Expedited Post-entry PCR Testing for Short-term Visitors

ButlersKorea 0 318

In anticipation of the upcoming vacation season and festival events in Korea, the Central Disease Control Headquarters has announced to make improvements to strengthen and expedite the post-entry COVID-19 screening process for short-term visitors to Korea.

Before, all short-term visitors were required to take a COVID-19 test either at airport testing facilities or a health clinic nearby their accommodation on their first day in Korea (until 23:59 of the next day after arrival), whereas the strengthened entry procedure effective from August 10, 2022 until September 9, 2022 requires all short-term visitors entering from Incheon, Gimhae, or Jeju international airports to take a PCR test at the airport testing facility or at a designated health center upon arrival.

For a smooth transition, visitors will be notified of the testing requirement by the flight crew upon boarding the plane. Visitors can book their post-entry PCR test through the Q-Code system ahead of time to expedite the process.
