In an attempt to attract more international tourism, the Korean government will refund the country's 10% hotel tax to visitors.
The incentive, which began on April 1 and will remain in effect for one year, applies to international visitors who stay in a hotel for more than two nights but fewer than 30, according to the Korea Tourism Organization in New York.
Travelers who book and pay for hotels through tour packages are not eligible for the tax refund.
The refund will cover the tax on a room rate that includes breakfast, but not taxes on other hotel charges.
In order to receive the refund, tourists must present a Hotel Tax Refund Form, which they will get from their hotel or at designated duty-free zones in Korea.
The forms must be completed prior to leaving the country; the refund cannot be retroactively redeemed.
