Who arrange for my travel to Japan?

ALTs are responsible for organizing and funding their own transportation to Japan, including airfares. We are able to recommend discount travel agents who have competitive fares from Europe, North America and Australia to Japan.


Who pays for transportation from the airport to the training center/hotel?

ALTs are responsible for our own transportation costs to the hotel where the training will be held. Once you are at the training center, all ALT work-related travel costs will be paid by the company.

Who pays for health insurance?

ALTs are required to enroll in a Health Insurance plan recognized by the Japanese government. A comprehensive, company-subsidized insurance plan is available at a cost of between 2.5 and 3% of the monthly salary.
