Japan to Easy Work Permit Requirements for Overseas Workers who want to Work in Japan.

Japan Government has decided to ease requirements for foreign workers who want to work in Japan as country is suffering from serious shortage of unskilled labor to work in five key fields: –

  • Agriculture
  • Construction
  • Lodging
  • Nursing care
  • Shipbuilding

According to the estimate by the Japanese new government it’s working age population between 15 and 65 years will be shrinking by about 15 million before 2040. So, Japan Government is making new policy to attract more and more foreign workers to Japan as country’s labor shortage has become a biggest challenge for Japanese government.

Japan is going to introduce a new 5 years work permit system and easing the Japanese language requirements for work visas. This will be a significant change in Japan Immigration laws as currently Japan issues work permits mostly to skilled, highly qualified and degree holders.

Five industries agriculture, construction, lodging, nursing care and shipbuilding are currently facing a serious shortage of unskilled labor and worker. By introducing new work permit and changes, Japan is expecting to get more manpower from all over the world to fulfill deficiency of labor in these sectors. Japan had already got 1.27 million foreign workers last year according to the Japan health ministry.

As far as Japanese language is concerned, overseas workers should be able to understanding slow conversations in principle. However, For Agriculture and construction fields, people will be eligible for work permit even without having known Japanese language skills. The government will take measure to give training to work permit holders with the help of industry bodies. Construction industry needs 780000 to 930000 workers by 2025. Japan wants to obtain 300000 workers by introducing this new program to work in this field.

In Agriculture field, there is a shortfall of 46000 to 103000 by 2023 and governments is trying to bring 26000 to 83000 foreigners to work as farm workers through this program.

By the end to 2025, Japan government want to attract 550000 caregivers as demand in this sector for elderly care keep on growing. So Japan is taking more measures to bring more hands by introducing new programs and increasing salary because there are not enough domestic people to fill this gap.

The new system of work visa will be applicable to five most important fields construction, agriculture, nursing care, shipbuilding. Candidates will be need to have occupational and Japanese language skill test specified for type of work by industry bodies.

Overseas workers Under Current Technical Intern Training Program are allowed to stay up to five years. those who have completed their training program from testing will be exempted from new system of qualification.

The draft guidelines, called the Basic Policy on Economic and Fiscal Management and Reform, will create a new system or class of work permits for five years. This program and policies will be finalized by the end of June and we will share more details and application process. So, keep in touch with our blog to get updates regarding visa and immigration worldwide.
