Artist Visa (Detailed Description)

Scope of "Artist" Visa

  • Composer, Lyricist, Artist Painter, Sculptor, Craftsman, Writer, Photographer
  • Foreigners who provide artistic guidance such as music, art, literature, photograph, performance, dance, movie, and etc.
  • If applicants engage in theatrical or musical performance activities (show business), the "Entertainer" status is applicable. (e.g., Conductor of Orchestra) 

Notes for Visa Acquisition and Maintenance

  • When foreigners apply for acquisition of the "Artist" visa, they must show they will be able to obtain enough compensation to make a stable living in Japan from their artistic activities. Therefore, they are usually required to have "substantial achievements" in their previous artistic activities. 
  • When foreigners apply for extension of period of stay of the "Artist" visa, their amount of income received from artistic activities and their tax payment status are important factors.
