(8th Update) Entry Restrictions due to COVID-19

March 29 2020

Effective from 1 April 2020:

  1. Not only foreign residents but also short-term visitors and South Korean citizens are also required to do 2 weeks of home quarantine after arriving in South Korea.
  2. Regardless of nationality, if an inbound passenger does not have a residence in South Korea, the government will provide a designated residential facility for 2 weeks of quarantine and will charge KRW 100,000 per day.

It is important to strictly follow the latest quarantine instructions as penalties on quarantine violations are high. (E.g. compensation claim, Visa & ARC cancellation, deportation, entry ban)
