SEOUL :

 South Korea's Minister of Foreign Affairs extended its special travel consultation in the wake of the resurgent outbreaks of coronavirus to all countries and territories, except for those already subject to further restrictions.

The latest measure, which recommends against traveling overseas, will remain valid until Sept 18.

The extension was given by the present consultation, published on Wednesday on 20 June following the first COVID-19 consultation from 23 March to 19 June.

The Ministry said that it decided to continue advisory services as the virus continues to spread around the world, local transmissions and imported cases increased and foreign country entry restrictions applied.

During the special travel advisory, we call on citizens to cancel or postpone their plans to travel overseas, and on those abroad to ensure that they will not be exposed to COVID-19 infection," the ministry said in a press release.

Barring any notice on another extension, the latest advisory is set to be automatically lifted on Sept 19.
