Business manager visa is a very challenging visa.
There are several cases permitted on the first attempt.
Many applicants worry that they may not get the visa if they get non-recognition once, but there must be reasons getting non-recognition.
It is most important to know the reasons of non-recognition.
Knowing reasons and reapply with appropriate documents increase the possibility of obtaining the visa.
There are two requirements of the visa. Applicants need to meet one of them.
・Over five million JPY subscription
・More than two employees living in Japan
If applicants do not meet the requirement, they will be non-recognition.
Stability and sustainability of the business is most important to obtain business manager visa.
The key points are business plan and statement of reasons.
It is necessary to have plan in detail; for example, income and expenses are achievable for a company.
When some supplementary explanations are needed in the business plan, applicants have to prepare a statement of reasons to explain specifically. For example, relationship with cooperators who are difficult to explain, or background of the administrator.
If business plan and state of reasons are not well prepared, the business will be judged that not stable and not sustainable, therefore the possibility of getting permission will be very low.
