When I visit a company for the first time, I will bring our office brochure and a presentation document. Especially when I have no idea what kind of trouble they are in, or what they need, I will bring a proposal, or more exactly a reference material.
For your info., I uploaded them to our office Web site. I made PDF files out of powerpoint files, which caused small conversion troubles on pictures. But still the contents can be understood. (Sorry, they are all in Japanese.) On second thought, this materila was made for a certain corporation, so I have to revise it for others.“Office Brochure”“VISA for employees in Japan”
Table of Contents:
1. Discussion on Immigration Policy in Japan :
Population Decreasing Society
and Permanent Resident Based Immigration Policy
2. VISA appropriate for various employment cases
3. VISA for the employee’s family
4. Permanent Resident or Naturalization of the employee
Reference: List of Status of Residence
The contents of the reference material is made for a company which has not yet employed foreign nationals. But such know-hows as how to read an alien registration card is not explained yet.
First of all, for the owners of the company, the document explains “Population Decreasing Society and Permanent Resident Based Immigration Policy.” This is a background info. and summary of the immigration policy proposed by Mr. Sakanaka Hidenori, Director of Japan Immigration Policy Institute
. The document is made for a presentation which will have additional explanations in the meeting. So, it does not explain the details. When you get interested in the immigration policy proposal, please read his newly published book “Immigrant Nation NIPPON” (NIHON KAJO PUBLISHER.)
Next, the document shows various VISA appropriate for different employment cases: a case that a foreign national is employed by a foreign corporation or a case that a foreign national is employed by a Japanese corporation. Also, VISA can be different for what kind of job they are doing. Illustrations of each case were made for the presentation. So, the details are not explained. When you want to know the details, please see our office Web site
Then, the document explains VISA for the family of the employee. It’s because company owners always care for their employees’ families and they always have strong interest in this issue. So, it explains VISA for parents, spouses and children, etc.
Finally, the document explains how the employees can get Permanent Resident Permission or Naturalization Permission. The main topic is about resident term requirement.
* However, it depends on our actual discussion in the meeting, whether or not this document is explained. It could happen that this document is just briefly browsed, instead, I hear more from the company owners or staffs.
