Japan Visa Services

The origins of Japan Visa lie in the PwC Japan Global Visa Solutions Group established in the late 1990s. We have a long history of providing integrated visa solutions to clients doing business in Japan. As a member of the Accounting Asia Group, our immigration expertise is complemented by ex-Big 4 tax and finance professionals who can assist clients with interrelated individual and corporate issues associated with visa applications.

Our key visa related capabilities include the following:

  1. Japan Work Visa applications.
  2. Dependent / family member visas.
  3. Japan Permanent Residence applications.
  4. Guidance and assistance with investor and entrepreneur visa applications.
  5. Guidance for assignees in special situations including those seeking to bring a same-sex partner to Japan.
  6. Post-arrival counseling regarding individual tax issues.
  7. Assistance with tax efficient compensation planning.

At the core of our practice is the Japan Work Visa Solutions Group. This Group focuses on obtaining appropriate Japan work visas for assignees and dependents visas for their family members.

Our Japan Visa Self-Sponsorship Practice assists entrepreneurs and others seeking to live and work in Japan independently.

Entrepreneurs and others who wish to live and work in Japan independently present singular issues since they lack an employer to help them fulfill Japan’s work visa requirements.

Our Japan Permanent Residence Practice helps eligible applicants to obtain permission to reside in Japan indefinitely, much like a Japanese national.

Applying for a visa usually brings with it tax and compensation issues. Immigration issues are often linked to individual tax and compensation planning. Corporate tax issues arise in the selection of an appropriate business entity and in providing compensation to director level employees. Japan Visa offers a wide range of advisory services to meet all our clients’ needs.
