Visa procedures for Part-time job

What is permission to engage in activities other than those permitted under the status of residence previously granted?

A status of residence of "Student" is given to those who are residing in Japan for the purpose of studying. If you wish to work a part-time job, you are required to apply for permission to engage in activities other than those permitted under the status of residence previously granted to the Regional Immigration Services Bureau.

Students are allowed to work for a maximum of 28 hours per week. However, you can work for up to eight hours a day during the long-term holidays specified by our University. If you are required to submit a proof of long-term holiday to your part-time employer, please download it from here.
If you do a part-time job without permission or exceed the specified working hours, it is considered a violation of the activities other than those permitted under the status of residence previously granted, and you will not be able to continue your studies in Japan.
Also, international students who are on a leave of absence are not allowed to obtain permission to engage in activities other than those permitted under the status of residence previously granted.
