Although in January of this year South Korea agreed to discontinue its ban to travelers with the HIV virus, the routine testing for the virus still continues in schools for foreign teachers. After the G20 Summit held last week in Seoul, there are reports stating that the UN urges South Korea to terminate this testing requirement.
Implemented in 2007, this testing was initiated to control the incoming migrant workers, specifically teachers, who the public feared to be out-of-control and disease ridden. Many nations ridicule South Korea by saying that this testing is a means of discrimination. Currently, the visa that is still affected by this testing is the E-2 teaching visa.
It is unknown at this time whether the government will submit to the pressure that the UN is weighing upon it.
