This page will be updated with the most current Covid-19 restrictions in South Korea

As of November 1, 2021, all travelers entering into the Republic of Korea must provide a proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued within 72 hours of their departure. Travel restrictions vary depending on the country of departure, as the Republic of Korea has started to launch Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTL) programs with certain countries, allowing fully vaccinated individuals to travel without quarantine requirements. Please direct any questions regarding entry to Korea and quarantine requirements to your nearest Korean Embassy or Consulate, as the terms and conditions vary.
