  • Age limits for visas?

    I keep getting asked by people I used to know in Korea about age limits for Specialist in Humanities visas, Instructor visas, Cultural Visas in Japan.

    I honestly don't know, being somebody who first came to Japan in his 20s and is now in his 30s - in my case I don't have any of those visas here. Korea's easier on age, a few fu-ckwits I knew shouldn't have been working there at all teaching and were in their late 50s. But I know there are some decent older teachers in their 40s to mid 50s there, with better than usual cvs to match.

    But what's the deal about age limits to teach Engrish in Japan? I don't wanna get anybody's hopes up for nothing. Glenski, Kansai Ben, Trip Hop, anybody else?

    This question is really two things. The age limit for actually issuing a visa and the age limit that companies will hire a person.

    For the actual immigration purpose, there is no age limit for Specialist in Humanities or Instructor etc. The only limit is on the Working Holiday Visa (WHV) which is 30 years old, but that's a special case. For regular full timers on a Specialist in Humanities/Instructor there is no age limit set by the government.

    The second part is who private companies want to hire and that is dependent on the company. Some want just young faces to show off, others don't care if you are a geezer, just depends on the company in this regards.

      What themoonrules wrote... ditto.

      So, what age are we talking/worried about here? Usually, the deciding factor is whether someone has a degree or the necessary years of experience.
