** Highly-Skilled Foreign Professionals FAQ

Q: I entered Japan as a domestic worker as specified in Item 2 of the Public Notice on Designated Activities. My employer's child was under 13 when I entered the country. When the child turns 13, will I still be allowed to remain in Japan?

A: Even in cases where the employer’s child has reached the age of 13 at the time of the domestic worker applying for permission for extension of the period of stay, if the domestic worker is employed by the same employer, it will be possible for the domestic worker to extend his/her period of stay.
However, in cases where there has been a change in the employer, and if, at the time of the domestic worker extending his/her period of stay based on a contract with the new employer, such employer does not have a child under the age of 13 nor a spouse unable to carry out normal daily housework due to illness, etc., the period of stay cannot be extended.
