How to Apply as a Factory Worker in Korea

Share it Please

work in manufacturing industry




IMPORTANT NOTICE: As you can see, this blogpost has been flooded with questions. I could no longer answer questions here. If you have questions, CLICK HERE to see if it has been answered in the FAQ. If not, just leave your question in the comment box of that page.


A lot of people commenting on my blogposts and emailing me asking “How to apply as a factory worker in Korea?”. and although I am not authorized to hire people to work here in Korea, I feel obligated as a blogger to share the information on how people in the Philippines apply as a factory worker here. Interested applicant must go through the process of EPS or Employment Permit System.

So here’s a guide for everyone out there who are interested to work in a manufacturing industry. This is based on the agreement between the Ministry of Employment and Labor of the Republic of Korea (MOEL) and the Department of Labor and Employment of the Philippines with regards to the MOU on the Sending of Workers.

First Step: Announcement of EPS-TOPIK

For the information of everybody, EPS-TOPIK exam is a selection criteria for jobseekers in Korea. This is a Korean language test to ensure that foreign workers who hope to work in Korea are equipped with Korean language skills. One must pass the exam first before being listed in the roster of applicants.

The announcement of EPS-TOPIK is usually posted in the POEA website (www.poea.gov.ph). There is no definite date of posting of announcement. The announcement contains the date of survey to be conducted by POEA, this survey will serve as pre registration, the estimated time of actual registration and the test schedule. This is the example of the announcement:
This is a sample announcement from the POEA websit

While waiting for the announcement, I recommend you start learning Korean language. You need to pass the exam in order to be listed in the roster of applicants.

Second Step: Registration for EPS-TOPIK

After you have pre-registered through the survey conducted by POEA, you may now proceed to actual registration on a specified date in the announcement. All applicants must only register in the registration venue where he or she wants to take the test. For the qualifications, please check the list below:

·         Must be 18 years of age and not more than 38 years old on the next EPS-TOPIK exam date
·         Must be physically and mentally fit
·         Must not have any record of conviction or imprisonment
·         Must not have any record of deportation or departure orders from the Republic of Korea
·         Registered with active status in the POEA Manpower Registry

Registration venues will soon be posted.

What to Bring for registration:

·         Valid passport or valid governmaent-issued Identification Card with picture and date of birth such as SSS, GSIS, Driver’s License or Voter’s ID
·         Two (2) pcs. passport size colored picture showing a full face with no hat and taken not more than six (6) months before registration
·         Registration/Test fee – US $24 or Php1,044.00. (previous exam)
Third Step: Pass the EPS-TOPIK

Go to the respective testing venue on a specified date on the announcement and take the EPS-TOPIK exam. You must pass the exam, if not, you cannot work as a factory worker in Korea.

The exam is consists of two types, the Listening and the Reading. There are 25 items for listening and 25 items also for reading.  You must answer that in 70 minutes. Test type is multiple choice.

Fourth Step: Wait for the announcement of test result

You will be informed about the date of the announcement of test result. All you need to do is wait (usually about 7 days) for the announcement which can be found on POEA website. Once you see your name on the passer’s list, you can now submit the requirements to POEA. Please note that passing the exam does not guarantee employment, but basically, you are halfway there.

Fifth Step: Submit the requirements

Once you see your name on the passers’ list, report to POEA in your area immediately. The POEA will provide you a list of requirements that you must comply. The requirements are basically medical certificate, IDs, scanned copy of passport, and whatnot. At this point, you won’t find it difficult to provide the documents needed since you already have it since the registration. All you need to do is photocopy and send it to POEA Manila.

Sixth Step: Wait, wait and wait

After you have submitted everything, this is the hardest part, to wait!!! You have to register to eps.go.kr(please use Internet Explorer browser) to monitor your immigration status. This is how it looks like:
Sample procedure of immigration process to monitor your status

It shows the progress of your application from passing the exam up to the job assignment. The first procedure is EPS-TOPIK. It must show a data to start with. If that column has no data, either you haven;t submitted the requirements yet or there are problems found in your documents, i,e. not clear copy of scanned passport, medical result, etc. 

Once your EPS-TOPIK column has data, you should wait for your EPI now or Employment Permit Issuance.If your EPI column has a data, that means, you have been selected already and all you need to do is check in POEA website if you are listed for a one week training and contract signing at POEA Manila. Then wait for your contract to be transferred. Once the CCVI issuance column has data, you need to resign if you have a job or prepare yourself because you are now 90 percent sure of your employment to Korea. All you need to do is wait for your scheduled flight to Korea.

From the POEA website, you can also see the breakdown of the cost you need to pay for processing.


In peso, it is approximately PHP35,000.

That’s it. It’s not rocket science. You just need patience and the guts. For more information about working here in Korea in general, you may want to check my other posts regarding the current minimum wage for factory workers in Korea, type of jobs in manufacturing industry and a lot more HERE

    1. no training required. Just like you, I self studied korean language kasi I was also working before. The training that will be conducted by POEA is the only required training which will only happen if you have already selected. Pero kung balak mo mag exam, ikaw na bahala sa diskarte mo on how to learn the language.

  56. Ask ko lang po kung how frequent it is for a female worker to actually get employed by companies in S.K? Kasi I heard that POEA stopped female applicants from taking the exam due to the low rate demand of female workers or naiba na at tumatanggap na sila ngayon ulit? Ito lang yung pinaka worry ko since I'm a female and I do really want to give my all out just to fly there and work in a factory pero dahil nga sa takot na baka di naman makukuha agad because of my gender eh baka masayang ang efforts and hardwork ko. May kilala po ba kayong female applicant na recently lang natanggap sa S.K?? Thank you :)

    1. hello jhaycel, I am sorry but that is not possible. Kung halimbwa sponsor ka ng ate mo na pumunta dito, limited lang din ang time na pagstay mo. If you will work here, that means you need to extend beyond the time na allowed ka which means TNT ka na. The only way to work as factory worker is to go through POEA as stated in this article.

