Some Myanmar MoU workers sent to South Korea were seen at Yangon International Airport in November 2022.

A total of 720 Myanmar workers were recruited in the Republic of Korea through the Employment Permit System (EPS) in November this year, according to a statement of Myanmar’s Embassy in Seoul.
The numbers of legal MoU workers sent to the ROK were 149 on 29 November, 110 on 24 November, 126 on 17 November, 148 on 15 November, 51 on 10 November, 27 on 3 November and 109 on 1 November respectively.
Those workers are new workers and experienced ones with re-entry permits engaged in manufacturing, construction, agriculture and livestock businesses.
The labour attaché of Myanmar Embassy in Seoul welcomed them at the Incheon Airport and directed them the dos and don’ts and work etiquette and provided the needs.
More than 37,000 people are expected to take the EPS-TOPIK (Employment Permit System) qualification test which is held from end-September 2022 to mid-2023 in the respective batch.
At present, there are over 50,000 migrant workers legally working in Korea. And more workers are to join them monthly.
The first batch for the manufacturing job test will be held between 31 October and 29 December. Between 3 January and 3 April 2023, the second batch of entry exam for manufacturing jobs will be held. Those who want to join construction jobs can take the exam between 17 April and 15 May 2023.
Employers in Korea recruit potential candidates among those who passed the EPS-TOPIK test, according to POEA.
At present, the government of South Korea is continuously recruiting new workers and experienced workers.
The minimum wage in South Korea stood at 9,000 Won per hour in 2022. As there are employment protection legislations in South Korea, local people are keen on hunting jobs in South Korea, the Ministry of Labour stated.—TWA/EMM
