It is possible to bring a foreign representative director residing abroad to Japan on a Business Manager Visa.

In this case, there are two types of cases:

Bringing a representative director who has invested 5 million yen or more from abroad.

In this case, the important points to obtain a Business Manager Visa are the source of the investment of 5 million yen or more, securing an office, and preparing a detailed business plan.

Bringing in a foreigner from overseas as a so-called "president for hire" (assuming the position of director) who does not invest more than 5 million yen.

In this case, it is assumed that the company has already been established in Japan. The important point in obtaining a Business Manager Visa is to prove that you have at least 3 years of experience as a Business Manager or Business Manager without investment. If you are applying for a Business Manager Visa without investment and you have a parent company in your home country and a solid business foundation, it will be relatively easy to prove this and you will be able to obtain a visa more easily.
