The Republic of Korea (RoK)’s government would consider the possibility of granting multiple exit/entry visa to both Vietnamese and Korean citizens, said RoK Ambassador to Vietnam Jun Dae Joo.

The move aims to facilitate trade and investment activities and promote the relationship between the two countries, added the diplomat during his visit to the Lao dong (Labour) newspaper in Hanoi on November 5.

He also said during RoK President Park Geun-hye’s visit to Vietnam from September 7 to 11, Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang and his counterpart Park Geun-hye had agreed to boost multi-faceted cooperation between the two countries, including labour cooperation.

Vietnam and the RoK signed their first memorandum of understanding on guest workers under the Korea Employment Permit System (EPS) in 2004, and extended it every two years. However, RoK ceased accepting new Vietnamese workers in August 2012../.
