From June 1, 2022, travellers are allowed to enter Jeju and Yangyang visa-free via international airports. 

Although most international travellers will be allowed to enter Jeju Island visa-free, exceptions apply. The visa-free entrance to Jeju does not apply to citizens of 24 countries/regions and 10 other countries that have mutually suspended the visa-waiver program with Korea (Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, etc.).

As for Yangyang, only groups of 5 or more travellers from Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Mongolia , effective October, can enter visa-free. To be waived of visa requirement, the group of tourists must travel to Korea through a designated travel agency.

The visa-waiver program, which allows international travellers to visit Korea short-term without the requirement of a visa, was suspended on June 1, 2020, as a precautionary measure against COVID-19.
