Welcome to the web site of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to Jamaica.


Korea and Jamaica have been fostering the friendly relationships since the year of 1962 when the two countries established diplomatic ties just after Jamaica’s independence.

I hope that this web site will help to enhance a better understanding of each other.
