Two Koreas to Set Up Electronic Verification System at Kaesong

Construction will begin Wednesday on an electronic verification system to ease the commute of workers at the Kaesong inter-Korean business park, the Unification Ministry here said Tuesday. It is due to be completed by the end of this year.

Once adopted, the system will allow South Korean workers to cross the inter-Korean border at any time of the day after signing up.

Currently, Seoul has to fax Pyongyang a list of South Korean workers who wish to enter the Kaesong complex one day in advance.
