New E-9 and H-2 visa extensions

3-51p 


The Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Korea and the Ministry of Employment and Labor are extending applicable visas. E-9 and H-2 visa holders, with visas expiring this year, are encouraged to talk with their employers.

 E-9 (non-professional employment), H-2 (working visit) visas and foreign workers who have already received a 50-day extension of employment last year are also eligible for a one-year extension. 

 The government will extend the visas of eligible foreign workers without requiring individual ext-ensions. However, the employer must report an extension of the labor contract period and employment period with the labor department.

 Extension details and inquiries can be found by checking the immigration website (hikorea.go.kr).
