SEOUL: The South Korean government has decided to extend the visa term of foreign citizens by three months.

This will apply to foreign nationals whose visa term has already expired or is on the verge of expiration.

The Ministry of Justice in Seoul said the decision has been taken targeting foreign nationals for whom it is impossible to return to their home country due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Nepali citizens who are in Korea and whose visa term has expired or is on the verge of so would also benefited with this decision.

It is said that the visa term of 60,000 foreign workers in South Korea is expiring by May-end and this decision is specially targeted to these workers.

This is the second time the visa term has been extended for the foreign workers here.

Before this, the South Korean government had extended the visa term by 50 days in February.

One hundred and thirty thousand foreign nationals, including Nepalis, had benefited from this decision.

With this decision, those who had extended their visa term last time can also apply for visa extension.

However, it is said the bearers of E-9 and E-10 visas can have their visa term extended only after confirming about their country’s situation. Currently, the government here has suspended issuing all types of visas.

The foreigners who want a visa term extension can visit the website, www.hikorea.go.kr or call 1345 for additional information.
