Beginning on 20 January 2022, all travelers to the Republic of Korea must provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours prior to the international departure date.
Please note: COVID-19 tests used for entry into Korea must be PCR tests. 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.
ROKG formal expectations when providing negative PCR Test Results are as follows: (“Not Detected” or “Negative” are accepted)
1. Present a paper copy of PCR 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.
