Korea Enhances Employment Quota For Pakistanis

Ambassador of Korea to Pakistan, Mr. Suh Sangpyo recently announced that the Republic of Korea (South Korea) has decided to increase the employment quota for Pakistanis.

Before Covid, each year, 1,000 Pakistanis used to get the opportunity to work in Korea under the Employment Permit System (EPS); however, the program got suspended due to the pandemic. 

The good news is that now, not only the program has been resumed but the Government of Korea has also enhanced the quota from 1,000 to 1,500. 

According to Amb. Sangpyo, currently, there are 10,000 Pakistanis working in South Korea. 

If you want to apply for employment in Korea, this is probably the best time to reap benefits of this scheme.
