※ The Consulate is not responsible for a lost or damaged mail.
※ Beginning December 1st, 2022, the Korean Consulate in San Francisco will only accept packages from USPS. This applies to not only visa submissions but also for a self-addressed return envelope (No other couriers such as FedEx, UPS, etc.) We will return the application without processing it if it sent by any other courier. There will be a grace period (acceptance of FedEx, UPS, etc.) until December 31, 2022.
