I was very frustrated at one point so I called everyone to see if someone could give me an answer. The senior official at the CLA told explicitly that I could work at a kindergarten if I have a JFRV.
The police say that because a kindergarten teacher needs to be licensed that unless the foreigner is licensed, he or she is working illegally. In response to this, the CLA official told me that if I have any problems just have the police call her.
So, what’s the final word. Well, a owner of a well-known bushiban said this, “The teacher would not be fined nor deported, but the school would be fined for hiring an unlicensed teacher.”
Has anyone heard something else from the CLA?
