【Reasonable Quarantine】 Staying in Korea with Borderless quarantine support!
Hello, this is Borderless House Seoul.
Currently in Korea, It is required to be quarantined for 2 weeks for all people landed from other countries as a countermeasure against COVID-19.
People from other countries have to be quarantined at their home or the place which government prepared for 2 weeks and it is not allowed to use common facilities like Goshiwon or students dormitory (with certain exceptions).
Borderless House is a share house and tenants share living room and bathroom, so we also ask our new tenants to move in after 2-weeks quarantine.
Arranging the quarantine place and every meal for 2 weeks cost a lot and it is a big burden.
Therefore, we decided to launch a new special service which you can reserve an accommodation for quarantine in Seoul and our share house at the same time!
Detail of the New Service
You can reserve the place for quarantine together when you reserve a room in Borderless House. We try to find a room which has good options and help you from the arrangement of quarantine and to move in our share house in total!
