South Korean health authorities have clarified that not every vaccinated person arriving in the country from overseas will be exempt from a two-week quarantine if they're purpose of visit is for leisure.
They reiterated today that quarantine-free entry starting next month applies only to people coming to visit their immediate family members, to do business, scholarship or research or other visits deemed to be in the public interest.
To be exempt under revised regulations, a traveler must have received a COVID-19 vaccine approved by the World Health Organization, such as Moderna, Pfizer or AstraZeneca.
Meanwhile, tourists will still have to quarantine for 14 days.
