I'm asking because my work permit just expires this month and my company wants to apply a new one for me... I thought I don't need but they say I do.
No, you just need a JFRV (Joining family residence visa) to be able to work where you like.
Well, I got a more detailed answer now from my company's HR department:
In general it depends somehow on the company's revenue and size to determine how many foreigners they can hire. If you don't have a work permit based on Article 48, you might have bad luck if the quota is full already. As revenue and size constantly change, the quota will too.
The labor buro said, it's safer to get a work permit according to Article 51, and in that case I would need an Employer's based work permit. The personal work permit is only possible with an APRC.
Anyway , there is a lot of confusion about labor rights, as the government just shiftet the whole thing over to the labor department, or so...
So, still get a work permit until you have a personal one.
The only question is, if you have a work permit, does the quota regulation not apply any more??? And with a personal work permit?
Can anyone clearify this?
