Study in Japan

4weeks Sushi Course at Tokyo Sushi Academy

If you have a passport issued by United Arab Emirates, you will need a short-term stay visa to enter Japan. The period of stay granted at the time of the landing permission will be less than 1-month.

Many schools admit students all year round for a variety of classes(e.g. sushi, ramen, yakitori, tempura and more) ranging from a one-day private lesson to a 3-month course.  You are able to stay in Japan and participate a course at culinary schools with a short-stay visa. Course will be held in English and Japanese language is NOT required.

If you want to stay more than 1-month to study, you are required to obtain student visa or cultural activity visa.

Work in Japan

Work in Japan from South Africa

To work as a chef in Japan, there are three major requirements: the first is a visa to work legally, the second is Japanese language ability, and the third is skill as a chef. When it comes to Japanese language skills, daily conversation is the basic minimum required. this is roughly the equivalent of 300 hours of Japanese study required at least.

if you are a chef with a specialty (i.e. an Arabian chef who works at an Arabian restaurant), 10-years of specialty cooking experience may get your visa approved. In this case, there is no requirement of Japanese language fluency.
