U.S. Forces Korea aligns with Republic of Korea for arrival policy

By USFK Public Affairs U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys

In order to align with Republic of Korea entry requirement changes, U.S. Forces Korea has implemented the following changes for SOFA-affiliated arrivals beginning July 25:

  • Regardless of vaccination status, all arrivals 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.
