Korea will now permit children on Dependent Visas to work in the nation. The recommendation for this was made by the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission. It had advised the Government of Korea to find out ways for implementing the measure.
The Commission had advised the government to permit graduates of high school multiethnic families to obtain jobs. This is even before they obtain Korean Citizenship.
There were some 9,800 children overseas born who had moved to Korea after their mother or father married a Korean citizen. Alternatively, they were naturalized as a Korean, as per the Commission.
Such children pass the naturalization exam under the age of 19. Still, it takes them more than a year prior to becoming a Korean national. This often bars them from being employed. It is even if they get a job offer after graduating from High School, as quoted by the Korea Herald.
The unmarried children possess Dependent Visas. They are not lawfully permitted to engage in activities apart from staying in Korea.
The Commission said that the Government will now take the required measures. It will permit prospective graduates from high school in Korea to engage in job activities. This is for those who obtain state-accredited service or technical services. They must have also passed the test for naturalization.
An official of the ACRC said that children who like to get naturalized as Korean citizens like their parents can work early. This should assist multi-ethnic families to settle in Korea, said the official.
