The Points-based System for Highly-Skilled Foreign Professionals

The Points-based System for Highly-Skilled Foreign Professionals is a system that provides highly skilled foreign professionals with preferential immigration treatment in order to promote their entry. The activities of highly skilled foreign professionals are classified into three categories: “advanced academic research activities,” “advanced specialized/technical activities,” and “advanced business management activities.” In accordance with the characteristic features of each category, points are set for specific items. If the total points reach a certain number, preferential immigration treatment will be granted. See the Ministry of Justice website below for details.
