Starting April 1, visitors to Korea who have completed their COVID-19 vaccinations will be exempt from mandatory quarantine.
Ministry of the Interior and Safety announced the exemptions will be expanded to include overseas vaccinations that have not registered for vaccination status in Korea as well.
Quarantine exemption will be available for those who have completed their third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine or received two doses (one dose for Janssen) at least 14 days prior but within 180 days. However, this does not apply to vaccinated visitors from Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, and Myanmar, and must quarantine for seven days.
Overseas visitors must enter their vaccine records to Q-CODE prior to arriving in Korea and scan the provided QR code upon immigration. Q-CODE will require personal information (passport number), entry information (departure country, airline, address in Korea, phone number), and vaccine records.
