I am pretty sure that my case is a simple one, but I have searched through the forum and other websites, and I have mixed answers. Thus, I created a new thread and would be glad if anyone can tell me what my options are.
My situation is as follow: I am already in Japan with a landing permit to stay for 90 days only. I don't have a work visa. I had a job offered as a Mechanical Engineer in Nagoya, and my company was able to obtained my CoE. They gave me the CoE note, but I don't think I am allowed to be working for them yet. I am a U.S citizen; not sure if it matters.
So, I would like to know what I need to do to be working legally.
Some people say I need to get out of Japan to obtain work visa, then come back. Some people say I can get my work visa inside Japan by going to the Immigration Bureau in Nagoya. And some say that I don't even need my work visa, but I still need to update my residency status. I don't really know which one of these options is correct.
If you have any info or have been in the same situation, please help me out.
