Part-Time Work and Work Permission
If you work part time, you must apply for Permission to Engage in Activity Other Than That Permitted at the Tokyo Regional Immigration Bureau. Part-time work is permitted in cases that meet the conditions listed below. Note, however, that international students will only be given permission if it is thought that the part-time work in which they plan to engage will not obstruct their original objective as international students.
- No. of Work Hours: 28 hours or less per week (during long-term holidays, eight hours or less per day).
- Part-time work in the adult-entertainment industry is not permitted.
- Tax-exemption programs are available if an Application Form For Income Tax Convention is submitted at the tax office. For more information, please ask your local tax office. (Inquiries [for those living in Chofu City]: Musashi Fuchu Tax Office, 4-2 Honmachi, Fuchu-shi Tel: 042-362-4711)
