Tourists with symptoms of the disease can be tested for free.


The Republic of Korea cancels from Saturday the requirement for mandatory testing for coronavirus within a day after arrival in the country. This was announced on Friday at the central headquarters for countering emergencies and security measures.

"From October 1, mandatory PCR testing is canceled for one day upon arrival for all visitors," the South Korean authorities said. A decrease in the increase in those infected with coronavirus was cited as the reason for the weakening of the measure. At the same time, people with symptoms can be tested free of charge at local medical centers within three days after arrival.

Since September 3, the authorities of the Republic of Korea no longer require travelers to test for coronavirus before entering the country. In June, South Korea lifted a mandatory seven-day quarantine on arrival for unvaccinated individuals.

On April 1, the Republic of Korea resumed the visa-free regime with Russia. To visit the country, you must register on the state portal for electronic registration of arrivals (K-ETA). However, registration in the electronic system does not guarantee entry into the country, the final decision is made by an employee of the migration service.
