13 Examples of 3D Jobs in South Korea for E9 Visa Holders (Videos)


Every year, thousands of Filipinos are aspiring to pass the Korean Language Test so that they can acquire an E-9 Visa to work in South Korea.

For the information of everybody, E-9 Visa is for non-professional employment. E-9 Visa holders can be employed in manufacturing businesses in South Korea. The jobs offered are usually under the category they called 3D or Dirty, Dangerous and Demeaning. But wait, 3D maybe a heavy word but don't get too overwhelmed or disappointed. Everyone who dreams to work in the land of the calm morning can choose to acquire an E-9 visa since this is the easiest way to go and work here. Getting a working visa, or even a visit visa for South Korea is very cumbersome, believe me, you may need to do a lot of paperworks and present piles of documents.

I have asked our OFWs to submit their videos while working for this advocacy and I have received overwheling response from several OFWs here in South Korea. However, I can only accommodate up to 13 videos. My purpose for sharing this on this blogpost is to inform those who are aspiring to work here under E-9 Visa and for those who are still on queue waiting to be selected. This is to give them an idea on what kind of work is waiting for them here. And also to let the whole world know the sacrifices of the new generation heroes of the Philippines.

I would just let the videos to do the talking.

Video number 1:

He is using a press machine, someone must take extra care when using this machine because your fingers are at stake, but Filipinos can always find ways to be funny and it is our innate ability to handle dangers lightly. He even managed to eat while working.




Video Number 2:

Industry: Manufacturing of Exhaust Fan

This one is an example of plastic injection job. You can just go "petiks" with this kind of job. For some aspirants out there, don't be afraid when they say 3D jobs because sometimes it's not true at all, just look at the video below.

Industry: Manufacturing of Aircraft parts

Here in South Korea, safety is the primary concern, just like this OFW in full gear while working.



Video Number 4:

Industry: Manufacturing of Coated wires/string

In the workplace, machines are always the front actors. If you are assigned to just operate the machine, then lucky you.

Industry: Manufacturing of Buttons

Who says you can't talk and have fun while working in a heavy environment huh? 


Video Number 6:

Industry: Manufacturing of RTW clothes

Some jobs like in this video may look easy but I think it's difficult to sew especially if you are not really into clothes making. But hey, we're Filipino, and we can always adapt to everything.

Industry: Food Processing

3D jobs are not always Dirty, there are some industries that need to have clean environment like the food processing. Who would want to process food in a dirty place? That's ewww..

Welding is one of the most common jobs here in South Korea along with handling of manual robots and forklifting.



Video Number 11:

Industry: Manufacturing of Equipment and Transport

They call this Sasang and this I think is one of the perfect examples of 3D job. You can check out the video and see if you can handle this kind of job.





Video Number 12:

Industry: Manufacturing of Rubber and Plastic

Usually, easy jobs fall under the category of rubber and plastic.




Video Number 13:

Industry: Furniture

This one requires a skill of a carpenter, so this could be difficult to handle if carving woods is not your cup of tea.


So there you go ladies and gentlemen, our heroes on the go working to save the economy of the Philippines. The common denominator of these OFWs is that they are proud of what they are doing. If you look at the videos, they may be doing difficult jobs, but they just like having fun. At the end of the day, it is not about what you are doing, it is all about the happiness you get from what you are doing. Now question, can you do that too?

  9. I'd be honest right now and say I don't think I can do any of these, not without being miserable day in and day out... Just imagine those who work in unregulated industries.

    1. the only way to get a job in Korea in Manufacturing Industry is to get an E9 Visa,

      How to get an E9 Visa? You need to take a Korean Language exam in POEA. Once you passed that, the POEA will then advise you what to do next. However, the examination only happens once a year, and sometimes none at all. Please go to the website of POEA poea.gov.ph and check if there is an announcement for examination.
