USFK aligns with ROK for arrival policy

By USFK Public Affairs

In order to align with ROK entry requirement changes, USFK has implemented the following changes for SOFA-affiliated arrivals beginning July 25:

All arrivals, regardless of vaccination status, shall be subject to a Day 1 PCR test at a military treatment facility (MTF). Movement will be restricted until results are received. Personnel assigned to areas not serviced by a military treatment facility may have their PCR test conducted by an alternate civilian facility (airport, civilian hospital, etc.). MTF PCR contacts are listed below.

Movement off-installation is prohibited unless traveling between domicile and duty or in the event of a medical emergency or threat to safety. 

Day 6/7 self-administered rapid antigen tests are recommended, but not required.

Non-traveling cohabitants shall not be required to restrict movement upon traveler’s return but should monitor their health for COVID-19-related symptoms.

Component commands may implement transportation procedures for their personnel.

Non-SOFA affiliated international arrivals or short-term visitors shall follow all ROK entry requirements.

Please check with your supervisor or sponsor’s chain of command for more information.

MTF COVID-19 PCR contacts:
Please call to make arrangements for a PCR test or for hours of operation.
