The online registration for those interested in taking the Korean Language Test (KLT) is still going on, said the officer-in-charge of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) in Western Visayas, Rhea Glynda Calantas.
Instead of the November or December schedule, Calantas said that probably the exam will be moved to next year.
The KLT is a prerequisite for those who are interested to work in Korea. This year, the exam is supposed to be held in Iloilo.
Korea has been one of the destinations of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) for its factories.
Since the entry of workers to Korea is being facilitated by the government, OFWs no longer have to pay for their placement fee. Instead, they will just be spending on the expenses that they would incur while processing their documents.
However, Calantas earlier clarified that one’s passing of the KLT is not a guarantee that they can already land a job in Korea because the companies are the one choosing qualified workers.
