.
Therefore, if you are a national of a country where visa-free entry has been suspended, you cannot apply for K-ETA.
