The province also established an emergency network encompassing police offices and border regions as well as southern provincial regions so as to facilitate swift reports of and responses to balloon-launching activities. Potential balloon-launching areas will be closely monitored and those who launch such balloons will be arrested. ?   2.

  • Two institutions where undocumented foreigners can receive medical expenses
    Currently, there are about 400,000 foreign residents living in Korea without registration. It just doubled from about 200,000 six years ago. If you stay in the unregistered state, you will experience various difficulties because you cannot receive social services in Korea. One of them is health insurance. Foreigners also suffer from various kinds of work at work, causing abnormalities in their bodies. Then, foreign residents who do not receive health insurance benefits will inevitably experience great disappointment. Because hospital bills are too expensive. For this reason, many inquiries come to Papaya Story to see if there is an institution that supports hospital expenses even for undocumented foreigners. Two services were summarized. Healthy Neighbor Center The Korean Red Cross operates six Healthy Neighbor Centers (hncenter.or.kr) across the country that support hospital expenses even for undocumented foreigners. Seoul (02-2002-8684) and Incheon (032-899-4000), Gyeongbuk Sangju (054-530-3029), Gyeongnam Tongyeong (055-644-8901), Gyeongnam Geochang (055-949-) 3368) and Yeongju, Gyeongbuk (Tel: 054-630-0167). The hospital expenses supported by the Healthy Neighbor Center for undocumented migrants are about 50-90%. The application rate is different for each of the six hospitals, so it is better to call and inquire. In the case of the Seoul Healthy Neighbor Center, up to 90% of the support is available, and since it operates a foreigner-only center, it is good to come to Seoul and receive treatment if possible. You can receive support after 90 days from entry, and you can receive up to 15 million won a year. 02-2002-8684 Gyeonggi Community Chest of Korea From November this year to August 2025, Gyeonggi Community Chest of Korea will carry out the ‘Community Chest of Korea Medical Expense Support Project for unregistered immigrants’. We are currently in the stage of preparing for this project, and we plan to start the medical expense support project in earnest in November. Detailed standards for this project will be announced in November. The Gyeonggi Community Chest of Korea said that undocumented foreigners must reside in Gyeonggi-do, but it is safe to say that virtually all migrants across the country are eligible as they cannot prove their residence due to the nature of undocumented people. 031-220-7923 Reporter Hasung Song

  • Which of the budget plans for next year announced by the government will help multicultural families?
    The Korea’s total budget plan for 2023, was announced by the government recently as of 639 trillion won. This is an increase of 5.2% from this year, but the increasing rate is the lowest.  The South Korean government said they have increased the budget to protect the citizen and the socially disadvantaged group. We have compiled a list of things that will be helpful to multicultural families in the budget for next year prepared by the government. ◆Support for low-income and disadvantaged groups Health, welfare, and employment are the sectors that has the largest portion of the budget plan for next year. The government will invest 5.5 trillion won to help stabilize the cost of living. To reduce the burden of shopping cart prices, the issuance of agricultural, livestock and seafood products discount coupons (10,000 won per person, up to 20%) will be nearly tripled to 169 billion won. The unit price of energy vouchers to support heating and cooling fuel costs will also be raised by 40% or more to 185,000 won per year in consideration of the difficulties of citizens. In order to alleviate the burden of transportation costs for users when commuting to work, the number of people eligible for the Altteul transportation card has been increased from 440,000 to 640,000 to provide additional benefits to 200,000 people. Next year, 400,000 won will be provided for moving expenses so that disadvantaged group living in a semi-basement, jjokbang, vinyl house, and gosiwon can move to a better place, and a deposit of up to 50 million won will be loaned without interest. In addition, to prevent damage from Jeonse fraud and to protect victims immediately, 200,000 people will be subsidized for the cost of joining the Jeonse Deposit Return Guarantee. ◆Support for the socially disadvantaged Protective support will also be strengthened for the socially disadvantaged, such as the low-income class. The monthly subsidy for a family of four will be raised from 1.54 million won to 1.62 million won for a family of four, and the education pay will also increase by an average of 23.3% to 415,000 won for elementary school students, 589,000 won for middle school students and 654,000 won for high school students. Among the contents announced by the government this time, the budget for supporting multicultural families is rather poor. It is decided to significantly increase the number of family centers that can provide psychological career counseling or learning support to children of school-age multicultural families. Of course, the existing policies to support multicultural families are still implemented without major changes. The criteria to support for single-parent families has been raised from 52% of the current median income to 60% so that more single-parent families can receive child support. 20,000 won per month is provided.

