Korea revises visa policies

"The new rule will not only help the industry in finding workers but also universities in need of international students amid a rapidly decreasing number of local students," a trade ministry official said.

"We will strengthen monitoring and supervision of irregularities involving visa stays, among those who are suspected of abusing the immigration system so as to help increase the effectiveness of the revision."

Companies welcomed the rule. "The rule will contribute to mitigating the labor shortage in the industry, thereby helping local businesses regain the global top market player status," said a spokesperson for a local shipbuilder.
