An "entry" indicates the number of times you are allowed to enter the country with the visa.
Single - The visa will allow a traveler to enter the country one time
Double - The visa will allow the traveler to enter the country two times.
Triple - The visa will allow the traveler to enter the country three times.
Multiple - The visa will allow the traveler to enter the country, essentially, an unlimited number of times.
Please note: Not all countries offer all options. Some countries may only offer a single entry, some may only offer single or multiple entry, and others may only offer multiple entry visas.
It is important to consider the number of entries for a few reasons. Generally speaking, multiple entry visas are valid for a longer period of time. For instance, a single entry will generally only be valid to be used within a few months whereas a multiple entry visa will generally be valid for a year or longer. If you may travel to the country in the future, obtaining a multiple entry visa now may save you money in the long run.
It is also important to consider the details of your trip. If you travel from the U.S. to India for a week, then travel to Indonesia for a week, and then connect back through India on your way home, this may be considered entering India twice, even if only to catch a flight. If traveling to China, taking a day trip to Hong Kong is considered an "exit" from China and then a "re-entry" upon return.
The passport card is a credit-card size U.S. passport that, just like a passport book, is proof of U.S. citizenship and identity but can ONLY be used to re-enter the United States at land border crossings and sea ports-of-entry from:

Please note: Just like passport books, passport cards are valid for 10 years for applicants 16 and older and 5 years for applicants under 16.
Many non-U.S. citizens who reside in the U.S. will require a visa to travel for business or tourism.
For US citizens you must have a valid passport to enter the Republic of Korea. Although obtaining a visa in advance can ease the entry process, as long as you have a valid U.S. passport, you can enter the Republic of Korea without a visa for a stay of up to 90 days if you are a tourist or on business.
On our website you will find a link to the application for the student visa. South Korea will only accept applications that are written in block letters. You may apply for the visa 30 to 90 days prior to your departure for South Korea.
You will also need new passport style photos , a copy of the Business Registration Certificate of the Korean University, acceptance letter from the Korean university, proof of finances, a recommendation letter from your home university and proof that you’ve completed at least one semester at your home university.
Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months after your planned departure from South Korean. You will also need at least 2 pages for the visa to be placed into your passport and for immigration stamps when you arrive and depart from South Korea.
If you do not meet these requirements then you will have to get a new passport. ItsEasy can help you with this process.
Remember when you depart from the U.S. your airline will check to make sure you have a valid visa. Upon arrival in South Korean, your passport will be reviewed again to make sure you have a valid visa. If not valid, you will not be allowed to enter the country and will have to return to the U.S.
