Working visa for South Korea

I am a filipino and the philippine government through Philippine Overseas Employment Administration deploy workers in S.Korea. I am 42 years old, eager to work in Korea, but there is an age restriction there. Only 38 years old and below can work in S. Korea. How would I still work in Korea with the help of a Sponsor Employer? According to the government of Korea, a Filipino applicant worker must pass their Test on Korean Language Proficiency and wait for their advise for their employer. But, I have an employer already, but unable to take the Korean Test because of my age. How can I work in Korea without taking the said test and get employment/ working visa? i hope u could help me on this! Thank you very much.

Hi Enamul

You will need to first secure employment from a South Korean company so you can apply for the relevant visa. You will need to present your work contract to the embassy to get a visa, along with some other documentation. Take a look at the visas for South Korea page and the work permits for South Korea page to find out more.

Hi,
I'm Rafiqul Islam from Bangladesh. I know the system( EPS-TOPIK/CBT ) to go korea for work, I've learned korean language two years ago & I'm so much confident about my skill in language. But the fact is the selection system for exam is lottery in BD and for the fourth time I can't success in lottery(last in 13.09.12). Is it a proper system ? please reject the lottery system and give me a chance by participating exam to evaluate my talent. I'm so much eager to get a job in S.Korea.
