Hello. I'm Nakajima, in charge of applying for relationship-based visa.
“High Skilled Professional” system called the Japanese version of the Green Card has been introduced, and it enabled you to apply for a Permanent Resident within a minimum of 1 to 3 years. This is a special case of the basic requirement of "living in Japan for more than 10 years". Please check if you have any possibility.
Let's check the requirements according to the guidelines!
First, try to calculate your points.
“Points-based system” is a system that preferential immigration control and residency management treatment will be granted, with the aim of promoting the acceptance of highly-skilled foreign professionals in Japan.
If you have more than 70 points in this calculation, you may be able to take advantage of this system!!
Requirements for application of Permanent Resident
① The person is of good conduct.
The person observes Japanese laws and his/her daily living as a resident does
not invite any social criticism.

The person does not financially depend on someone in the society in his/her
daily life, and his/her assets or ability, etc. are assumed to continue to provide him/her with a stable base of livelihood into the future.
Please be careful if your salary reduces when you change jobs.
You may be judged that you cannot expect a stable life.
③ a) The person's permanent residence is regarded to be in accord with the
interests of Japan
A special case was recognized in this part.
