Cases of those who were granted or not granted permission

In order to obtain the permission of status of residence of "Business Manager", an applicant needs to prove that the facilities to be used as the office for the business are located in Japan.

Ministry of Justice published the "Clarification of the standards of the status of residence for "Business Manager" in August, 2005. It states the cases where the adequate condition was recognized and permission was granted, and where permission was not granted.

    Type of Procedure: Certificate of Eligibility

    Type of Procedure: Certificate of Eligibility

  • 1
    Type of Business: Managing a Business (Limited Company)
    Type of Procedure: Extension of Period of Stay
    Overview: There was not any nameplate of the company on entrance and mailbox of the "home-cum-office", and the office did not seem to be undertaking any business activity.  Moreover, the payroll and attendance books had not been kept in the office.

    Type of Business: Sole Distributorship (Limited Company)

Point
  • If an applicant establishes his/her office in "home-cum-office", he/she should obtain permission from a lessor in advance to use the rental space as "Office".

  • If an applicant forms a "home-cum-office", nameplates of the company should be clearly attached on the entrance and mailbox of the "home-cum-office".

  • If an applicant forms a "home-cum-office", the space of residence and office should be partitioned and set up office equipment inside. Moreover, the burden of expenses relating to the public utility charges should be clearly concluded in advance.
