South Korea eased restrictions and allowed entry of OFWs, DOLE confirmed

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) will begin processing to send overseas Filipino workers to neighboring countries in Asia-such as South Korea.

“This is a very good news not only to our EPS (entry permit system) workers and their families, but also to the Korean employers who have been waiting for our workers to return,” said Department of Labor and Employment Secretary Silvetre Bello III.

South Korea’s Ministry of Employment and Labor (MOEL) announced that it will allow the entry into their country of workers under the EPS from various countries, including the Philippines.

Under the South Korea's MOEL directive, the requirement for workers includes full vaccination, and a negative RT-PCR test result. Post-entry measures also include mandatory quarantine and RT-PCR testing.

The Korean embassy in the Philippines is just waiting for the policy from their government for the issuance of E9 visas to Filipino EPS.

This is certainly a good news to the thousands of workers who have been waiting to be able to go abroad since last year.
