part time job

As the status of residence for international students is “study”, having a part time job is “activity other than permitted under the status”. Therefore, you need to apply for “the permission to engage in activity other than that permitted under the status of residence previously granted” at the Immigration Bureau before you start a part time job.

1.Working hours of a part time job

You must not work over 28 hours per week. Within 28 hours per week, you can have several part time jobs. However you need to submit “the certificate of work” for each part time job.

Auditing students with credit are permitted to work within 28 hours per week from July, 2010.
You are allowed to work 8 hours a day during the summer and the spring vacations.

2.Applying for the permission to engage in activity other than that permitted under the status of residence previously granted

International students who wish to have the permission to engage in activity other than that permitted under the status of residence previously granted, please contact the international affairs office.
