Arrivals from Countries with Epidemics Must Fill in Forms

      August 03, 2016 13:14

      People coming from a country where an infectious disease rages will be required to fill in a new form on arrival here from Thursday. The Ministry of Health and Welfare announced the decision Tuesday.

      Until now, if they came here through a third country there was no need to submit any paperwork. Those failing to give correct information could be fined up to W10 million.

      The form must be filled out if the trip took place before the incubation period ends.

      The incubation period for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome is 14 days, for Cholera five days, and for yellow fever six days.
