Non-Compliance of Self-Quarantine = Deportation and More

by K4E Team, 05/04/2020


The following notice was issued by the Korean government and forwarded to us by the Busan Global Center. It applies to all areas of Korea.

Administrative disposition procedures against non-compliance

Foreigners who refuse to obey health authority's (local government) orders, which involve self-quarantine, testing and treatment for the novel coronavirus, will face revocation of visa and permission of stay regardless of criminal punishment. In addition to that, the relevant foreigner will be subject to deportation and an entry ban depending on the severity of the violations. 


Public health Authority (local government) finds out non-compliance  - Public Health Authority (local gov't) - Ministry of Justice notifies personal information - Visa/Permission of stay Revoked/Deportation/Entry ban

Furthermore, the MOJ is in consultation with relevant ministries and departments to hold those foreigners, who violate self-quarantine rules, liable for the damage incurred to the country, including additional quarantines and any futher spread of the virus, if such non-compliance is found to constitute an illegality.
