In accordance with the agreement, the Japanese government is testing the Japanese language skills of Nepalese workers as a first step in the recruitment process. However, the Tokyo government has yet to complete the modality of such a test. “In addition to the fact that relations between Nepal and Japan are leading to new heights, this understanding will help realize the dreams of young Nepalis working in Japan,” Bista said. “Equal treatment of Nepalese workers and their Japanese counterparts with similar rights and institutions is one of the encouraging aspects of understanding.” In the meantime, the ministry has begun work on a series of guidelines for the detachment of Nepalese workers to Japan under the government`s terms. According to Ghimire, the two countries were preparing to implement the agreement when the Covid 19 pandemic occurred.

We expect the governments of both countries to approve the draft labour agreement soon. This will pave the way for both countries to sign the bilateral labour agreement and send Nepalese workers to the East Asian country,” said Labour Minister Mahesh Prasad Dahal, adding that the government plans to send Nepalese workers to Japan from April. Gokarna Bista, Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Security, said the agreement would now fulfill the dreams of Nepalese youth who reach and work in Japan. “The long-standing relationship between the two countries and the good reputation that Nepalese citizens have gained in Japan have been factors in the selection of Nepalese workers,” Ambassador Masamichi Saigo said after the signing of the agreement. The revision of the Immigration Control Act defined two new visa statutes: Qualified Workers of Specified (i) and Specified Skills Workers (ii) – which would allow foreign workers to be admitted to Japan. Although both countries have completed the process of hiring Nepalese workers, paid workers and minimal facility that Nepalese workers will receive in Japan, the government has not disclosed the contents of the draft employment contract.
