No entry ban on voluntary exit

UPDATES BELOW

It has been reported that the Immigration Office in South Korea is holding a “crackdown” on illegal immigrants from March to May. An illegal immigrant who is caught and deported will not be able to return to Korea until after 5 years.

However, Korea Times reported yesterday, March 27, that the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) announced that there will be a temporary exemption on the entry ban on illegal immigrants who will voluntarily exit Korea from April 1 to September 30. They only need to have a valid passport and airline ticket and report to the Immigration Office at the airport during the period stated.

The MOJ said that there are currently 1,899,000 foreigners staying in Korea. Of this number, it is estimated that about 214,000 are illegally residing in the country.

In Korean news though, it was also stated that illegal immigrants who committed heavy crimes will not benefit from this exemption. In the future, the MOJ will file criminal chargers for employers of illegal immigrants and a five-year entry ban for the worker.

In Filipino:

Noong isang linggo ay naiulat ng mga kababayan natin sa Korea na merong crackdown ang Immigration Office sa mga illegal o TNT. Pag nahuli at napa-deport, hindi pwedeng bumalik sa Korea sa loob ng limang taon.

Kahapon sa Korea Times, nai-report na ang Ministry of Justice o MOJ ay nag-announce na ang mga TNT na boluntaryong aalis ng bansa mula April 1 hangang September 30 ay hindi kasali sa “entry ban” ~ at maaari silang bumalik ng Korea ng hindi kailangan maghintay ng limang taon. Basta boluntaryo ang pag-uwi.

Kung balak umuwi mula April 1 hangang September 30, dalhin ang passport (na hindi expired!) at airline ticket at pumunta sa Immigration Office ng airport sa araw na uuwi.

Ang hindi nabanggit sa Korea Times pero nakalagay sa ibang news site sa Korean ~ na hindi kasama sa exemption ang mga may criminal record. Ang NO ENTRY BAN ay para lamang sa mga uuwi sa pagitan ng Abril 1 hangang Setyembre 30. Patuloy pa rin ang crackdown ng MOJ sa mga TNT. Kung nahuli at na-deport, may ban pa rin ng limang taon.

                  Kung uuwi bago matapos ang amnesty, pwede mag-apply ng F-6 visa at mga three months ang hihintayin bago makabalik uli.

    Good! I am legally in the Republic, working and contributing to the Korean economy, and I properly renew my Visa before it expires each year. I fully agree with the Korean government with disallowing illegal immigrants from returning to the Republic for five years. If you illegal immigrants can’t follow the rules of immigration, then you need to leave Korea. Korea is being nice about it; have a valid passport and a plane ticket to depart the country (I am guessing this will also apply if one takes the ferry to Japan). In the U.S.A. the immigration officers will handcuff, arrest, and then deport an illegal immigrant.

    I know of a many Filipinos who are illegally in the Republic: several Filipinas are located in Songt’an (outside of Osan Air Base), in An Jung Ri (outside of Camp Humphreys), in Dongduch’on (outside of Camp Casey), and in A-Town (outside of Kunsan Air Base). Yes, some of these women are legally in the country but they are not working in the job position as stated in their Visa.

    Please, Korean Immigration: Check these areas for illegal immigrants and deport them in accordance to your immigration laws. These illegal Filipinos and Filipinas need to leave here and return to the Philippines and work there.

      She needs to buy an outward ticket to her home country. Go to the Immigration Office at the aiport (Departure Area ~ 3rd floor) and tell them that she is going home voluntarily. They would stamp her passport with 68-1 which means “order of departure”. She should be good to go if she didn’t commit any heavy crime like murder.

    Hello po maam Betchay,ask ko po ako po ay korean passport.nakapag asawa ng bangladesh.tnt xa for almost 16 years na this year.mag voluntary surrender kami sana this month.kaso on going pa kasi yung midikisyun ko gustu namin magkaanak.nagkaproblema kasi sa passport nya,inayus muna namin yun bago kami nagpakasal sa sitchung. Dahil yung dati nyang paasport d tunay nyang pangalan.pumasok xa dto tru broker. Now yung tunay na pangalan nya.so wala bang problema sana by september magsurrender kami.

      Hi Angeli! F-6 ang visa para sa may asawang Korean. Kung TNT ka at di ka umuwi ng time na may amnesty, kailangan magbayad ng penalty bago ma-grant ang visa.

      Hi Rey! Yung friend ko nag-try siya after 4 years. Nakakuha siya ng tourist visa at nakatatlong balik na siya rito as tourist. Artista rin siya ng 7 years at nag-voluntary exit.

      G1 is humanitarian or refugee visa. Unless refugee ka or may kaso ka sa Korea na dapat ayusin or may malubha kang sakit na hindi ka pwede lumipad, di applicable ang G1.
