Working Visas

Demand of the labor force from abroad is expected to rise continuously along with the aging of the Japanese society. When a foreigner works in Japan, they need to apply for the right kind of working visa.
In Japan, foreign workers are protected from unfair exploitation by employers and thus there is common requirement for each working visa. A foreign worker cannot normally engage in general manual work and should be paid no less salary than what a Japanese national would have received for the comparable job.
