Going to work in Tokyo for 6 month, but i got some question - 07-25-2010, 06:18 PM

Hi guys,

I am going to Tokyo for work for 6 month. I use traveller VISA to enter Japan. Can I apply bank account and mobile? I will register a company in Japan when I arrive Japan, does that help?

thanks for advise.

1) How can you stay for 6 months on a "traveler visa"? (Should be a 90 day limit.)

2) Who will hire you without a working visa?

3) What do you mean you will register a company?

4) How will you get a bank account without a permanent address?

5) How will you get a cell phone without a permanent address?

You cannot work in a country on a travel visa.

Oh course he can do all this stuff guys. It will all just be illegal and he will probably get himself deported.
