I'm moving to japan

Can anyone who has simply moved there. For the first time tell me how they got their apartment? I have checked the websites but I need the specifics.

> How did you get the paperwork done in your country?
>Did you make a payment online or when you landed in person?
>How hard was it getting one as a foreigner.

I plan on moving there and just using the 3 months rule. Leave for a bit then come back for another 3 months rinse and repeat.

I mainly need to know the specifics of getting an apartment as I'm new to all this.

P.S I will be quiting my job and before I do tell me any medical exams I should get before I lose it. My job gives me really good health benefits so I want to take advantage of them while. I still can.

        Japs are notorious for randomly banning foreigners for bullshit reasons.

    >> How did you get the paperwork done in your country?
    You get all the paperwork you need once you get your proper visa from the immigration services, bank account after, stamp, file for insurance done.
    >Did you make a payment online or when you landed in person?
    Depends on the company
    >How hard was it getting one as a foreigner.
    Not at all who is your sponsor generally people will get their work or college to help them out with this proc-
    >I plan on moving there and just using the 3 months rule. Leave for a bit then come back for another 3 months rinse and repeat.

      Im still debating if I'll sign up for Japanese language school but as it stands now I'm just using my tourist visa so there won't be any immigration services involved. You can still get short term apartments without the paperwork from immigration services

      >Depends on the company

      You mean who ever owns the apartments? That means some probably want it beforehand which is fine I would rather just give it to them once I'm there instead of before hand to dodge any complications

      >Not at all who is your sponsor generally people will get their work or college to help them out with this proc-

      No sponsor

            Because the border officials will not be satisfied with your itinerary.

              This isnt a thing. There are no rules that say you can't come and go as long as you don't stay past your 3 months limit

                Tell that to the border official, I'm sure he will understand.

                As long as a person doesn't exceed 180 days in a calendar year, doesn't clearly do visa runs, doesn't exceed their visa stay, and isn't working, they don't give a frick.

                There will definitely come a time, or multiple, where they interrogate a person doing 3 months on 3 months off, to see if they are working. Probably would ask to see their bank account, phone, etc. As long as you are not doing the aforementioned and willing to let them invade your privacy to prove it, they couldn't give two shits if someone wants to pay out the ass to stay in Japan for 6 months out of the year on a couple of tourist visas.

                I'm sure they all knew that but there is something about ppl specifically the cringe millennial redditer types that when you bring up Japan they automatically try to gate keep for some reason? Weird. But thank you for explaining it to them

                You are a moronic delusional entitled manchild with a persecution complex. You want to have a long term residence using a short term visa. This isn't about Japan, or whatever bullshit reddit boogeyman you invented.

                This thread is moronic. You are moronic. You're not moving to Japan. You're trying to commit immigration fraud.

      Have you been to the Japanese consulate in your country to discuss long-term visa options? If you are serious about living in Japan on any permanent basis, they would be more helpful than us, and if you haven't visited then it implies that you're being very unserious about this whole thing since visas are the biggest hurdle. You can't just up and move to another country.
      As for medical checkups, if you're under 30 just get a standard checkup from your primary care physician and your dentist. Get bloodwork done for your PCP to check for any potential concerns, and do both at least a few months ahead of your scheduled move so that you can plan for any follow-up appointments if anything is found.

        Thank you anon finally a helpful answer. I have considered getting a visa but all the ones they have available ( except Japanese language school) are not just unappealing but I know I wouldn't be motivated and just end up failing. I want to go to Japan and experience it to the fullest. As well as learn the language ( I know enough to just get by at very casual talk )

        Money is not a big problem which is why I have no problem coming and going every 3 months for a couple of years.

    I hope you enjoy paying 10x as a foreigner or living with five or so people because as a tourist you're not getting a decent apartment, specially because after 180 days in Japan you're actually supposed to start paying taxes.

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      This is misleading.

      I won't be paying 10x more for rent no one in the history of ever as a foreigner has paid more then the regular price for an apartment. Short term apartments simple make you pay more upfront but after that it's back to the usual 50k - 100k rent

      Go ahead. Tell the class what " taxes " you have to pay after 180 days

    Even when the entry permits are only 3 months maximum it doesn't mean that you can go like a week to Korea then come back to japan all year long, you have a maximum of 180 days per year if you are not on a Visa, and it's not calendar year, it's a year from first entry. Aparment wise you aren't going to find many, if at all, real state agents that will get you an apartment as a tourist, even with the proper documentation it's difficult so you can stay at airbnb or maybe a sharehouse or hotels or some shit. But tbh you plan seems set to fail from the start

    Hi buddy, all jokes aside, you won't get an apartment as a three months tourist.

    I got mine cause I got a three years work visa, know Japanese and have a job without a fixed term. And not being from SEA or other less desirable country.

    Btw I mean apartment as really an apartment, one that I found through a room search, one registered at the local town office etc. You might get something for three months, in the same way you could get hotel for three months.

    So do you really think inmigration will keep renovating your tourist visa forever just because you take a one day trip to China every three months? How old are you op, 18? You're not the first one to come up with this idea you know

    How difficult is it to get a visa and work as a lineman in Japan? My brother is looking to become a lineman, and he's pretty damn sure he wants to move to Japan. Electricity works the same no matter where you are, but I'm sure that they have systems that run at slightly different voltages from America.
    I personally am also interested in 5 years or so, but I think it'll be somewhat easier for me as I'm a controls tech slowly transitioning to engineer status. Everyone always needs more engineers.
