In Japan, there are a number of different types of visas available to foreigners, including the management visa. This visa is designed for foreigners who want to start or manage a business in Japan.
To qualify for a management visa, you must meet the following requirements:
1. Must have secured an independent business office for business purposes.
2. Must employ two or more full-time employees in Japan or have a capital or investment of not less than 500 million yen.
3. Must be able to explain in a business plan (a Japanese document) that the business will be operated stably and continuously.
4. If working as a manager of a business (such as a department manager, branch manager, or so-called hired president who does not invest), it is necessary to have three or more years of experience in business management and to receive a salary of not less than the amount that a Japanese person would receive in the same position.
One of the requirements for a management visa is that you must employ at least two full-time employees. However, if you have a minimum of 500,000 yen in investment capital, you are exempt from this requirement.
