Visa Situation for Travelling with Family to Teach in Japan


(Ireland)

I am looking at traveling to Japan with my family. I will be working while the husband minds the kids. Do you know how the visas would work? Say I found a company to sponsor me, how would the visa work for my kids and husband? I am eligible for a 90 tourist visa but want to stay 6 months or more

Thanks for your help

Visa Situation for Travelling with Family to Teach in Japan

Hello,
According to MOFA the regulations for inviting a foreign national to Japan for a span of time greater than 90 days, will require visas.

You will have to prepare documentation for each person. Passport, visa application form, photographs and any other documentation that is required by Japan for those from Ireland.

MOFA says:" In the case of an invitation for the purpose of a short-term stay (in the case that you are inviting relatives or friends, employees of a company with which you do business, etc. for a period of stay of 90 days or less and will not be paying them an income), please write a Letter of Reason for Invitation and draw up a Schedule of Stay.

If you are inviting a person from China / Russia / CIS countries / Georgia, and if you will pay travel expenses instead of the visa applicant (who wishes to come to Japan), a Letter of Guarantee, the certificate of residence of the guarantor, and documents confirming the capacity of the guarantor to pay the expenses should also be prepared in addition to the above documents regardless of the applicant's nationality."

(2) In the case of an invitation for the purpose of a long-term stay (spouse, working, studying, etc.), it is recommended that you start by applying to your nearest Regional Immigration Bureau to have a Certificate of Eligibility issued.
(3) Once you have prepared all of the above documents, send them to the visa applicant.
