about japanese bank account
I think there are many foreigners who have trouble managing their japanese bank accounts.
Only two bank accounts are valid for Uber Japan,MUFG and SMBC.
Now one of the easiest banks for foreigners to get a bank account with is JP POST Bank.However They won’t support payments to them.
In the experience of those who opened a Japanese bank account, SMBC was kinder than MUFG for foreigners.
Basically, Japanese people have very very very poor English.You will have a hard time, but please be patient.
Transfer are made every weekend (Monday at 4 pm).There is no transfer fee.
Partner Center (suspended)
By the way, before Corona, it was standard to visit to the nearest partner center.
- Watch the instructional video
- Support bank account registration
- Taking a profile picture
- Introduction delivery method and app
- Get delivery bag
However, the center was suspended since spring of 2020 and these operations are gone.Opening is undecided.
These operations are now finished online.So registration has become a lot easier, but support and troubleshooting has become a bit more difficult.
*In Osaka and Tokyo, Uber opens centers irregularly for foreigners to accept registrations.I saw it open in February 2021.
