This paper is concerned with time periodic solutions to the three-dimensional compressible fluid models of Korteweg type under some smallness and structure conditions on a time periodic force. The proof is based on a regularized approximation scheme and the topological degree theory for time periodic solutions in a bounded domain. Furthermore, via a limiting process, the existence results can be obtained in the whole space.
