Do you know UberEATS?
You might have seen the bicycle carrying a green box on the street. I haven’t used the service yet, but it’s a convenient food delivery service.
I heard there are businessmen working as a part time for their second jobs and for work out.
Recently, both the numbers of accepting the second job or part time job among Japanese companies as well as beginning food delivery in free time are growing.
It’s, indeed, a healthy and good delivery part time job by bicycle as well as earnings.
Well, can foreign residents in Japan delivery service?
Can they do UberEATS’ as a part time job?
Let’s take a look at the list of occupation and residential status for foreign residents in Japan
Foreign workers（Residential Status：Engineer, Specialist in Humanities, International Services）
“Permission to Engage in Activity other than that Permitted under the Status of Residence Previously Granted”.
International student（Residential Status：Student）
Part time job is available if you have a “Permission to Engage in Activity other than that Permitted under the Status of Residence Previously Granted”.
Technical intern（Residential Status：Technical intern）
People whose residential status are “Spouse or Child of Japanese National”, “Resident”, or “Permanent resident” are able to work freely.
You can see a person except “Technical intern” status is able to do a part time job, however those who are foreign workers or international students need to have a “Permission to Engage in Activity other than that Permitted under the Status of Residence Previously Granted”. Especially, once international students obtaining the permission are able to work within 28hours per week.
The job based on the permission does not include entertainment and amusement business, but convenience store, bar, and other jobs are accepted.
Foreign workers will be permitted after reviewing the name of the part time job’s company with its address and job description for applying the permission.
Foreign workers can’t choose any part time job like international students do. Moreover, the jobs recognized as unskilled labor by the Immigration Services Agency are not accepted.
Hence, what you first need to do is find a part time job, then apply for the permission. Once being permitted, you can start your part time job.
So, let’s see whether it’s possible to work for UberEATS as a part time job.
Foreign workers are not allowed to work for UberEATS as their part time job
This is because food delivery would be considered as an unskilled labor, thus the permission will probably not be approved.
Well, how about international students.
As a result, it could be fine but better not to do it.
Although international students are permitted to work for 28 hours per week, the salary is paid based on a number of delivery times not working hours.
Thus, the students would be suspected overwork by the Immigration Services Agency
“Spouse or Child of Japanese National”, “Resident”, or “Permanent resident” are able to work for UberEATS as a part time job.
It depends on their residential status whether foreign national can work for UberEATS as a part time job or not.
Overall, it is better to make sure whether the current residential status is fine to do a part time job.
