When a new employer applies for a contract completion transfer employment continuation permit before the foreign worker starts his or her first day at work, provisionally there is no requirement to include PCR test results. The ministry will first send a letter approving the contract completion transfer employment continuation permit, while reserving the right to revoke it. In such situations, the new employer is required to submit the result of a COVID-19 PCR test taken within three days prior to the first day of employment to the ministry within 15 days after the first day of employment. In the event local medical facilities do not provide testing services or testing capacity is full on weekends or holidays, the result of a PCR test taken within three days after the first day of employment (inclusive) must be submitted. Failure to provide the documents within the allotted time period will lead to the revocation of the contract completion transfer employment continuation permit in accordance with Article 123 of the Administrative Procedure Act. At the same time, the new employer is in violation of Paragraph 9, Article 57 of the Employment Service Act and the appointed labor brokerage of Subparagraph 15, Paragraph 1, Article 40, with the punishment to be determined by the local government. If the transferred foreign worker has his or her first day of employment during the application processing period, the ministry will issue a letter instructing the new employer to send the COVID-19 PCR test results before continuing to review the contract completion employment continuation permit application.
