All foreign persons are required to obtain the appropriate visa and immigration status in order to work in Japan. Therefore, when a company wishes to hire a foreign person to work in Japan, it is vital to the company that this person is able to smoothly apply for and obtain the necessary visa and immigration status. Our qualified immigration specialists (gyosei shoshi) regularly prepare visa application documents and file such documents with the Immigration Bureau to enable foreign persons to enter and reside in Japan.
We also provide advice and support on various issues concerning the Immigration Control Act. As the relevant laws are frequently amended and many cases are determined at the discretion of the Immigration Bureau, we have assisted our clients in seeking the most effective solution for difficult matters, for example by holding preliminary consultation with the Ministry of Justice or the Immigration Bureau.
