South Korea

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


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]


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]
