The MoC is a fundamental legal framework for Japan to receive Vietnamese workers under Japan’s “specific skilled workers” programme.

Under the deal, the Japanese side will only accept specific skilled workers from Vietnam after they complete necessary procedures in line with the law of Vietnam, which enables them to enter a recognised list of the MOLISA.

The workers must be sent from organisations and businesses licenced by the MOLISA, along with Vietnamese nationals residing in Japan who are directly recruited by Japanese employers.

The MoC bans unqualified Vietnamese residing in Japan to take part in skill testing activities in Japan.

The Japanese side will apply suitable measures to prevent Vietnamese guest students to change their residential status to work in Japan, said the MoC.

Under the deal, specific skilled workers in Japan will enjoy benefits in line with the country’s immigration law, labour law and other related regulations. At the same time, they will have other rights related to Japanese and other skills training fees, travel allowance, including air tickets to Vietnam after ending the contract.

Japan will not receive Vietnamese workers in banned regions or sectors, it said.

Through the MoC, Vietnam and Japan agreed to share information of agencies and organisations authorised for sending or receiving workers to work in Japan, while coordinating with each other in management and supervision activities to prevent violations.
