Technical Intern Training System

The Technical Intern Training System is a system wherein foreign technical intern trainees acquire and master skills that are difficult to acquire in the country of origin. The trainees and the Japanese companies and sole proprietors establish an employee-employer relationship.

The maximum period is 5 years, and the acquisition of skills, etc. is based on the technical intern training plan.

Specific Skill System

The revised Immigration Control Act came into effect on April 1, 2019, and a new status of residence, “Specific Skills,” has been established. There are two types of “Specific Skills.”

“Specific Skill No. 1” can work for 5 years only in the field by passing the “Technical Examination” and the “Japanese Language Examination” imposed for each field of 14 industries, or by successfully completing Technical Intern Training No. 2. It is a qualification to become.

Specific Skill No. 2 is a qualification that can be transferred to those who have completed “Specific Skill No. 1.”

Currently, only the two fields of “construction” and “shipbuilding / ship industry” can be transferred from No. 1.

Because the renewal of “Specific Skill No. 2” is indefinite, a foreign immigrant will be able to stay in Japan as there is a place of employment.
