KATHMANDU, Sept 11: Israel is all set to hire more than 60 caregivers from Nepal under the proposed Government-to-Government recruitment system, according to the Department of Foreign Employment. 

As per the initial demand, Israel had informed it needs 60 caregivers, the department said, adding that the Israeli authorities have said that the number will rise. 

Under the proposed rule, both Nepali men and women can go to Israel paying a maximum amount of around Rs 65,000.

Israel is one of the lucrative destinations for Nepali caregivers.  It had stopped hiring Nepali workers through recruitment agencies since 2009 citing huge irregularities in the recruitment system of the foreign employment agencies.

“The government will initiate formal process of selection of workers once it receives formal request for caregivers,” said Mohan Adhikari, spokesperson of the department. A recruiting agency from Israel will also be involved in the selection process, he said.
