As from 1 October 2016, young South Korean people between the age of 18 and 30 may, from 1 October 2016 onwards, be introduced to Dutch culture and society again by means of a working holiday of a maximum of one year. On Tuesday 27 September 2016, Mr Van Dam, the State Secretary for Economic Affairs, and Mr Yun Byung-se, the South Korean Minister of Foreign Affairs, signed a Memorandum of Understanding for this purpose. Those participating in the Working Holiday Program (WHP) are allowed to study in the Netherlands and occasionally do paid work in order to pay the costs of their stay. They need not have a work permit. Each year, a maximum of 100 young South Korean people can participate in this program. Applications can be submitted to the Dutch Embassy in Seoul, which will keep a record of when the quota has been reached. The program will start on 1 October 2016 for a period of two years, in principle.

Dutch young persons who want to participate in this program can register with the South Korean embassy in The Hague.