  • Newly changed infectious disease prevention and control aid and loss compensation, information on emergency living subsidy, etc.
    The government will provide infectious disease prevention and control aid from a minimum of 6 million won to a maximum of 10 million won to small business owners who have accumulated damage due to infectious disease prevention and control measures such as continuous business restrictions and gathering bans. On May 29, the National Assembly passed an additional supplementary budget of 62 trillion won for small business owners’ infectious disease prevention and control aid and loss compensation. Infectious disease prevention and control aid and compensation for loss are different. Infectious disease prevention and control aid  The target of this infectious disease prevention and control aid is small business owners, small enterprises, and medium-sized enterprises with sales of 1 to 5 billion won. The government pays a minimum of 6 million won to a maximum of 10 million won in infectious disease prevention and control aid for each company in consideration of the size of sales and the level of decline in sales. Among those eligible for support, about 50 industries, such as the travel industry and wedding venues, whose annual sales have decreased by more than 40% due to the application of “social distancing” measures, are classified as “upward-supported industries” and receive at least 7 million won in infectious disease prevention and control aid for losses. For example, a company with annual sales of less than 200 million won receives 6 million won as compensation for losses, but for businesses with upward support such as sports centers and performance halls receives 7 million won, which is 1 million won more. In order to receive the highest amount of 10 million won, it must be an upward- supported industry such as travel and air transportation, with annual sales of 400 million won or more, and a decrease in sales of 60% or more. This infectious disease prevention and control aid is paid separately from the previous 1st and 2nd infectious disease prevention and control subsidies. Small business owners who received 4 million won in the first and second infectious disease prevention and control subsidies can also receive an additional 10 million won in infectious disease prevention and control aid for losses this time. Since the government determines the rate of decrease in sales by using the National Tax Service database (DB), there is no need to separately submit document from the target companies. The time to pay infectious disease prevention and control aid for loss is scheduled to inform small business owners and the self-employed about the procedure for applying for infectious disease prevention and control aid by around May 30 at the earliest. Loss compensation Compensation for loss is compensation given to those who have suffered damage as a result of cooperation with the government's infectious disease prevention and control measures. This budget is set at 1.6 trillion won. This is much less than the infectious disease prevention and control aid. The government decided to raise the loss compensation correction rate from 90% to 100% from the first quarter of this year in order to “completely compensate” small business owners. In addition, the lower limit for quarterly loss compensation has been raised from 500,000 won to 1 million won. The scope of compensation for losses has also been expanded to include medium-sized enterprises with annual sales of 3 billion won or less. However, it is expected that it will take about a month for the payment to start after receiving the applications from those concerned. Emergency living support, etc. The emergency living support will be paid up to 1 million won to 2.27 million low-income households, and it is expected to receive it around July, which each local government will be done preparing. 700,000 freelancers from special high schools such as door-to-door salespeople and surrogate drivers and 30,000 cultural artists were originally supposed to receive 1 million won, but this was increased to 2 million won during the National Assembly discussion. The support for 160,000 corporate taxi and chartered bus drivers also increased from 2 million won to 3 million won. In this case as well, a separate application is required, so it is expected to be paid after the preparation period of 2 months for cultural artists and 1 month for other occupations.
