SOUTH KOREA lifts all COVID-19 travel restrictions

Starting October 1, 2022, visitors to South Korea are no longer required to undergo PCR testing upon arrival.

The announcement was made on Friday by the health authorities in South Korea, keeping in mind the gradual decline in infections in the country.

With this, South Korea will no longer have any travel-related COVID-19 restrictions, as the authorities had previously already lifted pre-arrival PCR tests and mandatory quarantine for tourists.

Commenting on the news, Young-geul Choi, Director, Korea Tourism Organization, New Delhi said, “I am delighted with this new development since this directly affects how people travel and perceive Korea as a travel destination. The news of all travel restrictions being removed, gives us renewed motivation to conduct our various marketing activities in the Indian market for the promotion of travel to South Korea.”

South Korea also removed the outdoor mask mandate in September, and those who test positive for the virus need to isolate themselves for seven days. The relaxation in travel is expected to bring an influx of tourists into the country, boost travel and allow them to experience Korea’s scenic beauty, culture, food, festivities, and a lot more.
