[Visa] Policy for hiring Korean Nationals vs. F4 Visa / Foreigners
1) I was wondering about the official ratio of permitted foreigners vs. Korean nationals to be hired in a Korean company in Seoul.
​
    I heard that for every 1 foreigner, you need 5 Korean nationals officially hired in a Korean company by law.
​
    Is this true?
​
​
2) Also, as a F-4 visa holder, am I considered a foreigner or Korean national in the above mentioned 5 to 1 hiring policy?

Hi. 


1) Yes. It is true. More specifically, a company can hire a foreigner with E7 visa(professionals) within 20 percent of total Korean employees in the company. 

2) The 20% rule applies to E7 visa holders. F4 visa hoders are not affected by the rule. F4 visa holder is not a Korean national. 


For more information on visa, you can try immigration website. www.hikorea.go.kr or call them at 1345.
