Hi,
Can a U.K. national with a Veterinary degree (U.K. ) and a USA Veterinary qualification work in Okinawa?
Is fluent Japanese a must to work there?

Appreciate if anyone can advice.

Thanks!

As far as I'm aware, they do have English speaking staff and Animal Hospital 22 is actually apart of a group of five different clinics and a dog park for rehabilitation (and recreation) around Okinawa to include locations in Tomigusuku, Haebaru, Nishihara, Nago, and Chatan.

That being said, work in Japan is very difficult without a work visa, usually sponsored by the company you wish to work for which can then ultimately turn into permanent residency.

Though, the immigration policies have loosened a bit where skilled workers are able to come in under a point system. I'm unsure if veterinary work qualifies for this, so it's something that you might want to contact your UK/Japan Embassy about.

If all else fails, you can check job listings on their employment page or, perhaps, even give them a call to see if Japanese is a killer for sponsorship.

The next step would then to seek vets out on island that would sponsor and hire as eventually, you will pick up Japanese.
