I think that the status of residence for foreigners working in Japan is often "Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services".
In the case of this "Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services" status of residence, it is not possible to engage in work that mainly involves service work or manufacturing work.
However, foreigners who have graduated from a Japanese university, etc., can get these jobs by meeting the following requirements.
- Must have graduated from a four-year university or completed a graduate school in Japan.
Graduates of junior colleges and vocational schools are not eligible.
- Receiving a remuneration equal to or greater than the remuneration received when a Japanese person is engaged.
- In addition to the Japanese used in everyday situations, the ability to understand Japanese used in a wide range of situations, including Japanese that is logically somewhat complicated, must be demonstrated through tests or other means.
Regarding Japanese proficiency, it is necessary to have a score of 480 or higher on the Japanese Language Proficiency Test N1 or the BJT Business Japanese Proficiency Test.
- The content of the work must be recognized as utilizing the broad knowledge and applied skills acquired at a Japanese university or graduate school.
