South Korea has taken a step further to welcome Indian travelers. Starting from 8th June, all international travelers to Korea are not required to quarantine regardless of their vaccination status.

After arrival in Korea, another PCR test must be done within three days and a negative PCR test result must be submitted. If travelers do not have a negative test result or lack proper information, they will be unable to board their flight. Also, if travelers get a positive test result upon arrival, they must directly get quarantined.
