According to Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang, China will have the first batch of ten provinces and cities to apply the “fast track” method. Korean enterprises in need will apply first and be approved after approval, relevant Korean personnel apply for a visa to China according to regulations. After passing the health monitoring and quarantine inspection, the isolation time after entering the country can be shortened, and the whole process will be effectively managed according to the closed-loop principle.
Geng Shuang also said that Chinese personnel going to South Korea who wish to apply for the “fast track” must apply for a visa from the South Korean embassy or consulate in China and apply for exemption from isolation at the same time. If they meet the requirements for approval from South Korea and before leaving the country, after entering the country, if the quarantine inspection is qualified, the quarantine can be exempted and the Korean dynamic epidemic prevention management can be accepted. Under the background of normalization of epidemic prevention and control, the establishment of a “fast track” between China and South Korea is a new initiative.
