A special travel advisory that has been in place since March due to the coronavirus pandemic has again been extended for another month.
The foreign ministry announced Friday that the current advisory, which was to expire on Sunday, will be maintained until November 17.
The alert was first issued on March 23 and has been extended every month amid a standstill in international travel due to restrictions in each country and airlines suspending flights.
South Koreans who are planning to travel overseas are being urged by the government to either cancel or postpone their trips.
Korean nationals abroad should also take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, such as limiting movement and minimizing contact with others.
