Vietnamese workers receive one-year extension of stay in RoK


SEOUL — The Republic of Korea (RoK) on Tuesday announced a decision to extend the period of stay for about 115,000 foreign migrant workers, including those from Việt Nam, by one year in a bid to relieve labour shortages at small businesses and in farming and fishing sectors.

The temporary extension of stay will apply to the E-9 non-professional employment and H-2 visiting employment visa holders, whose period of staying and working in the RoK is set to expire between April 13 and December 31.

The steep reductions in E-9 and H-2 visa holders have worsened labour shortages at small and medium-sized companies and in farming and fishing villages. —VNS
