Working Holiday Visa for your Citizens
For the purpose of promoting greater mutual understanding between Japan and your country, the governments of these two countries agreed to start a working holiday scheme to help encourage the exchange of young people. This program makes it possible for citizens of one country to enter the other primarily for a holiday over an extended period, and also to engage in employment as an incidental aspect of their trip(study) in order to supplement their stay funds.
Upon arrival you’ll receive a 180-day visa which can be extended another 180 days during your stay in Japan.
To study Japanese at our school, you need a visa of 3 months or more. If you wish to continue studying Japanese, you will need to change to a student visa. Please contact us for details.
