The new categories of work visas for foreigners will begin on Abril 2019. One issue is that the rushed revision to the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Law is short on specifics in many areas, and officials have three months at the outside to put things in order.

Fourteen business sectors have been cited as likely areas for new arrivals. Under the new work visa, technical trainees will be exempt from the test for the specific skills visa if they have been in Japan for three years. As with other details, a ministerial order scheduled to be issued by the Justice Ministry this month is expected to provide that information.

Countries sending their citizens as workers to Japan are closely monitoring the revision of the immigration law to accept more foreign workers. Many tend to welcome the move, but some question if Japan is ready to expand its foreign workforce.

In the Philippines, an AFP article posted to the Rappler internet media pointed out that the plan of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government to allow workers with high skills and Japanese-language ability to extend their stays for a long time sounded “alarm among conservatives, including some within Abe’s own administration.” It also introduced the opinion of an activist supporting foreign workers that Japan should treat foreigners “not just as workers but humans.”
