【外国人ビザ】So many visas in Japan!


Hello. I'm Nakajima, in charge of Applying for Relationship-based VISA.

Do you have any idea what “VISA” really is?
You will say “Of course yes,” but please let me introduce it once again.

Foreign nationals who stay in Japan must have Visa
(Status of Residence, Zairyu-Shikaku).

The Visa is roughly categorized into 2 groups, “Working Visa” and “Relationship-based Visa.”

There are 20 visas in the Working Visa category:
Diplomat, Official, Professor, Artist, Religious Activities, Journalist, Designated Activities, Highly Skilled Professionals, Business Manager, Legal/ Accounting Services, Medical Services, Researcher, Instructor, Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/ International Services, Intra-company Transferee, Nursing Care Service, Entertainer, Skilled Labor, Specified Skilled Workers, Technical Intern Training.
Those who have the visa above are bound to the activities which is permitted by the Visa.

There are 4 visas in the Relationship-based Visa category:
Permanent Resident, Spouse or Child of Japanese National, Spouse or Child of Permanent Resident, Long-Term Resident
Those who have the visa above can work without any restrictions.

Other kind of Visas:
Cultural Activities, Temporary Visitor, Student, Trainee Dependent
Those who have the visa above cannot work.

If you wish to do the activities which is not permitted by your Visa, you must apply for Permission to Engage in Activity Other Than That Permitted under the Status of Residence Previously Granted.

There are so many, and the system is so complicated. Wouldn’t you think it could be difficult to figure out which of the Visa is most suitable for you?
According to the situation, each member of your family may have the different Visa.

Please feel free to contact us if you have questions and concerns.

Thank you for reading.
