MOJ Toughens F-6 Visa Requirements


BUSAN, South Korea — Foreigners who marry Korean citizens will be required to have at least basic Korean language ability in order to legally stay in the country, the government said Monday.

The Ministry of Justice said it will put into force toughened requirements for issuing F-6 visas for marriage immigrants, which are intended to guarantee stability in living arrangements and also to help authorities’ better deal with their growing number.

Under the revised rules set to go into effect on Tuesday, foreigners wanting to come to live in South Korea after marrying locals will be screened for whether they can speak at least a basic or higher level of the Korean language, the ministry said.
