After the workers and employers sign the agreement, other processes will move forward. The department will also have to form a selection committee for the selection of workers.
The committee will call only the applicants who have reached the educational qualification for the weight and height test. Applicants who have reached weight and height will also have to take an English language test. The department will select the workers on the basis of the marks obtained in the English language and send them to PIBA.

The visa fee of the selected workers will be borne by the concerned workers. However, other expenses are to be borne by the worker or employer as per the agreement between the worker and the employer.
The department will make a recommendation to the Israeli Embassy in Nepal for the visa of Nepali workers who have completed the employment agreement.
