There are certain requisites that will need to be met. Firstly, you will need to have some Japanese ability. It is thought that Japanese Language Proficiency Test level N4 is the minimum standard,
though this may be higher depending on which industry you enter. It stands to reason that a customer- facing role will require a higher command of the local language than factory work would.
Secondly, you will be required to have a degree of skill in the industry you have applied for.


Accordingly, you must pass the required skill evolution exam.
If you are currently in Japan on the Technical Intern Training visa and your internship is completed, then it may also be possible to upgrade to the Specified Skills 1 visa on the same job category
without any above requirements.
