Default Limits of part-time work for dependants

Hello again,
Just thought I would create a new thread for my research on the limits of part-time work while in Japan for those on a dependant visa.
So far, it looks like full-time work in Japan in ESL is actually less hours than what a part-time worker could work. Potentially I could apply for full-time teaching positions and it would still be fewer hours than the upper limit. This is according to this document(http://www.ilo.org/public/english/pr...heets/wt-4.pdf, right on the first page. Japan, part-time work, maximum of 35 hours. It would seem that if someone were to hire someone like me on what they consider full-time work as an ESL teacher, it would still fall under part-time hours and thus be legal on all fronts. I'm gonna keep digging as it seems to good to be true.

(to be continued)

Not yet. My wife's cousin lives in Japan but is currently on vacation in BC. We are emailing him this week with some questions and this will be one of them The only figure I have is how much you can make in a year without it being taxed on my visa sponsor(wife): 1,000,000 yen/year. It's either stay under that or just go part-time hours with lessons to fill in the gaps and make more than enough to cover the taxes. That's what I am aiming it.

When I have a more conrete answer on the number of hours per week, I'll post it up

As for when we are leaving, no set date. We own a house here and are doing some things to it to make it more attractive to sell, once we sell it, we will probably move in with my parents to be able to hammer off the remaining debts and save up some money. It won't be for this summer that's pretty sure. Maybe we'll have to wait for January for applications for the new semester, not sure really. Last thing we want to do is set a date for ourselves. We want to do this when it's the best time possible, not the earliest time possible.
