Employment agencies expect to begin sending seasonal workers to South Korea in March 2024

Overseas employment agencies have expected to begin the sending of seasonal workers to South Korea in March 2024, said an official from an agency.

Under the process of dispatching seasonal workers, Memorandum of Understanding is required to sign first between Myanmar local government and South Korea local government with the approval of the South Korean Ministry of Justice, according to the Ministry of Labour.

The signing has been prepared to make with respective provinces, mayors, administrators from South Korea and Myanmar’s Labour Affairs Minister from region and state governments and the Nay Pyi Taw Council, as well as regional and state staff officers from Department of Labour under the Ministry of Labour.

“The sending has yet to start. We need to do it not before March or April 2024. If we are late, we will have to wait more years,” said the official.

The seasonal job is a short-term employment on the basis of 8-month work, 4-month break and wage is approximately 20 million. This is a plan to provide many job opportunities for young people in Myanmar as well as a chance to learn South Korea’s agricultural technologies, according to Myanmar Overseas Employment Agencies Federation (MOEAF).

“The seasonal workers work 8 months and break 4 months because the 4-month break period is very cool and people can’t work. They can go again after the break. It is reportedly known that they can earn nearly 20million during 8 months,” said MOEAF’s official.

The Ministry of Labour said it has instructed respective agencies to supervise workers not to run, overstay and not being sent back, to prevent the country’s image get damaged.

“The wage is higher than regional countries’. Besides, this job can help the people’s livelihood and their living standards to be improved, that is why we want to send seasonal workers for the sake of their interest. Through authorized overseas recruitment agencies, governments of provinces, districts and mayors from South Korea have offered the plan of sending seasonal agricultural workers under MoU,” said an official from the Ministry of Labour.
