South Korean govt to lift quarantine restrictions for foreign arrivals
SEOUL: The Government of South Korea will remove the seven-day quarantine restrictions for the overseas arrivals, who have completed their COVID-19 vaccination. This will apply from March 21.
South Korea is one of the labour destination countries for Nepali migrant workers. The restriction removal is believed to ease the entry or the return of Nepali migrant workers to the country.
South Korea has been receiving migrant workers from various 16 countries including Nepal, Pakistan, Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Myanmar under the EPS programme.
Lack of spaces and high fees for isolation has hit migrant workers waiting for their return or entry to the country, it has been said. RSS
