For South Korea, visitors entering this country must wear masks and their body temperatures must be below 37.5 degrees Celsius.

They should also self-isolate and install a mobile application to be monitored.

All passengers returning to Vietnam must be isolated for 14 days according to regulations to prevent Covid-19.
