Consular visit to Seoul

From November 1st to November 3, 2018 the Embassy of the Republic of Cameroon in Japan undertook a duty trip to Seoul, in relation to complaints by compatriots in Korea facing challenges in the renewal of their expired passports.

As confirmed by our Honorary Consulate in Seoul, over fifty Cameroonians were urgently in need to renew their passports following an amendment of the procedures for the extension of residence permits in Korea. While in the past, the pass issued by the Consulate allowed the citizens to renew their residence permits despite the expiry of their passports, the possession of a valid passport is now required.

A total of fifty-five applications for the issuance of new passports which are more or less compliant with the relevant requirements have been accepted.
