[Warning to go abroad] South Korea's multiple tourist visas-frequent crises

Release Time:2018-12-07

Justice Network Weihai, June 29 (Reporter Kuang Xue, Correspondent Li Yanzong, Gu Jiahui)

Seeking an intermediary to get a visa for a migrant worker makes it harder for an intermediary to get a refund after repeatedly refusing to sign the visa. Recently, a public prosecution was filed by the procuratorate of Rongcheng City, Shandong Province. The court sentenced the defendant Liu Mou to three years'imprisonment, four years' probation and a fine of 50,000 yuan for defrauding exit documents.

Tan Hui (a pseudonym) is an unemployed woman. When she looks for a job, she hears that working in Korea is easy and profitable. In March 2016, Tan Hui found Liu Mou, the legal representative of an investment consulting service limited company in Rongcheng City, and explained her intention to apply for a visa to go abroad. Liu Mou's packing ticket would certainly handle the visa for her, and she charged Tan Hui 25,000 yuan for two times. It was agreed that if the visa could not be successfully processed, the company would refund all the fees.

In fact, the company does not have the qualifications to apply for Korean visas. Liu Mou disguised the witness as a company employee by paying social insurance for the witness and issuing false on-the-job certificate, and then obtained an invitation letter from a Korean company with business contacts in the name of travel or business investigation, in order to obtain a visa to Korea for the witness. In 2016, Liu has cheated more than ten migrant workers.

Tan Hui waited for her visa after paying the money. However, when Liu applied for visas for him three times, he was rejected by the Korean Embassy in Qingdao because the forged application materials were not qualified. Seeing that there was no hope of getting a visa, Tan Hui gave up going abroad and asked the company to refund the cost of certification. Liu Mou refused Tan Hui's request for a full refund on the ground that he had spent too much in the previous period. There was a dispute between the two sides. In many cases, Tan Hui could not get a refund after coordinating, so she went to Weihai Public Security Bureau Entry-Exit Management Brigade to report the case, and the public security organs followed this clue to conduct in-depth investigation, which uncovered the true face of the defendant.

This case is the first case of fraudulent exit in Rongcheng District. Because it involves a large number of people, districts and foreign enterprises, it is difficult to obtain evidence, and the defendant has repeatedly retracted confessions during the period, the case once fell into deadlock. After careful examination, multiple reviews of witnesses, and the acquisition of key electronic evidence from both sides'chat records, the procuratorial organs have gone through eight months. Finally, under a large number of investigations and irrefutable evidence, the accused pleaded guilty and obeyed the law and received due sanctions.

In view of the current international situation, South Korea is no longer a paradise for young migrant workers. The compiler summarizes the following points for your reference:

  1. The "Jinwen Meeting" has changed the rigid relations between the two Koreas for decades, opened 38 boundaries and promoted friendly exchanges of politics, economy and culture between the two Koreas. This has prompted the interaction between the two Koreas and the humanities. The Korean people have flooded into the Korean workforce in large numbers to compete for the labor market of the Chinese in Korea.

  2. The tightening of visa policy in Korea and the strict examination of tourist visa data for people under 17 and over 55 have shattered many young people's dream of cheating Korean visas by forging information from an intermediary company.

  3. A large number of Chinese people have flooded into Korea, occupying the bottom labor market in Korea, causing the local people to worry about work and to report a series of cases. Therefore, the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Labor of Korea jointly conduct large-scale and irregular spot checks on illegal workers and employers, imposing huge fines and capturing a large number of illegal Chinese workers.

  4. In fact, most of Korea's tourism visa employers are construction, farmland, catering, and some of them are hard-working but also squeezed by intermediaries (only 70% of the employer's actual expenditure income can be obtained).

  5. "Black workers" is a group pronoun which is not protected by law. The so-called "black eating" may be the most popular and understandable term. First of all, the status is illegal, personal safety can not be guaranteed; second, there is no sound medical protection, medical treatment, work-related injuries can not be compensated.
