S. Korea to hike limit on duty-free allowance for int'l arrivals before Chuseok Updated: 2022-08-05 16:59:04 KST

Travelers arriving in South Korea will soon be able to bring more purchases into the country duty-free.
The Finance Ministry announced Friday that the limit on duty-free purchases will be increased from the current 6-hundred U.S. dollars per person to 8-hundred dollars.
It's the first time the limit's been raised in eight years.
The government cited the fact that incomes have gone up.
People will also be able to bring in up to two bottles of alcohol instead of just one.
The new limit will take effect some time before the Korean Thanksgiving holiday, Chuseok, which starts on September 9th.
