A trip from Vancouver, Canada to Busan, South Korea during Covid-19 crisis

As Covid-19 continues spreading all around the world, moving from one country to another, isn't easy as it sounds

International flights were getting increasingly rare during the outbreak of Covid-19, however we got the opportunity to fly from Vancouver, Canada to Busan, South Korea.

As soon as we landed in Incheon, we were forced to measure our temperatures and state where we were living.

Everyone was obligated to download “Self-quarantine Safety Protection App”, for the government to track our location to see if we were leaving our self quarantine area.

We were then guided by the Korean army to a designated bus for foreigners.

All domestic flights were canceled to lessen the probability of the virus spreading, so we were forced to take a train to our local city.

As soon as we arrived, we were obligated to take a test for Covid-19.

For people without personal vehicles, the government provided them with taxi-like vehicles called “Duribal”, which there was only five of forcing people to wait due to the first come first serve system.

After hours of exhausting and strict safety procedures, we were able to get to our homes. Traveling during a global pandemic isn’t really ideal for anybody.
