Japan to commence new visa class for foreign care workers

In a bid to allure more number of overseas care workers and to provide more number of employment prospects, Japanese government has all set to introduce a new resident class, said the concerned representative of the country. Sources of the country further added that the legal change would be put forth before the Diet by the first week of March as a key effort to make the bill approved at the time of ordinary Diet conference. 

With a target of filling the vacant labor position in its organizations and to surge the country’s economy, Japanese government has planned to launch this new program for overseas care workers. It was said that the new plan has been accepted by the junior partnership party, Komeito and the current governing Liberal Democratic Party in the legislative conference. However, the concerned officials of the country have to wait for the approval of Cabinet. 

As per the former economic joint venture agreement, nationals of Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia are permitted to work in the country. And skilled workers from other nations though possess the qualified skills and experiences are not permitted to work in the country due to lack of appropriate status of resident, according to sources.
