2021 Foreign Policy Implementation Plan

Amid concerns over labor shortages due to the ‘Dead Cross' phenomenon, where the population is declining due to fewer births than the deceased, the Korean government has decided to actively utilize foreign workers.

On the 31st of March, the Korean government deliberated and decided on the '2021 Foreign Policy Implementation Plan' at the 25th Foreign Policy Committee hosted by Prime Minister Jeong Sye-gyun at the Government Complex in Seoul on the 31st of March, today. 

At the meeting on this day, the focus was on how to utilize human resources for foreigners.

It is also planning to expand the entry of E-9 visa holding foreign workers to countries with good quarantine conditions, such as Laos and Cambodia.

In addition, it plans to increase the types of jobs that international students (D-2 visa) can find employment in, and double the quota for points based skilled workers visa (E7-4 visa), which is around 2,000 per year by 2025.

In order to solve the situation where 66% of foreigners in Korea are concentrated in the metropolitan areas, a local-specific long-term visa will be introduced.

D10-1 VISA, Job Seeking VISA, Internship Period related New Information

D10-1 VISA, Job Seeking VISA, Internship Period related New Information


Immigration policies are changing too quickly, and it is so difficult to check which part of the visa has been changing.

We are notifying you of recent changes regarding internships with D10-1 visa.

Originally, international students who graduated from domestic universities can stay in Korea and find a job for up to 2 years after changing their D10-1 visa from D-2 visa.

However, as a result of a recent check, if you worked in Korea on E7-1 visa and then do an internship with D10-1 visa, or if you graduated from a domestic university and engage in internship activities with D10-1 visa, the internship period shall be totally within 6 months even though your D10-1 visa period remains.  

It means after 6 months later as an Internship with D10-1 visa, there is no more internship period left, and you shall find a company to apply for E7-1 visa to work in Korea. 

Please refer to this information and hope that there is no disadvantage for you missing this information.

(*For reference, in the previous internship guidelines, it was able to do internships for a maximum of 6 months in one company and the duration of D10-1 visa.)

출입국 정책들이 너무 빠르게 변화하고 있고, 어떤 비자부분이 변화되고 있는지도 확인하기 힘들 정도로 어렵게 변하고 있습니다. 

최근에 인턴십에 관한 변경사항이 있어서 알려드립니다.

원래 국내 대학교를 졸업한 유학생은 구직비자인 D10-1비자 변경 후 최장 2년간 거주하면서 구직을 할 수 있었습니다.

그런데, 최근에 확인해 본 결과, 국내에서 E7-1비자 등으로 근무하다 D10-1비자로 인턴십을 하거나 국내 대학교를 졸업하고 인턴십 활동을 하는 경우, 그 인턴십 기간은 총 6개월 이내여야 한다고 합니다.

즉, D10-1비자 기간이 남아 있더라도 인턴십을 할 수 있는 기간은 최대 6개월 이라는 점 양지 바랍니다. 

이점 참고하셔서 불이익한 부분이 없기를 바랍니다.

(*참고로 이전의 인턴십은 한 회사에서 최대 6개월, 그리고 D10-1비자가 남아있는 기간동안 인턴십을 할 수 있었습니다.)
