UPDATE: COVID-19 tests used for entry into Korea must be PCR tests or supervised Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) performed at a hospital or clinic. Please check to see if your departure airport offers rapid PCR tests as an option. There is a provision for using a test rendered invalid due to flight delays. The burden of proof lies on the traveler and the evidence of delay must come from the airline.

1. Present a paper copy of PCR/RAT test results. Please keep an extra copy.

2. Your full name must match immigration ID (CAC or Passport) and DOB or DoD ID # or Passport #.

3. Include the name the laboratory or institution that issued the test result. (e.g. MTF name, test center or pharmacy name)

5. Include the time and date of testing on test result certificate. (Please verify accuracy.)

6. All results must be presented in either English or Hangul.
