Working Visa Question

I found a company willing to sponsor my working visa. The status of residence that I will have falls under "Specialist in Humanities/International Services". Can I get a teaching job with this kind of visa or schools want you to have "instructor" status? From what I could see they usually ask for a "working visa" but don`t specify what kind of residence status an applicant should have.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

If the company that is willing to sponser you for a visa is offering a teaching position, and the visa type they are going to use is "Specialist in Humanities/International Services" then you should be OK. Worst case is that immigration denies the visa application and you lose nothing but some time waiting.

Sponsoring company is not offering me a teaching job. I was asking whether ekaiwas would insist that I change status of residence if I was to change my job.

You have a sponsoring company but want to search for another job right from the start? Never heard of such a case. You get the visa for the job which the sponsoring company writes down in the visa application. You can change to another companies in a similar field of business later but it's not supposed to be the intention right from the start, as far as I know.

What I am taking away from this is that a visa fraud is taking place.

They're supposed to sponsor you to work for them.

So a company is willing to hire you and sponsor your Humanities visa. Cool. Will that visa work for teaching at eikaiwa? Sure. Most newbies have that sort of visa.

Uh, a company is going to sponsor you but not hire you? That's not how it works, and Immigration won't be too happy...

I understand Ewok's confusion and feel the same way.

Can you explain a little better, tdk? Your visa sponsor is your proposed employer, right? After you get hired (and have a visa issued), do you plan to bail out of that employer or just work PT at a school?

Does it really matter what he's going to do? Probably best that we, and this board, stay as far away as possible from it.
