S.Korea to establish birth registration system for Korea-born foreigners

S.Korea to establish birth registration system for Korea-born foreigners

 

 

There is a birth-registration system for foreign children currently undergoing review. This is from the Ministry of Justice that such discussions were held for those unable to be registered under the current laws. Our HyungJin Ro reports.

 

The Ministry of Justice is planning to establish a birth registration system for non-Korean children born in South Korea.

 

According to statistics, there are more than 20,000 unregistered foreign children in the country who are vulnerable to abuse, trafficking and exploitation due to limited public services.

 

Under the current law, foreign parents who are not legal residents cannot register the births of any children born in Korea, essentially making the children ineligible for government medical care and education.

 

Children's human rights groups said if the law is successfully introduced, it would effectively provide legal grounds for all children born in Korea to be registered and protected.

 

The ministry is planning to hold further discussions with experts and advocacy groups before proposing a related bill to parliament.
