Nationals of China and travelers arriving from China must have visas to transit through South Korea.

South Korea has suspended visa exemptions for nationals of Japan, passengers with Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao passports.
Short-term visas (type C-1 and C-3) issued on or before April 5 are invalidated. Visa exemptions for 90 nationalities with normal passport are temporarily suspended, except for airline crew or passengers with an APEC Business Travel Card. Travelers with a visa on an expired passport must present a printed "Visa Grant Notice" and the expired passport to the immigration upon arrival.
Until January 7, direct flights from the UK are temporarily suspended.
Foreign nationals residing in South Korea on most types of long-term visa will need to apply for a re-entry permit at a local immigration office or at the airport before undertaking any travel out of South Korea. Those traveling with a re-entry permit will also be required to have a medical examination no earlier than 48 hours before they plan to return to South Korea, and to obtain a medical certificate in English or Korean demonstrating COVID-19 negative status.
All foreign travelers who have been in Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Philippines or Uzbekistan in the past 14 days must have a medical certificate with a negative Coronavirus (COVID-19) PCR test result issued at most 48 hours before arrival to enter South Korea.
From January 8, all foreign travelers must present a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued within 72 hours of their departure. Airlines will not board passengers without this negative PCR test result. Arriving passengers must submit the PCR test result on an original form issued by the testing center in the country of origin (in the English or Korean language) to quarantine authorities. Authorities will deny entry to individuals who do not fulfill this requirement. Policies regarding testing upon arrival and quarantine are unchanged by this announcement.
Merchant seamen with a visa must have a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued at most 48 hours before departure. The certificate must be in English and the passengers must have two copies of the certificate.
All flights must arrive at Incheon International Airport (ICN) between 5:00 am and 8:00 pm.
From December 10, short-term visitors must provide passport information to lodging facility owners, who must forward it to the Ministry of Justice. Failure to comply could result in a fine of 500,000 won (approximately $500). More information is available on hikorea.go.kr
All arriving passengers are required to download and respond to daily questions via a Self-Diagnosis Mobile App for 14 days.
Foreign travelers on short-term travel are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine at a government-designated facility, at their own expense. The nightly cost at these facilities could range from $100 to $150 USD per night (approximately $1,400-$2,100 USD total). Travelers that fall into this category will be required to sign a release form agreeing to these conditions prior to boarding a plane. Travelers who refuse to sign the form will be denied boarding. In some cases, Korean authorities have permitted immediate blood relatives or spouses of long-term residents to self-quarantine at their family’s home. For this, travelers would need to provide proof of relationship (e.g., marriage or birth certificate), and should understand that Korean immigration officials have the final authority to approve quarantine arrangements.
Travelers who are long-term or residential visa holders are required to self-quarantine at their own residences and must undergo a COVID test within 3 days. All travelers who exhibit symptoms will be required to undergo COVID-19 testing on arrival at the airport and may be subject to additional procedures.
Chinese nationals who are traveling on business under the Fast Lane program and their family members are exempt from the quarantine requirements; however, they must self-monitor their health conditions for at least 14 days before departure and must hold a medical certification of a negative COVID-19 testing result issued within 72 hours before departure. They will receive an additional test upon arrival, after which they must stay at a designated quarantine facility for up to 1-2 days until receiving the result. Once receiving a negative test result, they will be allowed to end their quarantine.
Nationals of Egypt, Mongolia, Russia, Sudan, Thailand and Yemen are restricted from transiting through South Korea on their way to or from those countries.
Most travelers transiting through Korean airports (who do not pass through immigration) have no quarantine requirement for stays less than 24 hours. However, transit passengers may need to undergo temperature checks or fill out health questionnaires. Transit passengers should confirm entry requirements at their onward destination. Symptomatic individuals will be subject to a COVID-19 test and hospitalization if found positive. Passengers who do not show symptoms and/or test negative may continue their journey. Please note, there are no COVID testing facilities available in airport transit areas.
Travelers should confirm with the airline(s) before departure that their bags have been checked through to their final destination (as transit passengers are not able to collect and re-check in baggage on arrival in Incheon Airport).

