The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Bangladesh is pleased to announce that it will resume receiving Korea entry visa applications from Bangladeshi nationals starting from 24 October, Sunday, 2021.
The decision to resume the visa process has been made in consideration of the improved COVID-19 situation in Bangladesh and the low number of COVID-19 positive cases among the Bangladeshi arrivals in Korea.
