South Korea is opening again its doors to Filipino tourists starting next month as the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic there became stable. 

The South Korean Embassy in Manila, which made the announcement on Thursday, said the government will again launch the issuance of short-term tourist visa (C-39) and other visas on June 1. 

Tourists under a C-39 visa can enter South Korea and stay for up to 90 days. 

The Embassy added that people with unexpired multiple visas issued before April 5, 2020 may be used without re-application. 

Starting June 1, submission of consent for isolation is also not required anymore. 

Soon to be released are the procedure for visa application and other information needed.
