Aug 10, Colombo: Sri Lanka Ministry of Foreign Employment Promotion has decided to make the passport compulsory to issue applications for the employment in Korea.
The employment in Korea is handled by the state owned Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau and the candidates have to pass the Korean language proficiency examination before getting selected for the jobs.
The applicants for the Korean language examination will have to submit the passports to obtain the application.
The Ministry of Foreign Employment Promotion says that the decision was to minimize delay in leaving for jobs in Korea.
Earlier, submitting the National Identity Card was sufficient to obtain the application but there were many instances of the name in the passport not matching with the details submitted in advance.
