Patterns to get business manager visa

There are some patterns to get business manager visa.


It depends on situations, like:

Your business size

Whether you can get support from your friends or relatives in Japan

You already research Japanese market or not

You already have dealing partner or not, etc.



Temporary visitor visa → 4 months business manager visa → Business manager visa



Temporary visitor visa → Business manager visa



4months business manager visa → Business manager visa



(In case you have supporters who can assist your business preparation in Japan)

Business manager visa



(In case you already have other visa in Japan)

Other visa (status change) → Business manager visa


Thank you.

How to know if they are real or fake?

Continued from yesterday.
To avoid using fake lawyers, what should we do?

1. Meeting directly

If you are in Japan, you should meet him or her in person.
You can check them, their office, and their attitude toward your questions.

If you are not in Japan, you should use faithful or reliable friends to find them.
And through your friends, check above things.


2. Checking license card

We have an obligation to show our license card if we are asked to do so.
So, don’t hesitate to ask them to show the card.
On the card, you can see their license number and which association they belong to.
By checking this, you can confirm it from association’s member search.


3.Receiving name card

Usually, when we meet our visitors for the first time, we will give them our name card.
By checking the information on the card, we may get the clue if the lawyer is true or not.


4.Be careful for those who demand that you should pay them immediately

Actually, there is no rule as to the timing of receiving money, but usually, in my opinion, it is unbelievable that they ask you to pay money immediately after they meet you.
In my case, after hearing information or situation from you, if I think I can help you, I will tell you the fee for process.


5.Confirming whether the lawyer can communicate with you in English or your language

Secondhand information might be the cause of misunderstanding.
You should communicate with the lawyer directly, not through assistants or brokers.

Tax certificate

I made this video last autumn, but content is worth sharing with you even now, I think.
For your reference.
Thank you.

Tax certificate

Immigration Office asks us to submit "The certificate of municipal and prefectural inhabitant tax" and "The certificate of paying municipal and prefectural inhabitant tax".(Thank you. This is the only way to tell you my gratitude.)

Consultation about Business Visa at TOKYO on June 15


On June 15th, I am going to go on a business trip to Tokyo.

Before going back to Osaka, I have some time to offer consultation.
So, if you want to consult about business manager visa at Tokyo, please send private message to me.

I will arrange the time for consultation.

Consultation fee is 10,800 yen.
After consultation, if you decide to use my service, I will put this into regular fee.

Thank you.

Can I use capital money before finishing company registration?

Can I use capital money before finishing company registration?

Can you tell me if I can use capital money that was deposited to bank account until company registration finishes?
I want to use it for my business activity.

You can use the money deposited in bank account for your business.

After depositing the capital money, you can use it to pay office rent fee or fee for company registration, etc.

You don’t need to keep it until registration finishes.

The flow is like this.

(1) Certification of Articles of Incorporation
(2) Depositing the capital money
(3) Making copies of the bank account book or getting bank certificate which shows the deposit of the money.
(4) Company registration

So, after (3), even if registration process (4) is unfinished, you can withdraw and use it.

Dangerousness of self-interpretation

Dangerousness of self-interpretation

I got a question like this.

“I live in ×××.
I have spouse visa until 2019-3-4.
Now I divorced.
I should change my visa to business visa.”

“When did you divorce?” I asked to him.
He said, “Two years ago”.

This is the end of the story.

He did not report the fact of divorce to Immigration office when he divorced.
Under current rule, even if his visa is valid until 2019, once he divorces, his visa will be canceled within 6 months.

His mistake comes from his self-interpretation that even if he divorced, he can continue staying here until expiration.

He can’t change his status to business visa, because he is overstay now.

He should have changed his visa within 6 months after he divorced 2 years ago.

There’s nothing that can be done about it now.

Please be careful about it.

Thank you.
