Employment Eligibility Certificate
Inquiries: Immigration Information Center
The eligibility of a foreign resident to undertake employment can be established by checking the landing permit stamped in the passport, the residence card, or permit for activity outside the visa status. However, it may be difficult to understand exactly what activities are permitted for the specific type of status of residence without reading the details of each visa type.
For this reason, for the convenience of both the employer and the foreign student, the Employment Eligibility Certificate, which specifically states the type of employment activity the holder is allowed to do, is issued upon the request of the foreign resident.
Please apply for this certificate at the Immigration Bureau.
