As an Indonesian working in Malaysia, you may be referencing Malaysian law and regulations that affect foreign workers.
Malaysia, with the numbers of foreign workers, has a process of Leaving the Country Withdrawal, either Malaysian citizens, or foreign citizens no longer employed and going home. As you are going on holiday, this provision does not apply to you.
In some cases, the employer requires that leave must be requested and approved in writing and/or the employer has required that the guest worker surrender their passport and request its return, in order to leave the country. Requesting leave is a norm, retaining a passport, less so. With those items ticked, you simply have to obtain a visa.
As an Indonesian passport holder, you do need a visa to enter the Republic of Korea.
However, a visa not required for maximum stay of 30 days for nationals of Indonesia if you are:
- Holding a visa issued by Australia, Canada, USA or New Zealand only if in transit from/to those countries through Korea.
- Arriving and departing from Jeju (CJU) for tourism purpose.
- Previously entered Korea at least 4 times within the last 2 years or at least 10 visits in total.
