  • It is now 2014, can you fill us in on what the result was of this situation?
  • What to do if you just overlooked the expiry date of your visa?
    We quite often have such foreign clients, who are quite upset having found that they were already overstaying due to a simple mistake overlooked the expiry date of visa. We do understand that you did overstay just by a mistake but with regret you are already under illegal status.
    Nevertheless, unless it had already been longer than 1 month since the expiry date, don’t worry that seriously. You should appear at the immigration bureau within 1 month, and then you shall be forgiven and able to renew your visa with the procedures much simpler than the above.
    However, if it had been longer than 1 month you would have to go through the legal procedures as descried as above in principle. In that case you are recommended to prepare those documentations well explaining why you made such a mistake in a lawful manner when appearing at the immigration bureau already. Otherwise, you would have to go there again and again in order to regain a visa.
    Also, if you were found by police officers as overstay and arrested having failed in appearing at the immigration bureau on your own, it could no longer be deemed as a simple mistake but found as more serious suspicion of illegal stay.
    Anyhow, the later you found such a mistake, the worse your position on illegality would become…
