< Central Disease Control HQ >

 

 

1. Are negative PCR Certificates issued in any languages other than Korean or English accepted?

 

In principle, certificates must be issued either in Korean or English.

 

In the case the certificate is issued in a third language, a translated version in either Korean or English, with a notarial certificate for the translation, will be accepted.

For instance, translation certification issued by a notary organization

in the country of departure.

 

 

2. What types of test are accepted?

 

Only Real-time Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction will be accepted.

 

3. When should I take the test?

 

The test result must be issued within 72 hours before your departure.

For instance, when boarding an airplane departing on 21.1.10.

10:00am, certificates issued after 21.1.7. 0am are accepted.

 

4. What do I do if I have a connecting flight? (Country A Country B Korea)

 

If you transfer a flight from Country A to Country B without entering B, the certificate must be issued at A.

 

 

If you transfer a flight from A to B, while entering B before departing for Korea, the certificate must be issued in Country B.

 

5. Are foreign passengers transiting in Korea without entry and heading to a third country required to submit a negative PCR test certificate? (Country A Korea Country B)

 

Passengers transiting in Korea without entry and heading to another country are exempted from submitting a negative PCR test certificate.

 

6. If I received my PCR test result online, how should I submit it and will it be approved when entering Korea?

 

A printed copy of the result must be submitted for the National Quarantine Service authorities to verify the negative PCR test result in detail.

 

The test result should include your name (as stated in your passport), type of test that you received, test result, and issuance date.

 

7. What will happen if I arrive in Korea without a negative PCR test certificate?

 

Foreign travelers who fail to submit a negative PCR test result will be denied entry (for all countries)

 

Korean nationals entering Korea from the UK or South Africa will be quarantined in a temporary facility for 2 weeks. Individuals are responsible for the expenses of using the facility (1,680,000 KRW per person)

 

8. Do I need to be tested at a designated institute?

 

Travelers from countries under reinforced quarantine measures by the Korean government (as of 21.1.7.) must submit a negative PCR test result issued by the designated institution in the country. (Refer to local embassy/consulate website.) These countries include the Philippines, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Bangladesh, and Nepal.

 

Travelers from other countries can submit certificates issued by non-designated institutions.
