The Kobe Startup Visa allows foreign nationals seeking the residence status of “Management / Manager” to enter and stay for up to one year in preparation for starting a business. At the time of application, an office isn't required to establish resident status, nor do you have to secure capital or hire staff at this point. Kobe City will certify your application, and a “Specific Activity (Start-up)” residence status will be issued.
