For those that are used to rushing to airports before the final boarding call this news could be in handy.
South Korea is now providing emergency passports to citizens who need them at a greater number of locations around the world.
These are for people who are either overseas and have lost their passports or are here in the country but urgently need to visit family abroad in case of death or severe illness or injury.
Emergency passports can now be issued at 66 different locations here in Korea, up from 18, including district offices, city halls and at the airport.
They're also now available at 181 consular offices around the world.
And they've been redesigned to make them more secure.
