Working in Japan

We look forward to the day that we can work together with all of you as caregivers in Japan.

“I want to gain caregiving skills and knowledge in Japan.”

“I want to work as a caregiver in Japan.”

There are plenty of people who feel this way.

Right now, Japan and surely, your home country too, are still living life under the pandemic’s “new normal.”

This means that it’s still extremely difficult to come to Japan or to return to your home country.

However, we hope that someday, you’ll be able to make your dreams come true in Japan.

Specified Skilled Worker

特定技能制度

Anyone aged 18 or older can apply

Academic credentials are not necessary; you just need to be aged 18 or older.

The salary is equal to or higher than a Japanese employee’s

Regarding salary, the Japanese government has required that foreign caregivers get the same salary (or higher) as that of a Japanese caregiver. You can change jobs (but only within the same industry).

Support will be provided to enable you to work in Japan

The country of Japan, local governments, industry organizations and facilities all offer support in various ways in an effort to make foreign nationals feel comfortable coming to Japan to be care workers. They not only provide support for you as a care worker, but also offer a wide range of comprehensive support ranging from language issues to information for daily living.

The maximum duration is 5 years

The standard period you can work in Japan is 1 year, but it is possible to renew for 6 or 4 months, for a maximum of up to 5 years in total.

You can’t bring your family to live with you in Japan

If you become a certified care worker during the 5-year period, it is possible to upgrade your residence status, continue to work indefinitely, and bring your family with you.

You have to pass 3 types of examinations

There are three tests for Specified Skilled Worker jobs in nursing care: Nursing Care Skills Evaluation Test, Nursing Care Japanese Language Evaluation Test, and a test to measure the level of Japanese language proficiency. The Nursing Care Skills Evaluation Test and the Nursing Care Japanese Language Evaluation Test set the standard for workers to be an immediate asset in each field by measuring professional skills and knowledge of Japanese used on-site in nursing care.

What is a Specified Skilled Worker (i) in Nursing Care?
In response to the growing labor shortage, the “Specified Skilled Worker” residence status was newly established in April of 2019 to allow foreign workers with certain specialties and skills to work across 14 industries, including nursing care. There are two types: Specified Skilled Worker (i) and Specified Skilled Worker (ii), but only Specified Skilled Worker (i) is available for nursing care.
Tests for a Specified Skilled Worker (i) in Nursing Care
There are three tests for Specified Skilled Worker jobs in nursing care: Nursing Care Skills Evaluation Test, Nursing Care Japanese Language Evaluation Test, and a test to measure the level of Japanese language proficiency.

The Nursing Care Skills Evaluation Test and the Nursing Care Japanese Language Evaluation Test set the standard for workers to be an immediate asset in each field by measuring professional skills and knowledge of Japanese used on-site in nursing care. The level of Japanese language proficiency can be measured by the Japan Foundation Test for Basic Japanese or the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (N4 or better is required).

Who can I consult with if I have any problems in Japan?
Please contact the “Free consultation services for foreign care workers” provided by JICWELS. In addition to offering consultation services, JICWELS also holds events such as exchange parties for foreigners working in the nursing care field.

Is there a website to help me study Japanese?
There is a Japanese language learning website called “Nihongo wo Manabou”. This website for studying Japanese can help everyone working in nursing care in Japan to understand the N3 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test as well as basic nursing care techniques.
