Japan’s economy is getting stronger than ever but with an aging population, this country needs to bring in workers from outside their country. This is where the Philippines comes in, our country can send OFWs.
This is a big opportunity for Filipinos who wants to work abroad, particularly in the Land of The Rising Sun. Don’t miss this chance! Apply as soon as the program and recruitment starts.
Japanese officials have recently meet with representatives from the Philippine Overseas Employment Agencies or POEA to discuss the new category that will be opened for Pinoys, the Specified Skill Worker Visa.
There are two categories under this new type of work-visa for Filipino workers:
