International Arrivals to Korea

by K4E Team, 01/04/2020


Starting April 1, all travelers entering South Korea from overseas are required to self-isolate for two weeks upon arrival. This applies to all nationalities, including Korean nationals, regardless of length of stay.

All Seoul citizens arriving from overseas must receive a diagnostic test upon arrival and self-isolate for 14 days.

Those without an accommodation or a suitable place will be quarantined in facilities provided by the central/local governments at their own expense.
Medical examinations and treatment support will be provided by the national government for non-Koreans. This does not include living expenses.

Emergency Shuttle Bus for International Arrivals
The Seoul Metropolitan Government has prepared shuttle buses for arriving passengers to get them from Incheon to Seoul.
