The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), through its embassies and consulates in each participating country, is the first line of contact for JET Programme participants. Based on the acceptance guidelines for each country, MOFA recruits and selects participants through overseas Embassies and Consulates.
● At overseas Embassies and Consulates, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will hold information sessions for interested applicants, review applications, hold interviews and notify successful candidates.
● In addition the Embassies and Consulates will hold Pre-departure orientations and Q&A sessions help to ease anxieties and to ensure that new participants can begin the Programme fully prepared.
● Sponsors a "welcome back" reception and work closely with the local JETAA (JET Alumni Association).