Pros: "Great service, clean cabin, tons of movies. Crews eager to care for passengers."
Cons: "Due to bad weather and flooding, I could not get to the airport for my flight. I called Just Fly and they said there was nothing they could do. I had to pay an extra $350 to get my flight rescheduled. I thought that due to bad weather, customers can get flight rescheduled at no extra cost? As soon as I rebooked my flight, both airport in Houston closed anyways. So is this still my fault and did I have to still pay an extra $350??"
Pros: "I was not expecting that it exceeded my expectations, it was better than my favorite airline. First time I ever eat all the food they served in an airline. The crew were excellent, they're always there- I don't know if they ever rested throughout the duration of the flight! Not to mention, they are all friendly."

Cons: "pet boarding --- there was a puppy on board who cried & cried. I am a dog lover. Please be mindful that, this flight from JFK, NY, to Seoul, Korea, was 13+ hours. I am very aware about the stress created upon pets from air travels. Yet, it is upon each pet owners to decide which pet might travel on board. This particular pet owner chose to let his/her pet cry out pet's stress + discomfort throughout the flight and annoy all passengers. Pet owner took no action, for example, gave no sedative to the pet or hold the pet to provide comfort or safety. I personally find such behavior irresponsible."

I took a 14.5 hour flight that felt like a 5 hour flight. Korean Air's attention to detail sets the bar for all airlines"
Cons: "Nothing negative what so ever."
Pros: "Good service and on time"

Pros: "Food not too bad, plenty of beverages."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "The service and food is good"

