From September 3, foreign tourists, including those from Russia, will not need to present a negative PCR or rapid test result when entering South Korea.
“To all travelers, whether our citizens or foreigners arriving in Korea by plane or ship will not need to take a negative PCR test starting at midnight on September 3,”, Second Vice Minister of Health Lee Kiil said during a meeting of the central headquarters for countering emergency incidents and safety. This is reported by ATOR.
At the same time, the requirement that arriving foreign travelers must pass a PCR test within the first day after entering South Korea will continue to apply.
Thus, in addition to PCR -a test made within the first 24 hours of stay in the country will also require K-ETA – an electronic entry permit for citizens of states who arrive under a visa-free regime.
