How to Set Up Your Business in Japan 2022

Are you planning to expand your business in Japan?

For a long time, the Business Manager Visa was the only option available for foreign businesses to start a business in Japan. The requirements for obtaining this visa are difficult to meet, especially for businesses who haven’t set up any physical presence in Japan.

However, to provide more opportunities for foreign entrepreneurs to start their business in Japan, a new visa system called a Startup VISA was introduced in 2019.

In this white paper, we discuss all the necessary steps involved in setting up a business in Japan. We cover the application procedure and the requirements for the Startup Visa and Business Manager Visa, how to set up a corporate bank account, social and labor insurance, available business support in Kobe and so much more.

This 100+ page white paper is your quintessential guide to entering the Japanese market with ease.
