A negative pre-departure Covid test certificate is no longer needed of visitors arriving in South Korea.
Arrivals must still complete a questionnaire on their health, though.
According to an updated UK Foreign Office advisory: “The South Korean government encourages all arrivals to log this information in the Quarantine Covid19 Defence (Q-Code) system prior to travel.
“Paper-based alternatives can be used instead but may result in a slower arrivals process.”
PCR testing must be done within 24 hours of arrival in South Korea.
“All foreign short-term travellers are advised to take a PCR test at an airport clinic,” the FCDO advice said.
“You can reserve an appointment for a test on arrival at Seoul’s Incheon airport, through the airport clinic’s website.
“Foreign short-term travellers should pay for a PCR test at the airport clinic upon arrival while Korean citizens and long-term visa-holders may visit a local public health centre to take a test for free.
“Arrivals are encouraged to log the result of their arrival PCR test in the Quarantine Covid-19 Defence (Q-Code) system, even if they did not use the Q-Code system when entering South Korea.
“You must remain in your accommodation or residence until you have received a negative PCR test result.”
