The government will hold consultation sessions at immigration offices around the country in order to address any questions or problems foreigners may have.
The Ministry of Justice said Thursday it has teamed up with five other ministries ㅡ education, public administration and security, health and welfare, labor and gender equality ㅡ to organize the annual sessions starting Friday in Gwangju, South Jeolla Province, and Chuncheon, Gangwon Province. The sessions will be held in 14 cities till Nov. 2.
``No matter what kind of difficulties they face, they will find the right solution with help official help from the concerned ministries,'' said Chung Young-seop, justice ministry official in charge of the program.
As you can see from the chart taken off the KT site, the one for Gwangju is coming up . . . today and Saturday. The one in Yeosu is next weekend. It's a nice gesture, and one that I take it is aimed more at foreign migrant workers and international brides. Pardon the cynicism, it's not my main theme I swear, but we learned through all the new visa regulations, the numerous degree certifications, and the inconsistent policies toward criminal background checks that immigration offices are not always on the same page. What gets said at one of the meetings may not hold true at another location, or even for another officer or another day.
