US Embassy in Seoul Running Normally Despite Partial Gov’t Shutdown


The U.S. Embassy in Seoul said yesterday that it is issuing visas and conducting other consular affairs normally, despite a partial government shutdown that started last week.

An embassy official said work related to passport and visa issuance will continue at the embassy, adding, (quote) “as of now, there isn’t anything that has changed due to the shutdown.

The official, however, said that if there are any measures related to the shutdown that will affect South Korean citizens’ travel to the U.S., the embassy will provide prompt notification.

The partial shutdown of the U.S. federal government began on Saturday local time after the White House and Congress failed to reach a compromise over a spending deal.
