Dangerousness of self-interpretation
I got a question like this.
“I live in ×××.
I have spouse visa until 2019-3-4.
Now I divorced.
I should change my visa to business visa.”
“When did you divorce?” I asked to him.
He said, “Two years ago”.
This is the end of the story.
He did not report the fact of divorce to Immigration office when he divorced.
Under current rule, even if his visa is valid until 2019, once he divorces, his visa will be canceled within 6 months.
His mistake comes from his self-interpretation that even if he divorced, he can continue staying here until expiration.
He can’t change his status to business visa, because he is overstay now.
He should have changed his visa within 6 months after he divorced 2 years ago.
There’s nothing that can be done about it now.
Please be careful about it.
Sometimes, when I wait for my turn at Immigration Office, I see a person who cannot receive new residence card because of not bringing the passport.
Once you get it, will you be safe permanently?
This explanation is bit abstract.
For example, suppose if you are a college graduate.
You are applying for working visa now.
However, immigration office asks you about overtime illegal working when you were a student.
In this case, even if there is no problem about working visa, you will have a problem because of your past activity, and in the end, your application might be in fail.
This is what I wanted to say in this video.
Even if they accept your application for Permanent resident visa,it does not mean that they will grant you the extension to your current visa automatically.
When applying for business manager visa, you need to submit “business plan” to Immigration Office.
This plan will be an important document explaining the stability and continuity of your business.
When it comes to Naturalization and Permanent Resident visa,to join pension program is essential.
Today, I’d like to talk about “Certificate of Authorized Employment”.
In this case, if you want to continue staying here, what should we do?
Cases of those who were granted or not granted permission to change status of residence from “spouse or child of Japanese national” or “spouse or child of permanent resident” to “long-term resident”
When you get the notification of approval for renewal of your visa, you need to prepare revenue-stamp of 4,000 yen.
