“For those qualified for the multiple visa, they can submit only one paper saying I am working for this company,” Han said.

Half a million Filipinos has visited Korea last year and Koreans have topped the list of foreign tourists that visited the Philippines for the past 10 years, according to Han.

Also, South Korea is multiplying the number of scholarships offered to Filipino students, giving more opportunities for Filipinos to study there.

“We are encouraging people-to-people exchange, not only tourists but also students. So we are inviting many Korean students to study in the Philippines, and also we are inviting many qualified, talented Filipinos, in particular, university students to get scholarship,” Han said.
