For foreigners who are working illegally in South Korea, the plan of sending them back home, which allows exemption of fines as well as relief of immigration restrictions, has been extended to the end of February, the Myanmar Embassy in South Korea announced.

The plan has been extended to February 29, 2024, the embassy said.

Those who wish to return home during the period will be exempt from fines as well as from restrictions on re-entering South Korea.

The Ministry of Justice of the Republic of South Korea made the extension of the plan and the Myanmar Embassy announced it on January 3.

The embassy said those who wish to return home can apply at the Immigration Department of the Republic of South Korea by showing a passport, a document proving that they want to go back home, and an air ticket.

More information can be found on the website of the Immigration Department of the Republic of South Korea.

“There are people who want to return home. They came here to work and are now overstaying for some reasons. They are saving money to go back home. They are cautious about arrests. We welcome this plan,” said a Myanmar national, Ko Tun Myint, in South Korea.
