What is the process of immigration to Japan?

The immigration procedure of a country is an important aspect to keep in mind before migration. Immigration processes are not just rule-oriented but also contain a lot of information that needs to be assimilated by people looking to move into a new country. If you are looking to move to Japan, take some time to delve deeper into its immigration process, visa requirements as well as several other aspects that are interlinked with it. We have curated a list of pointers that we think can help you navigate your immigration journey to Japan.

Japan is pretty deliberate with its visa procedure. The type of visa that you opt for should be based on the purpose of stay, activities you intend to pursue and the duration of your visit. There are about 27 types of visas that are available at different authorized offices in Japan. Assessing the right one for you shouldn’t be a hassle if you familiarise yourself with the three broad categories of visas. These are:-

  1. Working Visa – one which allows you to work in the country.
  2. Non-Working Visa- for non-professional purposes and,
  3. Family Visa – granted as per family status.

You may be eligible for more than one type of visa, so be sure to read about the different visa types and then choose the one that might work best for you.

It would be worthwhile to know that while applying for a working visa, there is a point-based system followed which could grant you smooth immigration into Japan. This system assigns points based on the salary earned, professional experience, age and knowledge of the Japanese language. Securing above 70 points could grant you an array of benefits on your immigration experience. Some of these benefits include a grant of 5 years stay, speeding up of the immigration paper process and even a grant of permission for the spouse to work in Japan.

So let us look at some of the documents you would require for your immigration process.
