COVID-19 Vaccination for Foreign residents
“The Ministry of Justice does not execute deportation and investigation
to encourage foreign nationals to be tested and get COVID vaccination“
- No information of illegal residents is relayed to immigration authorities -
Foreign nationals without a registration number (incl. illegal residents) can book their vaccination through a temporary
code, which can be obtained by presenting their passport at a healthcare centre.
Temporary code is issued to those holding an expired passport, expired residence card, (an) identification document(s)
issued by diplomatic missions in Korea or even in cases of their employer presenting such foreign nationals’ personal
details to relevant authorities.
