The “College Student” status of residence is for receiving an education in Japan. Therefore, when acquiring a part-time job, you must submit an “Application for Permission to Engage in Activity other than that Permitted under the Visa Status Previously Granted” to the Immigration Bureau.

 

【How to apply】

Take the following four documents, and go to the Immigration Bureau.
The process will take from two weeks to two months.

 

【Working hours】

It is determined by law that “Activity other than that Permitted under the Visa Status Previously Granted”(part-time employment) shall be limited to 28 hours per week (As exceptions, 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week, during summer, winter, and spring breaks).
You must never work part-time beyond the working limit; you could be punished by repatriation, a fine, or imprisonment.

*You are prohibited from working par-time in entertainment and amusement businesses, and sex-related businesses. This includes work such as washing dishes or cleaning in ‘snack’(sunakku)bars , nightclubs, and bars or cafes that serve food and drink to customers while entertaining them.

 

【If you are working part-time in Waseda University】

If you are a regular student working as a Teaching Assistant (TA) or Research Assistant (RA) at Waseda University with a “College Student” status of residence, you do not need to apply for permission to engage in “Activity other than that Permitted under the Visa Status Previously Granted.” However, working hours as either a TA or an RA, or both a TA and an RA at Waseda University must be under 20 hours per week.

*As a general rule, non-regular students (including exchange students) cannot work as a TA or an RA, but if circumstances allow non-regular students to work as a TA/RA, permission to engage in “Activity other than that Permitted under the Visa Status Previously Granted” will be needed.
*Regular students who will be doing work other than as a TA/RA will need to apply for permission to engage in “Activity other than that Permitted under the Visa Status Previously Granted.”
