For Dutch students enrolled in Korean higher education institutions or in student exchange programmes

Dear Dutch students in South Korea,

You have probably heard that The European Union will close its borders to all non-essential travel due to COVID-19 (coronavirus). EU citizens however can return home.

We heard from many of Dutch students already, asking if it’s best to go home or not. We would like that you refer to Travel Advice South Korea (Reisadvies Zuid-Korea) and FAQ about the travel advice. 

In addition to travel advice, for the latest news from Dutch embassy in Seoul with regards to COVID-19, you may visit




Should you decide to return to the Netherlands, do not forget to inform your university. If you know other students from the Netherlands, please pass them this message. 

If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact us via or via 010-5199-1948, 010-6336-7206.
Best regards,
Neso Korea chief representative officer
