Japan can provide a Short Term Stay Visa, which allows foreign nationals to enter the country for tourism, commerce, business, training, conferences, visiting relatives, etc. The Short Term Stay Visa will allow you to stay in the country for up to 90 days. If your internship duration is longer than 3 months, you must leave the country and upon return you will receive an additional 90 days.

For certain foreign nationals, the Short Term Stay Visa will allow you to stay up to 6 months in the country. Within the initial 90 days upon arrival in the country, you can apply for a 90 day extension at the nearest immigration office. You are eligible to stay up to 6 months if you are a national of the following countries: Austria, Germany, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Mexico, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Requirements For The Program

AIP is able to arrange your ideal internship position independently from your university degree or prior working experience.
The basic criteria to be accepted into our program can be described as follows:

  • Good command in both, written and spoken English.
  • Open-mindedness and motivation to pursue an international career.
  • Convincing application documents.

Which package is the most suitable for me?

This mostly depends on your character and personal preference.

The placement package is most suitable for rather independent candidates who have already been in their destination of choice.

The standard package on the other hand is our carefree package which also provides you with accommodation and various other services besides the internship placement, as airport transfer, trips, language courses, networking events and more.

If you want to fully immerse into culture and country, the signature package will be most suitable for you since it also includes weekend trips across the country and cultural events such as cooking classes.

Generally, we recommend our candidates the standard package as it provides a comprehensive amount of services at a very competitive price. This will allow you to focus on your internship while enjoying a safe and carefree experience.

Please note that some packages are only available in specific destinations.

Will The Internship Be Paid?

This will mostly depend on your previous experience, the position you are looking for and the destination. In many Asian countries, it is for example not allowed to pay a salary to the interns due to the visa regulations. As such, the Asia Internship Program will not be able to guarantee you a paid internship. However, you can be assured of our highest consideration to ensure at least some form of compensation for you.


How Long Does The Process Take?

Arranging your ideal internship position and all necessary visa documents will take up to 8 weeks. You can have a look at how it works to gain an overview of the processes involved. Should you be in a hurry to start your internship, AIPX might be a suitable option for you. Via AIPX, we will have an interview confirmed for you within 9 working days only.


Is There A Refund Policy?

Yes. AIP guarantees to arrange your ideal internship position in Asia for you. As such, we will refund your deposit completely should we fail to arrange your internship according to your requirements. It will also be refunded should we fail to arrange your internship in the appropriate timeline.

For further information, please refer to our Terms & Conditions.

I am a third year student from Germany and I am very interested in Japanese culture but I found it to be quite difficult to find an internship in Japan myself. That is why I contacted AIP to help me out. I just returned from my six-month internship in Japan and I miss it already, haha! I made a lot of new friends and I was able to experience a totally different culture and pick up some of the Japanese language. The company that I worked for was exactly what I was looking for and what AIP told me it would be. When it comes to work Japan is very hands on. I had a lot of fun and I gained a lot of valuable working experience. Thanks, Ken and the rest of the AIP team!
