* Please be aware that COVID-19 Safety Guidelines are subject to change
According to the COVID-19 quarantine guidelines, all overseas entrants will be exempt from isolation starting from June 8, and who hold a PCR negative test result tested within 48 hours (OR a negative RAT test within 24 hours) prior to departure date will not need to quarantine regardless of vaccination.
The Korean government will strive to encourage foreign nationals with short-term stay visas who enter the country for tourism or other reasons to get tested promptly at the airport testing center (paid test).
On arrival at Incheon Airport, you are required to take a PCR test. After taking the test, you can travel straight to your hotel to await the result, which will arrive within 4-6 hours of taking the test. If you do not complete PCR test at the airport, you must complete PCR test at medical center nearby your accommodation. (RAT test is NOT valid).
In preparation for the increasing number of overseas entrants into Korea, it will be strongly encouraged for them to use the pre-entry quarantine system (Q-Code) through airlines and travel agencies (Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport) to shorten their waiting time for entry and enable efficient follow-up management.
