Immigration to Japan: Business Management Visa

The immigration program for Japan is the Business Management Visa, which was introduced by the Japanese Immigration Bureau in 2006 to welcome individuals who wish to establish businesses and settle in Japan. Applicants are required to establish a company in Japan with a minimum registered capital of 5 million yen, and there are no restrictions on the type of business that can be operated. Once the company is established, the applicant can submit an application for the Business Management Visa to the Immigration Bureau. The initial visa is granted for one year, and upon meeting certain requirements, it can be renewed for 1, 3, or 5 years. After five years, it is possible to apply for naturalization, and after ten years, permanent residency can be sought. In 2015, in order to attract more foreign business management talent to settle in Japan and enhance the country's economic vitality, the "Investment Business Visa" was changed to the "Business Management Visa," placing greater emphasis on the applicant's business and management skills within the company.
