It would make sense, but we’re still in the dark about this.
The WDA allegedly told a certain website that verification would not be required for documents issued by countries other than those on the naughty list in that 2015 administrative order (which refers to the the documents listed in Art. 7 Par. 1 and 2 of the Regulations on the Permission and Administration of the Employment of Foreign Workers). Then the WDA said the MOE would set the rules, and we’re still waiting.
Of those two paragraphs, the key would be this subparagraph:
- Other documents as may be required by the Central Competent Authority.
In that context, “Central Competent Authority” means the Ministry of Labor or the city/county government (not specifically any department thereof). All I can say with certainty is, stay tuned.
