    19일부터 주한미국대사관의 비자업무가 전면중단된다.


    주한미국 대사관은 우한코로나바이러스 유행에 대응하고자 주한미국대사관에서는 2020년 3월 19일을 기하여 이민·비이민 비자 발급을 위한 정규 인터뷰 일정을 취소한다고 밝혔다.


    다만 미국 시민을 대상으로 한 서비스는 정상 운영된다.

    이와는 별도로 해리스 주한미국대사는 한국내 거주하고있는 미국인들에게 공개메시지를 남기고 우한바이러스 사태와 관련 한국 정부와 긴밀히 협조하며 주한미국민들의 안전을 세심히 살필것이라고 밝혔다. 



    Dear Fellow American Citizens in the Republic of Korea,

    As the Korean Government continues its comprehensive and aggressive fight against COVID-19,  which we strongly support, I would like to reassure you that the U.S. Embassy remains open and operational to meet our highest priority, which is the welfare and safety of U.S. citizens in this country.

    The U.S. Embassy team in Seoul is actively engaged with Republic of Korea health authorities, such as the Korea Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (KCDC) and with hospitals and health facilities around the country.  We are also coordinating closely with U.S. Forces Korea and consult daily with a range of U.S. agencies both here and in the United States to ensure we are current with latest developments and guidance with respect to the fight against the virus.

    Please remember to check our Embassy website (https://kr.usembassy.gov/022420-covid-19-information/) as well as the CDC’s website (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) for the most up-to-date information on COVID-19, and do continue to monitor Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) for notifications and messages like this one.  And one more ask – please share the word about the STEP program and the Embassy website to other Americans you know or might meet who are unaware of them.  Our consular team at the Embassy is working around the clock to keep U.S. travelers to the Republic of Korea informed of the risks related to COVID-19 and measures to take to reduce those risks, to assist Americans in need, and to combat the spread of this outbreak.

    My team and I, including our Consulate in Busan, look forward to continuing to be of service to the large American community in the Republic of Korea.


    Harry Harris
    United States Ambassador to the Republic of Korea
