Our Foreign Worker Employee Advisory Services caters to those who have questions about their status of residence.

Unlike Japanese nationals who can start working following a mutual agreement between them and their employer, foreigners cannot work in Japan unless they have the appropriate residence status. Due to this restriction, it is important to consider which residence status is appropriate for each foreign national if they want to work in Japan. As of March 2020, there are 29 types of residence statuses, each with different requirements.

It is not easy for foreigners to understand the complexity of residency status applications in Japan. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to collect, confirm, and consider the necessary information on the residency status.

In today’s society where globalization is speeding up, there are many companies that are considering expanding foreign employment and are seeking advice on hiring. On the other hand, there are many companies that are hesitant to hire foreign nationals because they are unfamiliar with what residence status to apply for, or the application process itself.

Our team has experience receiving various questions and providing consultations about the status of residence not only from those who contact us for the first time, but even from our clients who are already receiving our accounting, tax, or labor consulting services. If you are experiencing the issues below in your company, or would like to know more about the service, please feel free to contact us via the inquiry form or give us a call.
