Before, all short-term visitors were required to take a COVID-19 test at airport testing facilities or a health clinic near their accommodation on their first day in Korea (until 23:59 the next day after arrival). Still, the reinforced entrance procedure, effective from August 10, 2022, through September 9, 2022, requires all short-term tourists from Incheon, Gimhae, or Jeju international airports to do a PCR test at the airport facility upon arrival.

The flight crew will notify visitors of the airport testing requirement upon boarding the plane to ensure a smooth transfer. To speed up the process, visitors can schedule their post-entry PCR test through the Q-Code system ahead of time.
