VOV.VN - The Republic of Korea (RoK) permitted the entry of approximately 100 Vietnamese guest workers at Incheon International Airport on March 17 following the East Asian country reopening its border to foreign workers.
This is the highest number of migrant workers entering the RoK since it resumed receiving Vietnamese workers under the Employment System (EPS) in May, 2021, after a period of suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The RoK Government has also lifted entry restrictions that had previously been placed on the number of people entering its borders as it strives to adapt to the plan of safely living with the pandemic.
Accordingly, foreign workers from all countries will be allowed to enter the RoK, providing that they have been fully vaccinated and have a negative PCR test result 48 hours before departure.
As of April 1, the RoK will be implementing new entry regulations, with vaccinated workers not being subject to medical isolation.
In line with this policy, the number of Vietnamese workers entering the RoK under the EPS programme will continue to increase moving forward. The RoK currently represents a key Vietnamese labour export market.
