Summary: Indian IT professionals can leverage their qualifications to facilitate the acquisition of work visas in Japan, a move that underscores the mutual recognition of IT skills between the two nations. Recognized Indian IT qualifications, including certain DOEACC credentials, are deemed equivalent to university degrees by the Japanese government, simplifying the visa application process.
Traditionally, IT roles in Japan require a relevant degree or over ten years of experience. However, the Information-Processing Promotion Organization (IPA) in Japan has established agreements with IT examination bodies across 12 Asian countries, including India’s National Institute of Electronics and Information Technology (NIELIT), to recognize and streamline the validation of IT qualifications.
Indian professionals holding these recognized qualifications can apply for the Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services visa, bypassing the usual stringent academic and experience prerequisites. However, they must adhere to other standard visa requirements, including securing a relevant job offer in Japan, earning a competitive salary, and maintaining a clean legal record.
This policy not only facilitates the mobility of skilled Indian IT talent to Japan but also addresses the talent shortage in Japan’s burgeoning IT sector, creating a win-win scenario that enhances IT employment opportunities across borders. The integration of Indian IT qualifications into Japan’s employment landscape represents a significant stride in international labor relations, benefiting individuals and industries alike.
