Moving to Japan can be an incredible intercultural experience. For most pilots, relocating to the Land of the Rising Sun will probably mean working in highly populated and urbanised areas like Tokyo, Yokohama, the Kansai region or the Nagoya region.
Pilots need to acquire long-term or working visas to undergo gainful employment in Japan. In 2012, Japan introduced a points-based immigration system to give skilled professionals priority when moving to Japan. Pilots working in specialised and technical aviation fields can apply under this system. If successful, the pilot will be granted certain benefits, including prioritised processing of their application, leniency of any permanent residency applications, and/or permission for a spouse to work, regardless of whether the spouse is a highly skilled professional themselves.
