Objetivos clave de la medida:

This policy was led by the Korea Immigration Service to expand cooperation and exchange in culture and arts for the promotion of cultural diversity. In particular, this policy was implemented to stimulate exchanges between foreign artists in performing arts. This has thus set the stage for exchanges in culture and arts to be conducted more freely.

Característica principal de la medida:

Previously, legislation required advance permission for foreign artists to stay in Korea for extended periods of time. However, this policy changed this law to allow for a follow-up report in the case of change and addition of a workplace to facilitate foreigners’ stays in Korea, which consequently improved the system of certificates for confirmation of visa issuance for international exchanges between artists. Such a varied visa system has expanded exchanges between artists and is building the basis for increased cooperation in international culture and arts.
