Word from the Ambassador 

I am pleased and honored to welcome you on the website of the Embassy of the State of Qatar to the Republic of Korea, which we hope it will be a valuable communication channel between the embassy and Qatari citizens who wish to obtain any pertinent, useful   and available information about Korea in various fields.

The relations between the State of Qatar and the Republic of Korea started since Qatar’s independence in 1974 but has only taken the present actual shape of development after the State of Qatar opened its embassy in Seoul in 1992. Since then  those relationships began to develop  at a quick , regular , consistent and integral pace,  as can be seen in the large and accumulative  number of agreements and memorandum of understanding reached and signed  between the two countries in various fields during the visit of His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, "may God protect him" in January 2019.

The development of the Korean Qatari relations at that fast and steady growing tone is a natural result of the commendable efforts of Their Excellency the successive Qatari ambassadors in Korea who alternated to develop those relationships. Thanks to all these diligent efforts the Qatari -Korean relations have been moving at a solidly consistent manner and   a progressive way toward reaching an effective strategic and mutually beneficial 44 years old   partnership relationship.

I hope that you will find the Website informative, helpful and true to its objective. We will do our best to continuously update and improve it in shape and contents and keep it to your expectations.

Thank you.
