Working Holiday Visa New Zealand - We often get e-mails from recent graduates who want to teach in Japan but don't have 4 year degrees. Usually they have a 2 year associate degree or just some teaching certification under their belts.
They then usually read about how strict Japan is about having a 4 year degree in order to get sponsorship for teaching and give up or write us an e-mail. We get e-mails from people in Spain, Hungary, Norway etc. What many of them don't know is that Japan has agreements with many countries. And that the ordinary fairly strict guidelines that apply to American citizens and others not on the WHV list don't apply to them.
The bulk of the regulation processes and rules are basically the same for almost every country. It is beyond the scope of this page to list all stipulations for every country and we don't need to despite the fact that these agreements are a bi-lateral.
The application process is fairly straight forward and pretty much on the painless side. Firstly it's important that the whole idea of a working holiday visa is exactly that... it's in the title. A holiday. If it weren't it would be called a "work visa". So the main point is that these slack visa regulations are put in place as more of a cultural exchange than a mechanism to fuel an economy on workers from other countries.
What this means is that it is okay to work to pay for your holiday but the main reason for coming to Japan under the WHV arrangement is that it affords you the chance to experience Japanese culture.
