Czech Foreign Ministry providing consular assistance during Winter Olympics

The Czech Foreign Ministry is broadening its services to provide assistance to Czechs visiting the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.

A consular department will be set up at the Czech House in Gangneung where Czech nationals can seek help in the event of unexpected problems such as theft of their documents, sickness or accidents.

The service will be available from February 7th to February 27th. A special helpline (+82 10 7445 6765) will be in operation around the clock.

The Czech Foreign Ministry further advises Czechs traveling to South Korea to register with the ministry’s travel data base DROZD which will facilitate assistance in the event of problems.
