U.S. Citizen Services

Welcome to the American Citizen Services Unit of the Embassy of the United States in the Republic of Korea.  This website is updated daily and should be your primary resource when applying for a passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, notarization, or any of the other services we offer to U.S. citizens traveling, living, and working in Korea.  We also assist Americans facing emergency circumstances, including arrests, deaths and other crisis situations.

We encourage you to register your stay in Korea through the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) and receive our newsletter and email alerts, and “like” our Facebook page called “Americans in Korea.” Our goal is to reach all U.S. citizens in the Republic of Korea with current security information and other important updates.

Thank you for visiting our website.  Assisting Americans overseas is our highest priority, and we look forward to serving you.
