Part time job

Hi everyone,

I'm 30 years old man,i just moved to Okinawa (Naha city)one week ago.i'm joining a school to study Japanese language and culture.In the meantime,i want to find a part time job to kinda support myself while studying.i speak fluent English,French,and Arabic,but my Japanese is still weak.

What is kind of part time jobs available in Okinawa?How is the best way to find it ?

P.S: I have a long experience in the tourism industry!

Any kind of help or tips would be highly appreciated!!

depending on what type of visa you have, you may or may not be able to get paid. you can get an internship to practice language skills. your school might have resources to help set you up.

If you have a status of residency "College Student" (language school students are considered College Students for immigration purposes) then you first need to apply for "Permission to Engage in Activity other than that Permitted under the Status of Residence Previously Granted " (yes it's that long) before you can start working part-time as a student.

This form can be applied through the immigration office, but your school should help you out with this.
