Austrian-South Korean relations are foreign relations between Austria and South Korea. Diplomatic relations between the two countries were established on May 22, 1963.

Missions[edit]

Austria has an embassy in Seoul and an honorary consulate in Busan. South Korea has an embassy in Vienna and 4 honorary consulates (in Graz, Klagenfurt, Linz and Salzburg).[citation needed] The Austrian embassy in Seoul is located in the same building as the Australian embassy, often leading to misdelivered mail and confused visitors.[1]

Trade[edit]

In 2007, South Korea was Austria's fourth-largest non-European Union trading partner. Two way trade was valued at about US$1.8 billion that year.[1]

Bilateral visits[edit]

In April 2007, the President of Austria Heinz Fischer paid a state visit to South Korea. It was the first ever state visit of an Austrian President to the republic.[2]
