S. Korea signs travel bubble with Palau; third country or region exempting self-quarantine Updated: 2021-11-17 21:14:31 KST

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 who have been fully vaccinated and provide a negative COVID-19 test can travel to a certain country without going through self-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 after Saipan and Singapore to have agreed a travel bubble with South Korea.
More than 10-thousand South Koreans visited Palau annually before the coronavirus outbreak.
