  • Working Holiday Visa Question....

    Hi room,
    I have a huge inquiry regarding "working holiday visas"?

    I did some research and read that there is an existing list of countries who do require working holiday visas since they share a similarity with how employment is at Japan. Anyhow, I'm from the Philippines and I so wanted to apply at a resort job in Okinawa....working at a resort had always been a longtime dream!

    And so I ask, is there any consideration taken when the applicant and the country she originated from doesn't provide "working holiday visas"? I have had travel visas before and my sister who used to go school in Japan had a student visa, my brother working in Japan have a working visa.

    Is there such big difference with acquiring a temporary visa from a working holiday visa?

    What if i can't really get a working holiday visa? is there a substitute visa that I can get instead?

    Your wording is a bit confused. "Requires" working holiday visa? No country requires it. They may accept it or not.

    You are not eligible for a WHV here.

    If you are not from the countries on the list, you can't get the WHV.

    Yes, read the regulations.

    The temporary visa does not allow work. A WHV allows work.
    They require different paperwork, too, and they are valid for different periods of time.

    is there a substitute visa that I can get instead?
    Read the other regulations to see what type of work visa you may qualify for, and whether you are qualified.
