Let D be an arbitrary domain in $\mathbb{C}^n$, n > 1, and $M{\subset}{\partial}D$ be an open piece of the boundary. Suppose that M is connected and ${\partial}D$ is smooth real-analytic of finite type (in the sense of D'Angelo) in a neighborhood of $\bar{M}$. Let f : $D{\rightarrow}\mathbb{C}^n$ be a holomorphic correspondence such that the cluster set $cl_f$(M) is contained in a smooth closed real-algebraic hypersurface M' in $\mathbb{C}^n$ of finite type. It is shown that if f extends continuously to some open peace of M, then f extends as a holomorphic correspondence across M. As an application, we prove that any proper holomorphic correspondence from a bounded domain D in $\mathbb{C}^n$ with smooth real-analytic boundary onto a bounded domain D' in $\mathbb{C}^n$ with smooth real-algebraic boundary extends as a holomorphic correspondence to a neighborhood of $\bar{D}$.
