How do I get a working visa for Japan? It's probably not as complicated as you think. Generally, the majority of teachers come to Japan with programs like JET or with an eikaiwa or English Conversation School who will walk you through the steps and oversee the process. But for others, here are a few things you need to know...

First steps: show proof of a prearranged job in Japan and provide the name of a Japanese guarantor. A guarantor is a person willing to accept responsibility for your behavior while you\'re in Japan and may be your employer, a school, a relative, etc. Usually, if you致e pre-arranged employment before coming to Japan, the employer will act as your guarantor.

Next: Your sponsor or guarantor will need to obtain a "Certificate of Eligibility" on your behalf. Your guarantor must contact a local Japanese immigration office and apply for your certificate. After you receive the completed certificate, apply for a visa at the Japanese embassy or consulate nearest you.

Finally: When applying for a work visa, submit your valid passport, one 2" x 2" photo, a completed visa application form, the original Certificate of Eligibility, and one additional copy of the certificate. There is no fee for the visa and it will usually take two business days to process.

Important: B.A. or B.S. degrees are the minimum qualification required to teach legally in Japan. Generally, a visa is good for a period of either one or three years; however, if you wish to stay in Japan for longer than the time allotted and can provide evidence of your continuing employment, you can apply for an extension through the Japanese Immigration Bureau.

Good information, as long as you are employed, especially in the education field, it is generally not that hard to get a visa, thanks.
