I always dreamed about living in Japan. And after reading about the point-based system for Highly-Skilled Foreign Professionals, may be I can now try and get a job in Japan?
I am a software engineer, and I will get 80+ points when calculating the points based on my current non-Japan working experience and salaries.
Unfortunately, I am still studying Japanese and I am in the middle of my N4 studying.
I would like to ask for everyone’s advice on what should I do to land a job in Japan, and , ideally, get permanently residency as soon as possible?
Do I need to first get a job offer from a Japan company before I can apply for the Highly-Skilled Foreign Professionals visa?
And what is the impact of the current pandemic on these procedures?
