The Technical Intern Training Program will be replaced by the new system called "Nurturing Employment". The system will relax the restrictions on job changes, which were generally prohibited under the Technical Intern Training Program. The government is planning to implement this new system around 2027. The Specified Skilled Visa is intended to be the next step in the "Nurturing Employment" system, allowing highly skilled individuals to continue working in Japan. By obtaining the "Specified Skilled Visa Type 2", long-term employment and accompanying family members will also be possible.
