“Highly Skilled Professional” is a new system established to promote the acceptance of excellent foreigners. With the advanced human resource point system, points are set for items such as “educational background”, “employment history”, and “annual income”, and a total of over 70 foreigners can be acquired. “Highly Skilled Professional” is divided into No. 1 and No. 2, and “Highly Skilled Professional No. 2” can only be changed from No. 1, so all pass “Highly Skilled Professional No. 1”. Acquiring “Highly Skilled Professional” has several advantages, unlike regular work visas, such as lowering permanent resident requirements under certain conditions and bringing parents.

Period of stay : (No. 1)→ 5 years or less, (No. 2)→ No time limit
