Should a candidate be offered a position in the JET program, are they allowed to bring their children to Japan as well?

Hi Maria, and thanks for the question!

Some JETs who apply do have dependents (either a spouse or children), and they are very welcome on the JET Program. With this, you indicate in your initial application that you'll be bringing dependents and then should you be accepted your local Japanese consulate or embassy would help to arrange visas for them.

While traveling with dependents has more factors to consider(like schooling, day care, etc.), it's certainly possible!

Sincerely, San Francisco JET Program Coordinator.
