There are Filipinos looking for work abroad. A lot of the jobs available overseas require a placement fee and an agency BUT not in South Korea. For Filipinos who want to work in the country, here is the updated process. Before 2017, applicants only need to pass the EPS-TOPIK or the Korean language test to qualify. This year, the POINT SYSTEM has been adopted and hiring will be based on the applicant’s score in EPS-TOPIK, Skills Test, and Work Experience (and Training).
First check if you qualify ~
~ 18 to 38 years old
~ no record of overstaying in Korea
~ physically fit
~ no amputations (complete fingers)
~ no color blindness or weakness
~ no TB
~ no criminal record
Remember that NO AGENCY is required as the process is by GOVERNMENT TO GOVERNMENT. THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS TO THE PROCESS.
First, learn Korean language. You could do this through a Korean language center or on your own, by self study. There are FREE KOREAN LESSONS on the internet.
Second, wait for the POEA’s announcement to register. The registration for the Korean test or EPS-TOPIK is ONLY ONCE A YEAR. This happens in late January or early February so from now, interested applicants will have the time to prepare for the Korean language test.
The test is usually given in March or April. After the Korean language test, the successful applicant also has to pass the SKILLS TEST (this started in 2017).
