In other related news, Japan is still looking to hire more foreign workers through its specified skills visa scheme, which is aimed at attracting blue-collar workers, as well as skilled professionals, by offering them the opportunity to gain permanent residency in the country, after meeting the programme requirements, which includes proficiency in the Japanese language along with their tenure at work.

This is great news for those who aspire to work overseas to help their families, and at the same time broaden their career, where there are more opportunities to specialize and to master one’s field, such as the case of nurses. Countries like Germany, Japan, and Saudi Arabia have invested in new technologies that would support their advanced healthcare systems. This would present a great opportunity for Filipino nurses to gain new skills and technology when it comes to healthcare and the sciences.
