New agreement between South Korea and Czech Republic facilitates work and travel


A new agreement between South Korea and the Czech Republic will facilitate travel and work stays for Czechs in South Korea and vice versa. The bilateral agreement introduces one-year visas that will give young people the option to work during their stay in the foreign country. Previously, a visa was required even for stays shorter than three months. Czech diplomats believe that these new visas will be in demand and that citizens of both countries will take advantage of this new option. In addition, the number of Czech students in South Korea and South Korean students in the Czech Republic is expected to grow from the current several dozen as a consequence of the improved work possibilities.
