On June 9, the Prime minister of South Korea allows overseas group tours of fully vaccinated citizens to nations with steady virus response measures as early as July.
Prime minister, Kim Boo Kyum stated on Wednesday “Starting in July, we prepare to let group travel of fully vaccinated people through discussions between nations with stable antivirus conditions.”
Allowing foreigners to travel to S.Korea is an indication of the stable rate of the nation’s population who have received their first vaccine shots that reached 16.5 percent as of June 9.
Accordingly, the government has come up with a plan to promote travel safety zones, so-called “travel bubbles” for countries with stable quarantine conditions.
The government has been seeking to promote travel safety zones with countries or regions such as Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Guam, and Saipan, and has decided to start a full-fledged agreement with the other countries.
Kim Boo Kyum mentioned the severe drop in the air travel and tourism industries caused by the pandemic while seeing the increasing number of people anticipating the resumption of overseas travel.
