Project Outline

The “Specified Skilled” residency status to accept new foreign human resources is a system aimed at addressing the serious labor shortage in Japan by accepting experienced foreign human resources with specific expertise and skills who will provide immediate support in industrial fields where it is difficult to secure human resources even if efforts are made to improve productivity and secure domestic human resources. In this website, we will be delivering useful information for accepting companies and foreign human resources in the agricultural field under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

This project is operated by JTB Corporation as the implementing company of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries’ “Training and Securing of Leaders in 2021/Countermeasure Project Cost Subsidies (Comprehensive Support for Acceptance of Foreign Human Resources in the Manufacture of Food and Beverages Field and the Food Service Industry Field)”.​
