Travelers also won’t need to submit a Consent for Isolation.

This announcement comes a few months after the South Korean government partially lifted its travel restrictions, allowing entry for diplomats and foreign government officials, family of Korean nationals or foreign long-term visa holders in Korea, seafarers, and those with essential corporate activities in Korea, as well as travelers staying short-term for news coverage and employment.

More details will be shared by the Korean Embassy soon, so keep your eyes peeled for updates!
