After two weeks of quarantine at the institute, they followed education programs to help them adapt to life in South Korea.

They will stay at the Korea Coast Guard Academy in Yeosu until February.

If they complete the adaptation course, the Ministry of Justice plans to issue F-2 visas, which are mostly free from restrictions on residence, work and study under the newly-enacted enforcement ordinance.
