The foreign ministry has again extended its special advisory recommending South Korean citizens avoid overseas travel due to COVID-19.
The advisory, now effective until November 13, calls on people to cancel or postpone their trips, while advising nationals living abroad to take extra precaution such as minimizing contact with others.
The government first implemented the travel advice in March 2020, during the first wave of the pandemic.
Recently, there has been talk of easing related guidance as travel curbs are being lifted around the world.
The ministry said it plans to continue monitoring the coronavirus situation at home and abroad, including vaccination rates, before considering any changes.
