Liberalization of overseas travel +

1981.8.1
Effective Date
From August 1, 1981, the Enforcement Decree of the Passport Act, which aims to liberalize overseas travel, was implemented.

The revised enforcement ordinance of the Passport Act, which was revised in line with the expansion of national power and international exchanges, calls for expanding the scope of permission for overseas travel and simplifying the passport application process.

Single and multiple passports have been removed, and married couples travel abroad and age restrictions have been abolished.

The full liberalization of overseas travel took place in 1989, when the confidence of successfully hosting the 1988 Seoul Olympics and the internationalization through the Olympics increased demand for overseas travel.
