The Immigration Management Agency of the Republic of Korea (RoK) has announced plans to offer a 50-day automatic stay extension period for foreign migrant workers in accordance with the Employment Permit System (EPS) programme, reported the Department of Overseas Labour.

In line with the scheme, foreign workers whose labour contracts expire between December 1, 2020, and January 31, 2021, and who meet all working conditions and regulations regarding residence, will have their visa automatically extended for a period of 50 days. This will allow foreign labourers to extend their visas without needing to conduct procedures at the RoK’s Immigration Management Agency.

Due to the implementation of the plan, Vietnamese workers have been urged to visit hikorea.go.kr in order to check information on their automatic extension of residence, or alternatively go to their nearest Immigration Management Agency so they can fill in the declaration form regarding visa extension.

Due to the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 virus, the RoK government recommended that guest workers raise their awareness about epidemic prevention measures and follow relevant regulations. VOV
