EPS (Employment Permit System) is a transparent recruitment system implemented by the Government of South Korea to recruit foreign workers for employment in Korea. This recruitment system is a government to government arrangement and the entire recruitment process is implemented as per the terms and conditions of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed and agreed by the both governments. The ministry of Foreign Employment Promotional & Welfare of the government of Sri Lanka and the Ministry of Employment & Labour of the Government of South Korean ove the two parties of the MOU.
Pursuant to the MOU the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment(SLBFE) has been authorized to act as EPS implementing agency in Sri Lanka. Other than the SLBFE, there is no any other government or private institution who has been legally authorized to charge fees and recruit people for employment in South Korea. If someone requests money to provide jobs in Korea, please inform immediately to the SLBFE or EPS Centre at Battaramulla.
Therefore, it is expected from the job seekers to be fully aware of the EPS System and to avoid from racketeers.
