Health Precautions

Obligatory Vaccination and Other Recommendations
It is recommended that everyone 16 years of age and older should get fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before travel and present, if necessary, evidence of COVID-19 vaccination at the border. The updated information on all health entry requirements as well as on routine and recommended vaccines for South Korea are provided on the dedicated pages on TravelHealthPro and CDC websites.
While there are no official requirements for vaccination, the following are strongly recommended: tetanus, diphtheria, typhoid fever, chickenpox, influenza, measles, rabies, hepatitis A and B and poliomyelitis. When traveling outside major cites, vaccination against Japanese encephalitis is recommended. There is a very low risk of malaria in the northern areas of South Korea, in Gangwon-do and Gyeonggi-do provinces and Incheon City. When traveling there, taking prescription medicine is advised. All passengers and flight crews who arrive in Korea from regions where cholera, yellow fever and bubonic plague have been detected may be required to complete a quarantine questionnaire.
