The Thai Government's Deputy Spokesperson, Karom Phonphonklang, has announced that Thai workers can now apply for seasonal fisheries jobs in Wando County, South Korea, without the need to pass a Korean language test.

 

These job openings mainly involve seaweed farming and pay an average monthly income of around 2.17 million Korean won, or roughly 57,900 baht. The job contracts are for five months, but they can be extended up to three additional months.

 

To be eligible, individuals must be between 25 to 50 years old, have a minimum of one-year fishing experience, and meet certain health and legal requirements. Interested persons can register through the Department of Employment's website.

 

However, the selected workers will have to carry the costs for items such as passports, health examinations, criminal record checks, travel insurance, and membership fees. These are estimated to be around 35,000 baht in total.

 

To avoid scams, applicants are advised to validate all information with the Department of Employment directly. Further questions should be directed to the provincial employment offices, Bangkok employment offices, the Thai Overseas Employment Administration, or by calling the Ministry of Labor hotline at 1506 press 2, or the Department of Employment hotline at 1694.

What do they mean by "fishing experience" ?

Having to pay money up front to work is a classic scam...If this was on the up and up the employer should be happy to pay upfront cost....

But how many basically use something like this to get across the border and then disappear to work elsewhere else illegally.  The trick is getting across the border to begin with.
