Aussies and Kiwis are gearing up for overseas travel, but doing so safely and without too much fuss isn’t an easy task. To ease the burden on inbound international travellers, the South Korean government is removing the mandatory vaccination requirement.

While travellers no longer need to prove their vaccination status, they can rest assured that cases of COVID19 entering Korea are closely monitored with the newly implemented Q-code system, mandatory pre-departure RAT/PCR test and on-arrival PCR test.

Furthermore, travellers who do test positive for COVID19 while in Korea can now isolate themselves in the hotels booked for their travel at the hotel’s approval, opposed to a government-designated quarantine hotel.

Clearly, travel to South Korea is shaping up to be some of the easiest and safest during this phase of the pandemic. To further encourage people back, South Korea’s national carriers, Korean Air and Asiana Airlines, in collaboration with the Korea Tourism Organization, are running a discount promotion on direct flights between Sydney and Incheon for travel dates up to 31 December 2022.
