The 14 Industries Eager to Hire Foreign Workers Under the New Visa Statutes
The industries interested in hiring foreign workers under the new visa statutes seem to be fourteen. But first, let’s remind which kind of visas we are talking about.
In April 2019, two new visas statutes are supposed to be released:
Visa 1 will be given to people with experience who pass technical and Japanese language tests or complete the three-year job training.
Visa 2 will be given to highly skilled workers who pass more difficulty tests.
For more information about these kinds of visas, please read our previous article here.
The following sectors are the ones that are keen to accept foreign workers under the above statutes:
Food and beverage
Electronics and electric machinery
Airport ground handling
Of these types of businesses, the restaurant, hotel, and nursing care industries are considering conducting new tests for the first type of status by April, and the other industries in May or later.
All the sectors have not considered yet the schedules for the second type of status.
