Seoul announced it will distribute 100,000 masks with replaceable filters to international students who find it difficult to obtain masks and foreigners without health insurance.
With the “5-day rotation system for mask distribution” in place, foreigners are required to present their alien registration card and certificate of health insurance when purchasing masks. However, almost every international student is without insurance or finds it difficult to purchase masks due to the language barrier or other living conditions.
Therefore, the Seoul Metropolitan Government decided to provide masks along with replaceable filters to international students and foreign workers at 40 universities located in Seoul and foreigner support facilities.
International students can receive a cotton mask with five replaceable filters through the university with which they are associated and migrant workers can receive them through six global migrant centers, as well as the Seoul Global Center and the Southwest Seoul Global Center.
