About a part time job

The “Certificate of Eligibility” for the status of “College student” is granted to foreign nationals who stay in Japan in order to study at a university or an educational institute. If the students engage in part time work, they need to obtain a work permit issued by the Immigration Bureau. (Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act: Article 19). If a student is found to be working without a work permit, or hours beyond the limit set, they might be subjected to penalty, or worse, deported.

About living costs

The average living cost in Osaka is around at least JPY100,000 per month including rent. Make sure to consider this when you budget for living costs in Japan.

In addition, if the recipient has paid medical costs to a medical institution exceeding the limit of co-payment (JPY35,400 per month in Suita City), for example, due to hospitalization or an operation, the cost above the limit of JPY35,400 will be refunded through the “High-Cost Medical Care Benefit System”
