I’m a french software dev based in London with 5 years of experience (Mainly Ruby / Rails but also a bit of Front-end React/Vue).
I monitored the job market and found that some companies are looking for Ruby devs in Tokyo. I plan to apply probably in the next 6 months and I would be ready (obviously) to travel to Japan for interviews.
I used this website http://www.immi-moj.go.jp/newimmiact_3/en/ (Points-based Preferential Immigration Treatment for Highly-Skilled Foreign Professionals) and I think I match the standard requirements(70 points) for a working visa.
I have only 1 concern :
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Science and a Master’s Degree in Ergonomics and Human Factors. But from what I can read, only a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science is viable to apply for a working visa? And unfortunately I have only 5 years of experience (not 10).
I’m asking it because I have heard Japan government will eases immigration rules. Could you please enlighten me about this ?
Thank you everyone, have a lovely weekend
