South Korea says it will seek to accelerate talks on quarantine-free travel bubble agreements with several countries, including Taiwan.

Seoul hopes the bubble agreements will enable group tours for people who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus from as early as July.

South Korea is seeking agreements with Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Guam and Saipan and official talks regarding the travel bubble will begin soon.

According to officials in Seoul, once a travel bubble is formed, South Korea will initially allow one or two flights a week, carrying up to 200 passengers.

Health minister Chen Shih-chung says if Taiwan is selected as one of South Korea's travel bubble choices, then Taiwan "should adhere" to its "disease prevention regulations."
