Nepal is all set to sign a new labour pact with Israel, paving the way for Nepalis to work in the West Asian country.
The Cabinet on Tuesday decided to sign a new agreement with Israel to send Nepalis to work as caregivers. As per the decision made public on Wednesday, the Nepali ambassador in Israel will be authorised to sign the deal with the Israeli government.
According to Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Security Rameshwar Ray Yadav, both countries will soon sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to kick start the process. “Nepali workers will get to work in Israel’s nursing sector,” Yadav told the Post. “Earlier, they used to work as private caregivers. Now they will be allowed to work at the country’s hospitals and other facilities.”
