Apply for certification of employment qualification

What is the Employment Qualification Certificate Grant Application?

What is an application for permission to engage in activities outside the status of qualification?

The employment qualification certificate is a certificate of employment that means that when a foreign resident staying in Japan is changing jobs, the Minister of Justice proves that "the job content of the new company is the same as that of the previous company, so there is no problem with the status of residence" I called the written document.

Application for delivery of the document is called application for qualification certificate issuance.

Requirements for employment qualification certificate issuance application

It must be at one of the following 3 points:
  1. Having a status of residence to work (working visa)
  2. Have permission to work outside the status of qualification
  3. Having a status of residence without employment restriction (status visa)

Attention point of employment qualification certificate grant application

This certificate of employment will be issued even if the work content of the newly-worked company is "not applicable" or "not applicable" in the activity content of the status of residence currently held. If it does not apply, it is thought that it is better to change the work content in that company or refrain from changing to that company.

Application for granting certification of employment qualification is not an obligation, but as a result of being issued, the applicability of the status of residence in the new company will be proved, so the number of documents to be submitted when applying for renewal period will be few. Conversely, if you change jobs without issuing a work qualification certificate and apply for the extension of a period of stay, you are forced to change your status of residence if you do not qualify for the status of residence. If the expiration date is approaching, you need to leave the country once, so we recommend that you apply for employment qualification certificate by the applicant himself / herself or the company when you change your career.
