Amid the pandemic, South Korean tourists can now freely travel to Palau an island country in the western Pacific Ocean.
The two countries have agreed on a "travel bubble" which means that people fully vaccinated and can provide a negative COVID-19 test can travel to a certain country without going through quarantine.
According to Seoul's foreign ministry, ministers from both countries held a virtual meeting on Tuesday, concluding that the new policy can begin in stages.
The start date will be announced after the details are ironed out.
Palau is the third region or country to have agreed a travel bubble with South Korea after Saipan and Singapore.
More than 10-thousand South Koreans visited Palau annually before the coronavirus outbreak.
