Wagawiki "Japanese work visas"

Postby dmizer » Tue 10.02.2007 2:42 am

In the Wagawiki page for information on Japanese work visas: [wagawiki]

It erroneously states that a 4 year college degree is required to get a "normal visa."

You may get a visa if you have:
1) A 4 year degree with some desired technical skill (usually native level English)
2) Prove 10 years of specialized experience in the field you intend to work in.
3) Fluent (near native) Japanese and strong specialized skills.

The last two options do not require a college degree. I know this is possible because I do not have a 4 year degree, but I was able to prove 10 years of experience with technical writing and editing, and I had no problem getting a visa (even with limited Japanese ability).

Also, it might be helpful to include an offsite link to Japanese immigration site in addition to the Japanese consulate in the US: www.immi-moj.go.jp loads of helpful information there.
