About Landscape

Korea Security Overview

Petty crime, specifically pickpocketing and snatching of handbags, often occurring in crowded markets and tourist areas, poses the main risks to visitors. Violent crime and physical attacks on foreigners, including sexual harassment, molestation, and rape, have occasionally been reported. Criminal activities occur more often in major metropolitan areas than elsewhere in the country.

Sexual assaults on Westerners occasionally occur in the nightclub districts of Seoul, particularly in Sinchon and Hongdae, where taxi drivers have been implicated. The crime rate in South Korea is very low, though robberies and burglaries do occur, and foreigners can be targeted, particularly in the capital Seoul.
