S. Korea to introduce special visas for marriage immigrants CCTV News – CNTV English

SEOUL, April 29 (Xinhua) — South Korea is poised to issue special visas for foreign immigrants who come to the country via marriage, the Ministry of Justice said Friday.

The ministry said it plans to introduce a new F-6 visa specifically for marriage-based immigrants, in a bid to help them settle in the country and raise the efficiency of government immigration policies.

The ministry added that revisions to the country’s immigration law, including the new visa and eased residency requirements for foreigners with outstanding abilities, will be enforced in the latter half of this year.

Foreign immigrants who marry South Korean national spouses are currently granted F-2 visa status as same as other long-term foreign residents here.

“The current F-2 visa covers various types of long-term residents, positing limitations on policymaking for marriage-based immigrants,” a ministry official was quoted by Yonhap News Agency. “We expect the introduction of the new visa will reduce such difficulties.”
