1.The reason you could decide to come to Korea in this situation

Staff: COVID-19 is still expanding around the world but wasn't it a big decision for you to come to Korea in this situation?

Ms.N: Some part, yes. But originally I was planning to come to Korea for working holiday from last March and I needed to postpone so I really wanted to come for a long time.  After considering the way, I decided to get a student visa instead of waiting for the working holiday visa.

Staff: I see, you changed the way to come here. I'm very happy to hear that you could come here finally!

2.How did you choose your quarantine place?

Staff: I guess there are some ways to decide the quarantine room but in your case, how did you decide?

Ms.N: I was planning to live in Borderless House and then I found the information about the quarantine room which Borderless House provides. So I just decided to use it. I could contact to the staff in Japanese so it was good point for me.

3.Any trouble in the airport?

Staff: Wasn't the process at the airport complicated? Were you able to enter to Korea smoothly?

Ms.N: I was able to proceed all process without any problem better than I expected. There was no staff who speaks Japanese but I could manage to communicate in Korean.

Staff: That's fantastic!

4.How was the transportation from the airport?

Ms.N: There were two ways, bus or taxi. When I told my address to a staff, there was a bus which will go to my destination area and will depart soon so I just took the bus. My arrival time was evening so I didn't go to have the PCR test on the day. On the next day, the bus came to my quarantine place again and took me to the place where I could have the test and took me to my place again after the test.

5.How was the self move in to the quarantine room?

Staff: When you move in to the quarantine by yourself without meeting any staff, wasn't there any difficulty?

Ms.N: No, I already received a manual book for self move in so I could just follow the information and move in without any problem!

(Most important goods, masks and sanitizer!)

6.What did you eat while quarantined?

Staff: In the 2 weeks, you cannot go outside at all but how did you prepare your meal and what did you eat?

Ms.N: I asked a staff to prepare some water bottles and food in the room in advance. I also bring some food from Japan and then I used delivery application a few times. I could use the credit card which I made in Japan.

7.Any tips for the 2 weeks?

Staff: To be honest, it is a bit hard to imagine the life in the quarantine room for 2 weeks but how was it actually? How did you spend your time there?

Ms.N: Originally I like spending time in my own room so I enjoyed watching dramas and youtube videos. Sometimes I felt boring and move around but it was fine.

Staff: Was there anything that you were careful?

Ms.N: It was easy to sleep late at night, or almost morning and wake up afternoon. So if you want to have a healthy life,  it is better to set alarm or decide to sleep at a fixed time intentionally.

Staff: Oh, that's true. If there is any plan to go outside for 2 weeks, I think I also become like that. Thank you for telling me the real life of the quarantine life!!

Ms.N: My pleasure. Thank you!
