Dressmaking: Best way to extend a Japanese study visa
Topic: adviceS
Immigration officials search schools for illegal workers
(IHT/Asahi: April 22, 2004) Worried that foreign students are using vocational schools as a cover to work illegally in Japan, the Tokyo Regional Immigration Bureau searched 10 schools recently and found eight had problems accounting for their students. The schools were in Tokyo, Saitama and Tochigi prefectures. Many were dressmaking schools.... have seen a dramatic drop in Japanese students because there are fewer younger people due to a falling birthrate and the low popularity of sewing.
Foreign students are a godsend for school operators and possibly the future of the domestic industry for such products.
