The Department of of Overseas Labor Management, under the Ministry of Labours, Invalid and Social Affairs (MoLiSA) reports, in 2018, Korean plans to give permission to 3,500 Vietnamese workers in the manufacturing sectors, excluding agriculture and aquaculture.

In more details, the Department has stepped up propaganda programme in both Vietnam and Korea to urge Vietnamese workers in Korea to voluntarily timely return home, support these workers when they come home, and strictly punish violators and strengthening the management of workers in the RoK./.
