The tasks of the embassy 

The opening of the new Embassy building in 2019 was a moment of genuine joy, a celebration we shall always remember! In order to commemorate the first anniversary of these events, we would like to share with you a short video on this very special year. 

Warning to future students and interns in Korea

The Embassy was informed by some students and interns that they were victims of fraud while trying to rent a studio or flat in Seoul. Therefore, if you rent an apartment, please do not make any advance payments. Payments should only be made when you move into the rented property. Otherwise, you may be caught by fraudsters and lose your money.
