1. The annual quota of participants in the Republic of Korea-Taiwan working holiday program has been expanded from the current 600 to 800, effective from January 1, 2018.

※ The bilateral working holiday program has been in place since 2011.

2. Preference for the ROK-Taiwan working holiday program prevails among young Koreans, as can be seen from the quota fulfillment every year. With the quota expanded, a larger number of young Koreans will enjoy opportunities to gain language and cultural experiences in Taiwan.

3. The ROK has so far concluded agreements or memoranda of understanding on working holiday with 22 countries, with an annual 40,000-odd people taking part in the working holiday programs with those countries. Going forward, the Foreign Ministry will seek to further bolster the institutional foundation to offer young Koreans more opportunities to build presence overseas.
