Jeju-do, perhaps Korea’s most beautiful destination to visit all year-round, is also a designated UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. There are several ways to travel to this beautiful island and one of them is by ferries! The ferry services to the island are currently available from multiple points including passengers’ port at Goheung and Yeosu of Jeollanam-do, and more ports will be opened for operations in the future.

• Boarding Procedures

Passengers are required to carry passports, alien registration cards or ID cards at the time of boarding and after. As travel to Jeju Island is domestic, check-in procedures are comparatively simple, however, travelers are recommended to arrive at the port terminal ahead of departing time. Walk-in passengers are asked to arrive at the passenger terminal at least 30 minutes prior to departure. Passengers bringing vehicles are asked to arrive at the appropriate departure gate at least 2-3 hours before departure for ticket issuance and boarding.

Tip:
Visitors with outbound plane tickets may shop at the duty-free shops available at select terminals, but are advised to complete boarding procedures an hour before the departure time, as duty-free shops are only available after boarding procedures have been completed.
