I have established a business at a shared office my friend is renting. Can I still apply for a Business Manager resident status?
★ Explanation ★
To be granted a Business Manager visa, the applicant must secure an space (an office or store) in Japan where he/she will operate the business. It is generally preferred for an applicant to rent their own office space. However, if the floor plan of the shared office is wide enough to provide a clear division between “tenants”, it may be possible for it to be accepted as a valid office space for the Business Manager visa application.
