Career opportunities for Sri Lankans in Japan expanded across 04 categories
Colombo (LNW): The Construction Skills Test examinations under Japan’s Specified Skilled Worker (SSW) Programme were initiated in Sri Lanka on December 1, 2023.
This marks a significant advancement in creating employment opportunities for Sri Lankans in the Japanese job market.
The SSW status allows foreign nationals with specified skills to address labour shortages in identified industry fields in Japan.
The collaborative effort between the Sri Lanka Embassy, Ministry of Labour and Foreign Employment, and the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment opens new avenues for employment in Japan.
This aligns with government initiatives to enhance overseas job opportunities for Sri Lankans and strengthen bilateral ties with Japan.
Currently, four categories are available for Sri Lankans under the SSW Programme, with the Aviation sector set to commence in March 2024.
The Embassy continues efforts to explore job opportunities in other SSW categories.
