    In Chapter 1, the necessity and background of this study are discussed and the main topic of this study is presented. Chapter 2 suggests the policy agenda that comes with the increased openness to foreign workforce, under the subject of changes to the size of foreign residents and challenges, using the data from Statistics Korea’s Survey on Immigrants’ Living Conditions and Labor Force, International Comparison on Foreign Residents and Statistics on Foreign Residents by the Ministry of the Interior and Safety. The key discussions of chapter 2 are as follows:

     

    First, looking at the inflow of immigrants to Korea, the inflow of non-working visa foreigners who participate in economic activities is on the rise, accounting for a higher proportion than those with working visas. Considering that a significant number of non-working visa holders are participating in economic activities, it is necessary to deal with the foreign workforce issue from the perspective of all resident foreigners, beyond the policy targeting work visa holders only. However, as we can see from the analysis results in chapter 2, we need a policy that does not separate the inflow process of migrant workers, but to link the work visa to settled immigrant visa, as overseas Koreans with residency status that takes up a large portion in the increasing number of foreign residents are mostly moving with visiting employment visa (H-2), and as most of the people with permanent residency go through work visa first.
