The event was jointly organized by the Department of Overseas Work, the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam and the Japanese language school ARC Academy.

Vietnamese applicants have successfully completed Japanese language classes and met all other VJEPA program requirements.

Since 2012, the VJEPA program has launched a total of 10 training courses and brought nearly 1,700 Vietnamese candidates to work in various Japanese hospitals and elderly care facilities.

Pham Viet Huong, deputy director of the Department of Overseas Work, said Japan currently suffers from a severe shortage of human resources, especially in the medical field. She revealed that the Overseas Labor Department is now accepting applications for the selection of nurses and caregivers until the end of October 31.

The selected candidates are young people under the age of 35 who have obtained their college diploma or those who hold a bachelor’s degree in nursing and general nursing. The Japanese and Vietnamese governments will bear the costs of learning the Japanese language for one year, accommodation and living expenses during the training courses.

While studying and working in Japan, applicants will receive a salary of between 27 and 30 million VND.

Candidates who wish to participate in the program can apply directly to the Department of Overseas Work, or they can send their applications by mail to 41B Ly Thai To, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi, or submit them on the website www. dolab.gov.vn.
