Foreigners working in Japan must have working visa.
On the other hand, a foreigner residing in Japan who is married to a Japanese national can apply for the status of residence of "Spouse or Child of Japanese National".
Then, if a foreigner with a working visa marries a Japanese, should the status of residence be changed to "Spouse or Child of Japanese National"?
The bottom line is that either is fine.
In other words, you should choose the status of residence that is convenient for the foreigner concerned.
For example, a foreigner with a status of residence of "Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services" does not need to apply for a change if he or she continues to work at the same company.
However, in the case of the status of residence of "Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services", the status of residence is strictly based on the content of the work, so if you change jobs, the eligibility will be reviewed at the time of renewal.
If this is the status of residence of “Spouse or Child of Japanese National”, there are no work restrictions, so there is an advantage that you have more options when changing jobs.
