Visitors will soon find it even simpler to travel in South Korea. The nation will no longer require all tourists to take the COVID-19 test prior to departure, which is anticipated to increase tourism even further.
The ease of travel to South Korea will only increase. The requirement for the COVID-19 test to be taken prior to departure will be eliminated beginning on Saturday, September 3. South Korea is well-liked as the best travel destination for tourists from around the world known for its cuisine, culture, and more (and especially India, thanks to the Hallyu or the Korean wave).
South Korea lifts the pre-departure test and loosens travel restrictions.
The restrictions on overseas travelers have lifted up and now they won’t need to take a pre-departure test anymore, but they will still need to take a COVID-19 PCR test within 24 hours of getting there.
In a recent interview with Reuters, the second vice health minister of the country Lee-Ki-il said, “The weekly number of infections has declined for the first time in nine weeks and the virus is showing signs of slowing down.”
Right now, South Korea is still required to wear masks, and anyone who tests positive for the virus must stay in isolation for seven days. However, the easing of travel restrictions is anticipated to increase tourism, encourage travel, and provide visitors the chance to experience Korea’s scenic beauty, culture, food, festivities, and much more.
