For a management and administration visa, it is necessary to have a contract for an office.

Below are some points to consider when contracting an office:

1. The lease agreement must be made in the name of the corporation.

2. The lease agreement must be for business purposes.

3. The office must have a physical presence.

4. The office must exist as an independent establishment.


1. The lease agreement must be made in the name of the corporation.

The contract must be made in the name of the corporation, not in the name of the representative.


2. The lease agreement must be for business purposes.

In Japan, lease agreements for buildings are categorized as either "residential" or "business" purposes. Make sure that the contract is specifically for "business" purposes.


3. The office must have a physical presence.

It is important that the office has the necessary physical elements such as desks, telephones, storage shelves, and a nameplate.


4. The office must exist as an independent establishment.

In many cases, it is not allowed if all areas of the office are shared with other companies.
