Advice and information services for Nikkeis

July 1991 saw the launch of SAITRAN (Servicio de Asesoría e Información para Trabajadores Nikkeis), an employment advisory service set up in response to the burgeoning growth of Nikkei workers in Japan. The service provides advice and information on a range of topics encompassing living in Japan, finding employment, visa requirements, education (including schooling and language study), insurance and pension systems, taxation, and health services. The information is sourced from Nikkei communities in Japan as well as employers of Nikkei workers and community support groups.