  58. Bro ty sa blog mo it helps a lot. Gusto ko din makapapunta at magwork dyan. Nandyan din kasi asawa ko, kaya lang on the rocks kami ngyon dahil tata sa lifestyle dyan.

    1. Hello sir Ergie, napakasalimuot naman ng pinagdadaanan nyo po ngaun. I will tell you straight, hindi po madali mag apply as factory worker dito sa korea. Una sa lahat ipasa nyo muna ang exam at sa ngayon po wala pa pong schedule for hiring. So maybe aabutin pa ng 2 years including yong paghihintay nyo bago kayo makapunta dito. The best thing that you can do now is COMMUNICATION. Kelangan nyo po makausap asawa nyo through skype or facebook tungkol dito. Mahirap po ang LDR pero kung may constant communication kayo sa isa't isa I am sure mapag uusapan nyo naman po yan. Hindi po guaranteed na masosolve ang problem nyo kung pupuntahn mo sya dito. Find ways to reach to her, baka lang din kasi masyado ka rin lang nag iisip. You need to get her side.

    2. May alam ka ba kung hanggang ilan taon lang pwede mag stay ang invite na kapatid diyan?

    3. pagkakaalam ko they can stay here up to 3 months. More than that, TNT na sila nyan

    1. yes sir. pero mabilisan na dito, hindi kasing meticulous sa pinas. pagdating sa training center, medical kayo kaagad kaya impotanteng huwag uminom ng kahit anong gamot bago ang flight.

    1. that's a good start bro. Pero ilang taon ka na ba? Kasi hanggang 38 years old lang pwede dito eh. Wala pang announcement for KLT 13, kakatapos lang din kasi ng exam for KLT 12, so abang abang ka lang, habang nag aabang, aral ka lang para siguradong mapasa mo ang exam. Good luck sa iyo at sana ay maayos ang inyong sitwasyon ng pamilya mo.

    3. sobrang laki pa ng chance bro. Prayer and determination is all you need.. Dapat determinado ka kasi kung meron ka nyan, talagang sisikapin mo makapasa sa exam. Habang maaga pa aral ka muna ng language habang naghihintay ng schedule. And again, talk to your wife. Communication ang kailangan nyo. God bless po sa inyo at sa inyong pamilya

Oo nga pla bro baka may idea ka kung ano mas ok preffered position as manufacturer dyan ung ok sa salary kahit mahirap nag e-register na kasi ako dko alam pipiliin ko madami kasi option.

    6. Madami pre. Pwede yan download mo lahat ng textbook by parts 1 - 50 yun eh. Tapos sa Youtube search mo VIVI KOREAN or SEEMILE, panoorin mo o idownload mga videos nila. Google mo rin ibang site para dagdag kaalaman. Madali lang yan pre pag motivated ka at desidido ka talagang mapasa mo ang EPS. Vocabulary, numbers, writing hangul, alphabet, creating a sentence, greetings. At ito pa ang dapat mong malaman, may ways sila sa pag uusap sa bata, ka e-dad mo lang at mas matanda sayo. Lahat yan pag-aaralan mo.

  63. Good Day ! I find your blog so helpful for people who are aspiring to work in SK! Kudos for you! :)
    Anyway, i would just like to ask more information about this industry? For example, nahired ako, usually how many months will be the contract? Coz right now i am waiting for the next EPS ToPik and i will be taking that test as soon as possible. :) im 19 years old. :) but i am planning to go back here in philippines on june or july 2016 again because i will be continuing my studies. as of this year, i want to work in korea, if i got hired, usually how many months will be the contract?

    Well this is just my other options of working in korea. Just making some back up plans. Hoping for your quick response Have a nice day

    1. Hi kenne. Contracts usually last up to 3 years. You can't just work for few months and go home. If you want to work here in korea, give it at least a year if you want to stop and go back home. And few months of working here will not earn you that much money. It's not worth the time and effort of applying, sayang ang chance.

  65. Hello, nice topic and info from the whole blog site, for aspiring Filipinos want to get a job in S. Korea thru EPS-TOPIK. I'm 25, currently 3 years na design engineer here in Bataan. Nakaka-inspire yung self review nyo then you've passed the exams. Hoping to do that too, kasi mejo kamahalan yung P7k sa mga training center then dyahe pa if may current na job pa. Hoping to be in the 13th batch.

    1. hi merry rose, before ka makapag apply sa korea, may physical and medical exam na po sa Pilipinas. I suggest you better check with POEA approved hospitals and medical centers dyan sa Pinas kung pwede ba makapag trabaho abroad (not only Korea) ang mga may ganyang sakit. Sila ang mas nakakaalam kasi alam nila ang standard ng medical test sa abroad.

    1. Hi anamae, wala akong kakilalang may ganayang case pero sa medical test kasi kasali ang blood test. I am sure malalaman na may diabetes ka. Ang hindi ko lang sure if fit to work pa rin ba or hindi pag may ganyan. Pero suggestion ko, check mo muna sa mga POEA accredited medical centers na malapit sa inyo and ask. They know the standards of medical test in working abroad, so they can answer you better.

    3. oh wait.. you haven't signed the contract yet? Dapat nung nag ka EPI ka pa lang, pumunta ka na sa POEA for signing of contract and scheduling of training. Kapag na forward na ang labor contract, ibig sabhin nag sign ka na. If hindi ka pa nag sign tapos naforward na, that means may problema sa proseso. I suggest you have to go to POEA sir to clarify this issue. Baka nagkamali ang system or something
