The Japan Immigration Services Agency has confirmed that it will introduce a six-month digital nomad visa by the end of March.
The visa will be available to applicants earning ¥10 million annually from 49 countries with valid visa waiver agreements and avoiding double taxation with Japan, reports nomadsembassy.com.
Applicants must also have private health insurance. Under these conditions, digital nomad families will be able to stay in Japan for the duration of their visit.
Nomads will not be able to renew their visas in Japan and will have to reapply after leaving the country for six months.
