South Korea has decided to ease requirements to enter the country amid a downward trend in COVID-19 cases, a move that could boost convenience for inbound travelers.
Starting May 23, the government will recognize negative rapid antigen test results for travelers boarding flights to South Korea, on top of PCR test results currently being accepted. Still, rapid antigen tests must be carried out by medical professionals 24 hours before arrival in South Korea.
Beginning June 1, international arrivals will be required to undergo a PCR test within three days of their entry into South Korea.
Currently, the mandatory test is required on the day of arrival.
