    Default Japanese Nikkei (Japanese descendants) Visa

    Hello. I am looking for information about the Japanese Nikkei (Japanese descendants) Visa. [if there is already a thread about this or information you can link me to, it would be appreciated].

    I have found a lot of information about required documents for application, and I understand the process. I am mainly curious about working allowances on this visa. Can a person with a Nikkei visa get a job anywhere / freelance / etc. without needing a company to provide salary information or sponsorship? I would assume this is the case, but I want to make sure. In the case of certain visas, like dependent, special working permits are required in addition to the visa. I don't know if such cases exist for the Nikkei visa.

    Much appreciated if anyone can direct me to the answer or else more information on the subject. Thank you.

    According to this website the descendants of Japanese nationals visa has no restrictions on what type of work you do, so you would be able to freelance, although of course it's not an official government source so take it with a grain of salt. From the looks of things though it'll be one of the best visas to come here on.

    One of my friends came over when she was 18, no college degree she worked in a retail store. I think you can do anything with that visa.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    I have a social life (honest), but I do end up browsing ITIL on weekend train journeys.

    The sig is a setting. I don't know why so many people leave it on.
