What is “Specified Skilled Worker”?
About the status of residence “Specified Skilled Worker” please check HERE
You can stay in Japan up to 5 years with this working visa.
First, you have to pass all the test required: JLPT N4 or higher, Nursing care skills evaluation test and Nursing care Japanese language evaluation test.
Now we skip JLPT and tell you about the latter two.
- Those who take the test should be 17 years old or over, by the Western style of calculating age.
- Those who has Japanese nationality are not allowed to take the test.
- Those with a status of residence can take the test.
- Those who are staying in Japan on a “short-term stay” residency status can take the test.
(Those without a history of mid to long-term residency can also take the test.)
Those who do not have a residency status (illegal immigrants etc.) will not be permitted to take the test.
*However, please note that even if you pass the test, it does not guarantee you will receive a “Specified Skilled Worker” residency status, and even if you apply for a certificate of eligibility, or apply for a change of residence status, you may not necessarily receive them.
