(Dec 02, 2007) The Korean Finance and Economy Ministry released the Foreign Currency System Improvement Plan on November 8, 2007. Korea currently allows a Korean person or firm to transfer abroad up to US$ 3 million per person or firm to buy real estate for investment purposes. This limit will be removed during 2008. The government will also allow foreign remittances of up to US$50,000 without written proof of the purpose of the remittance.
