Is hiring 2 full-time employees a requirement to be issued a visa? Also, how much capital do I need?
★ Explanation ★
When applying for the Business Manager visa, the Immigration Bureau will determine if the scale of the business meets any the following items:
- (1) Employment of 2 or more full-time employees
- (2) Investment of at least 5 million yen
- (3) If there is a capital of at least 5 million yen equivalent to the abovementioned, hiring of full-time employees who are Japanese or permanent residents is not a requirement but a factor that will be evaluated positively.
