We identified nine Verona integron-encoded metallo-β-lactamase-2 (VIM-2)-producing Acinetobacter nosocomialis (n = 8) and Acinetobacter seifertii (n = 1) isolates from South Korea and performed whole-plasmid sequencing for two A. nosocomialis isolates and one A. seifertii isolate. Genotyping, antibiotic resistance profiles, and whole plasmid sequences indicated clonal dissemination of the eight VIM-2–producing A. nosocomialis isolates. The plasmid-bearing blaVIM-2 in the A. seifertii isolate differed from those in the A. nosocomialis isolates.
