13:04 JST, March 30, 2022
People who have fled Ukraine amid Russia’s invasion will be provided support in seeking employment in Japan if they wish to settle in the country, according to an outline shared Tuesday by several government sources.
The outline states that an organization affiliated with the Foreign Ministry will offer Japanese lessons and business matchmaking with municipalities and companies, and hotels administered by the Justice Ministry will provide housing.
The Japanese lessons and tips for job interviews will be held at a facility run by the Foundation for the Welfare and Education of the Asian People’s Refugee Assistance Headquarters. After a certain period of time, the headquarters will introduce them to companies and local governments that are willing to offer housing and jobs.
As a special envoy of Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Justice Minister Yoshihisa Furukawa will on Friday visit Poland, which has accepted many refugees from Ukraine. The central government wants to have all support measures fully operational in order to accept these people to Japan and is considering allowing those wishing to come to Japan to board the Japanese government plane leaving Poland.
