Latest updates about the pre-departure Covid test

We have got the latest guidelines and FAQ from the LOC that can be summarised in a few sentences:

  1. You have to take a pre-departure Covid PCR test or a supervised Rapid Antigen Test if you wish to cross the South Korean border.
  2. The result of either test has to be written explicitly as NEGATIVE, other words are not acceptable and will be considered either positive or invalid. If you have recovered and still have a positive result, you will not be allowed to cross the South Korean border. Consider, please, a plan B for such a case.