Pros: "The crew was great throughout the 12 hour flight, the entertainment was varied as always, the flight time for departure and arrival was almost spot on."
Cons: "Due to the fact that I didn’t know my gate number and that my bags were going straight to destination, I waited for all the bags to be dispensed at the carousel which never came. I later rushed through security check and told one of the officers that my connecting flight’s last call was in 15 min. She then placed me in front of 20-25 people. I was the last person to board the plane. All of this could have been avoided had the printing machine write my gate number and the ticketing crew tell me about my bag. They were too casual overall. I want United to give me a cash credit for my next flight. Every flight that I’ve taken with them has always had a hiccup on one leg of the flight or the other."
Pros: "My wife and I flew Lufthansa a good deal in the 1970s and 80s, we stopped in the early 90s because I was working with young people and had difficulties provided them with a non-smoking environment. This is the first time I have used Lufthansa since 1992. Based on the flights over and back, I believe we will start using it again."
Cons: "Experience with partner airlines is not as good as with Lufthansa directly. I mean, Austrian and United. They do not provide the same attention to detail, courtesy, or organization, particularly pre boarding and boarding."
Pros: "more room in the seats"
Cons: "movie choices were meh, but I guess that's a personal preference"
Pros: "Friendly crew, decent food, good entertainment options to make the flight feel shorter."
Pros: "Reached SFO safely. Thank God!"
Cons: "Awfully rude and uncaring cabin crew. Especially a guy named Eric. Bumped my shoulder with service cart when Zi was sleeping. Ignored me when I tried to catch his attention several times. Didn’t care a damn about offering a vegetarian meal/snack. Both times only available meal was non vegetarian. Normally the crew tries to accommodate and offer some options. But Eric said this was it...take it or leave it. Just so rude and uncaring. No entertainment in head rest in front. Internet was extremely spotty and the charging station would stop after some time automatically :("
Pros: "They find an option though TPE as I missed my connection in SFO."
Cons: "Had a middle seat while I need a window to sleep in the plane. Was wasted on arrival."
Pros: "The space on the plane, we left on timeand arrived early and I was able to sit by myself."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses spoke very harshly to me. I felt very embarrassed and offended."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the flight and the cordiality of the crew."
Cons: "I did not like the packaged meal. It was less than satisfactory. The sandwich was decent, however."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "I fly a lot. Other airlines do pretty much everything better. Only thing that was slightly better was the boarding process."
Cons: "12+ hour flight with no working outlet to charge phone or headphones. When I asked to move to a seat that had a charger, they basically said no - even though there were about 20 open seats in the next "economy class" level. So for 6 hours, after my phone died, I basically stared at the wall and then had no phone to assist with my directions or hotel reservations once we landed. Food was not good. Plane was old, and had a few random screens playing a movie that kept freezing and had to be restarted."
Pros: "Very couteous and helpful at gate"
Cons: "Delayed two hours which caused many travel problems"
Pros: "The flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "- United's entertainment system was not working again. The system was completely down. The plug-in power was also down. - Boarding was delayed because there were no crew members willing to help passengers figure out how to load the overhead bins."
Pros: "Had to cancel."
Cons: "WaIting for refund"
Pros: "Is goood"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "The crew at the gate as well as the crew on the plane were excellent and very helpful. The gate crew made rerouting very easy."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay made for an exceptionally long trip. Delays are so very common on United; especially when connecting through O'Hare."
Pros: "Everything was great all around"
Pros: "Fast no problems"
Pros: "Crew at counter n on plane were great. Perfect. Couldn't ask for more."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time"
Cons: "I did not like the absence of much food for breakfast on economy"
Pros: "I had a special meal and they were mindful to bring it and check that everything was okay."
Cons: "I downloaded the United app for entertainment but for some reason, I wasn't able to watch movies. It kept giving me an error. Make sure you download the app before the flight and that you have the latest version! At least they were playing movies and shows on the main screens."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "When we flew to Hawaii, there was a lot more comfort and space around us. My son flew on American and met us there, he had movies he could watch on screen in front of him, free cokes and snacks; we had water...no snacks....no movies....AND WE WERE REALLY CRAMPED....would not fly this airline again"
Pros: "The staff were very attentive to passengers and courteous."
Cons: "Nothing they did a Great job and keep a safe and exciting flight."
Pros: "I survived."
Cons: "Just before takeoff we had to abort and the crew slammed on the brakes. It was entirely frightening. We sat on the runway for a long time after that while the crew did not have clear answers for what was happening or why. Several things happened while we were on that plane that were unnerving for the passengers. So much so that at least one passenger threw up. Very scary. We did end up taking that plane on to our destination two hours later, but it was the worst flight experience of my life."
Cons: "One of the male flight attendants was rude. Never seen such an impolite flight attendant before. Tapped my shoulder from behind to ask what drink i wanted which freaked me out, refused to lend a pen to passengers sitting next to me saying they could borrow one from ME and loaded extra snack for strangers sitting next to me on my table without telling me what you to do with them - am i a sandwich distrubutor who is supposed to stay awake till other passengers wake up to eat snack? I almost thought he was a racist that refused to talk to people who seem to speak no English. If that's the case, he'd better learn other languages so he can actually COMMUNICATE with passengers."
Pros: "Delays, rudeness, doesn't have its act together. Must be United Airlines"
Pros: "Loved that the crew was attentive."
Cons: "I wanted to charge my device, no outlets available. No TV screen available for movies, just makes the time go by faster when I'm distracted."
Pros: "It was fine"
Pros: "Updates to phone and pre checkin"
Cons: "Flight crew unfriendly"
Cons: "My bag was misplaced after being gate checked, it ended up going to baggage claim, not a huge inconvenience, but after all our trouble with United, it was frustrating and we were tired and not interested in waiting for our bags (which is why we took carry on only in the first place)."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "A ok"
Pros: "On time, good service very attentive crew"
Cons: "Ice cream desert served was Toffee flavor, ugh..."
Pros: "Amazing service."
Cons: "Bag pricing for overweight."
Pros: "Flight and crew was great."
Cons: "Kids whose mother didn't seem to think it was appropriate to keep her damn kids quiet during basically an overnight flight, let them fight continuously, making noise and kicking the back of my seat even after repeated attempts at glaring at all of them. Really wish flight attendants would get more involved in these situations. Sigh."
Pros: "The welcoming feeling that I received from the flight attendants."
Cons: "There was a drunk man on the flight. He kept making so many disruptions."
Pros: "Very organized . On time"
Pros: "The fact that I had to rent a car and drive ... When I bought a flight ticket."
Cons: "Oh geez flight cancelled, what didn't I like?"
Pros: "Direct TV on the flight was limited to the channels available. While I like The Lego Movie, I would also prefer more choices."
Cons: "I am 5'10" and my knees were pressed into the seat in front of me for the entire trip. Essentially, I didn't fit in the seats."
Cons: "Comparable to a bus ride on a perilous dirt road in a third world country."
Pros: "I love to fly! Everyone with United was great. TSA was pleasant as well."
Pros: "The crew is courteous."
Cons: "We were on an older model plane designed for short trips so they typically aren't very comfotable and no food service or entertainment is offered."
Cons: "There was a long time delay. The inflight crew seemed to have an issue with helping you and when you did finally get a stewardess/steward, they will tell you to wait. No hot towel and almost an 8 hour wait to get your meal on a 13 hr flight!!!"
