The Number of Foreign Residents in Gwangju and Jeollanamdo Reach Nearly 70,000

 

The total number of foreign residents in Korea continues to grow, surpassing the 1.5 million mark earlier this year, and nearly 70,000 foreign residents live in Gwangju and Jeollanamdo.

Foreign residents” refers to the international population registered for long-term residency in Korea, naturalized Korean citizens, marriage immigrants, and children of foreign residents in the country.

According to the data released by the Ministry of Security and Public Administration, foreign residents in Korea account for over 3 percent of the country’s population and the number of residents from outside the country marked 1.57 million as of January this year, up 8.6 percent from a year ago.

The combined number of foreign residents in Gwangju and Jeollanamdo stands at 68,000 and the Ministry of Security and Public Administration attributed the continuous growth of the foreign population to the easing of requirements for overseas Koreans or F4 visas and an increase in applications for permanent residency among ethnic Koreans living overseas.
