South Korea now allows visa-free entry through Yangyang International Airport, 158 kilometers from Seoul, from the new Clark International Airport (CRK).

This developed as South Korean low cost carrier, Fly Gangwon, will operate flights from CRK direct to Yangyang International Airport (YNY) starting June 25. Clark is Fly Gangwon’s first Philippine destination and only operates in CRK.

Travelers arriving through Yangyang International airport can visit Gangwon and Seoul City center for up to 15 days under the Visa Waiver Program with restrictions.

They must travel in groups of minimum of 5 or travel with 15 passengers for a cheaper package through a designated travel agency.

Filipino interest over Korean culture has soared in recent years and South Korea has risen as a dream tourism destination for many Filipinos.

Flying through Yangyang International Airport (YNY), Filipinos can experience the South Korean countryside.

It's close to Naksan Beach and has direct access to Incheon.

The package is part of a visa-waiver program which was reinstated after being suspended for more than two years because of the pandemic.

Now that COVID-19 cases are dropping in South Korea, the country has decided to relax its border restrictions by exempting fully vaccinated visitors from mandatory quarantine starting Wednesday, June 1, 2022.

Travel restrictions are easing up, not just in Korea but also in other countries as well.

Clark International Airport's New Terminal is ready to welcome the influx of passengers, according to the Luzon International Premiere Airport Development (LIPAD), which manages and operates the infrastructure.

Passengers from North Luzon, Metro Manila, and other areas may access the airport through available Point-to-Point arrangements and other transport alternatives.

The terminal features contactless systems, such as self-check-in kiosks and self-service baggage counters.
