A New Gateway to Working in Japan The Construction Field Skills Test for the Specified Skilled Workers will commence in December 2023

The Embassy of Japan is pleased to announce that a new skills test in the field of construction will be newly introduced in December 2023 in Sri Lanka for working in Japan as specified skilled workers. Together with the skills tests in Nursing Care, Food Service and Agriculture, which have been in place since last year, skills tests in four fields will be available in Sri Lanka.

The Embassy of Japan sincerely hopes that many talented Sri Lankans will take advantage of this new opportunity to work in Japan and master skills that will contribute not only to Japan’s construction sector but also to the future development of Sri Lanka. The Embassy of Japan will continue to provide the necessary support and cooperation for Sri Lanka’s development, further deepening our long-standing friendship with Sri Lanka.
