According to VisitKorea, Korea Tourism Organization’s official website, the percentage of confirmed cases among foreign tourists decreased from 1.3% in August to just 0.9% in September. With this, all COVID-19 limitations on incoming travelers will be lifted.

However, walk-ins are still not permitted in the South Korean embassy’s Taguig office. Applications submitted only through authorized travel agents will be taken into consideration.
