🛡️ Travel safety
Do not travel
From 1 June, foreign nationals residing in South Korea on most types of long-term visas will need to apply for a re-entry permit before undertaking any travel out of South Korea. If you leave without a re-entry permit, you'll need to apply for a new long-term visa before you can return. Some visa holders may be exempt from these measures (see ‘Travel’). If you have been granted a re-entry permit allowing you to return, you'll also need a medical certificate (in Korean or English) confirming a negative COVID test result or that you show no symptoms of illness. This certificate must be issued within 48hrs prior to boarding your return flight to South Korea. Our advice has not changed: Do not travel to South Korea
