1  How to engage in activity that is not permitted in current status of residence in Japan.

Assumed that a foreign national named Nancy has status of residence ( in common parlance, visa. ) in Japan.

She has status of residence ( visa ) as “Specialist in Humanities/International Services” ( JINBUN CHISIKI/KOKUSAI GYOMU ).

However, she also wants to work as dancer. ( Hereinafter this kind of activity is referred to  “second activity” )
In that case, she needs to obtain ”Permission to Engage in Activity other than activity that is already Permitted under the current Status of Residence”. ( shikakugai katsudo kyoka = 資格外活動許可)

Assumed that a person named “Jack” is a overseas student in Japan.
And he wants to engage in part time job to cover school expenses.
In this case, he needs to obtain ”Permission to Engage in Activity other than activity that is already Permitted under the current Status of Residence”. ( shikakugai katsudo kyoka = 資格外活動許可)

However, even if it is better for him, he can not work at adult entertainment business ( fuzoku eigyo.  ) .

😳 ” In the case a foreign national who has status of residence ( visa ) of  ” engineer ( gijutsu )”, “Specialist in Humanities/International Services ( jinbun chikiki / kokusai gyomu )”, engages in activity that is not permitted in her current status of residence ( if she can receive remuneration through her activity ), she needs to obtain  ”Permission to Engage in Activity other than activity that is already Permitted under the current Status of Residence”. ( shikakugai katsudo kyoka = 資格外活動許可).

But, she can not obtain this permit if her second activity is unskilled labor ( = tanjun rodo. For example,  job in convenience store, waitress etc.  ).

( In the case of overseas student, she can engage in unskilled labor in Japan. otherwise, student can not find a job in Japan….)

😛 In the case a foreigner’s second activity is same range of her current range of status of residence, her second activity is NOT ”  activity that is NOT already Permitted under the current Status of Residence”.

So, in the case Nancy is now working as an interpreter ( Hereinafter referred to “first activity” ) in a company during weekday and if she wants to work as as an interpreter on weekend as free lancer, she does not need to obtain this permit.

And in the case she does not receive any remuneration through her second activity, she does not need to obtain this permit.
So, she can go to university without permit, as long as she keeps works as “Specialist in Humanities/International Services”.

2 Requirements to obtain ”Permission to Engage in Activity other than activity that is already Permitted under the current Status of Residence”. ( shikakugai katsudo kyoka = 資格外活動許可).

1   Her second activity does not inflict her current activity.
2   She sustains current activity.
3  Her second activity is not unskilled labor. ( Except for overseas student )
4   At the timing of application of this permit, she has not caused any trouble and it is considered that permitting is appropriate.
5  Her second activity is not related to adult entertainment business.

😮  In the case a foreigner has status of residence ( visa status ) of student or dependent, if she wants to engage in activity that will produce income, she needs to obtain this permit.

In the case, she has status of residence of “dependent” or ” student “, she will be given comprehensive permission to engage in activities outside of the current status of residence.
However, a maximum of 28 hours a week is stipulated in law.
( Though, She cannot engage at adult entertainment businesses )

In case of comprehensive permission, she does not need to fix her employer. Even if she changes her job, she does not need to obtain this permit again.

In the case, she is spouse of Japanese national, there is not regulation of kind of job to engage.
So, she can work at adult entertainment businesses.

3 Revoke of Permission to Engage in Activity other than activity that is already Permitted under the current Status of Residence and penalty.

In the case, she has obtained Permit to Engage in Activity other than activity that is already Permitted under the current Status of Residence”. ( shikakugai katsudo kyoka = 資格外活動許可),

1   If she has violated of condition of this permit, or
2   If she does not continue her first activity, or
3   If there is other reason that the permit should be revoked,

this permit shall be revoked.

If she engages in second activity without Permit to Engage in Activity other than activity that is already Permitted under the current Status of Residence”. ( shikakugai katsudo kyoka = 資格外活動許可),  her activity is illegal work.  And she will receive deportation order.
Even if she does not receive deportation order, there is a possibility that at the timing of renewal of her status of residence, duration of stay in Japan  is shortened or not granted.

If she has received deportation order, she can not make a landing in Japan for five years.

I will assist you to obtain this permit.
