Disabled access

The British Embassy in Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is keen to ensure that its buildings and services are fully accessible to disabled members of the public.

Wherever possible, we have made our buildings and services accessible. Sometimes, however, this is not possible due to security or other restrictions. In these situations we will endeavour to provide a service or access to a building in an alternative way to ensure equality of access for disabled people. Please contact us if you require disabled access and we will make alternative arrangements.
