From April 1, 2023 until December 31, 2024 inclusive, Belgian travelers wishing to travel to Korea no longer need to apply for a Korean electronic travel authorization (K-ETA). More information

Travelers visiting Korea on vacation or on a business trip can inform the Embassy of their trip on TravellersOnline. It is recommended to enter your information (such as your current COVID symptoms) into the Korean authorities' registration system (Q-Code) prior to departure, to shorten your waiting time at immigration control.

For all questions related to the Corona virus, travelers to Korea can contact the number 1339. (Option 5 connects you with a translation service for service in English). You can find the latest situation on the Korean Center for Disease Control and Prevention website
