If a foreign worker wants to obtain a work experience certificate in person, he/she should visit a branch of HRD Korea in Korea or an EPS center in his/her sending country.

"The new experience certificate issuance service is launched to make it easier for foreign workers to find work and start up business based on their work experience in Korea," said Lee Jae-gap, the Deputy Minister of the Employment Policy Office. "The government will continue to take support measures for returnees. For instance, we will offer local skills training and business start-up training* to foreign workers returning home after employment in Korea, provide them with local job information and job placement services** and give preferential treatment to well-behaved foreign workers whose reemployment period has expired."

   * Local skills training and business start-up training will be provided to 100 Vietnamese returnees on a pilot basis from September.

  ** The government had organized job placement events for returnees in sending countries. However, it held an event in Seoul and Busan from June 25 to 26, 2011 to connect 420 Mongolian returnees seeking jobs with 15 Mongolian firms looking for workers.
