What are the restrictions in Seoul
Seoul is currently under level four social distancing restrictions, meaning masks are compulsory in public places and on public transport. Failure to wear a mask can result in a fine of up to 100,000 Korean Won (€73).
Tourists will also need a negative PCR test, taken in the last 72 hours, in order to enter Seoul. Passengers will then be temperature checked and asked to take another mandatory PCR test upon arrival.
Further PCR tests will be required during your stay, and you’ll be required to monitor your health via a self-diagnosis app.
Restaurants are allowed to stay open until 10pm under level four restrictions, while nightclubs and pubs remain closed. Gatherings of up to six people are allowed before 6pm if at least two people are fully vaccinated, while after 6pm at least four of the six must be fully vaccinated.
South Korea hopes to be restriction-free by February 2022.
