Japan Visa Application Service > Application for Extension of Period of Stay

1.What is an Extension of Period of Stay?

All foreigners in Japan other than permanent residents have an 'expiry' date on their visa. In order to continue living in Japan legally after that date you will need to apply to renew your visa.

Under the current immigration rules in Japan all residential visas are given out with periods of stay (validities) of either 1,3 or 5 years. Once your visa comes within 3 months of its end you will need to go to immigration to apply for the extension. If you fail to do so you are at risk of criminal penalties as well as deportation and being barred from entering Japan in future.

2.What are some Common Case Examples?

When I first came to Japan I was given a 3year visa but halfway through I changed jobs
I got divorced/ remarried and this is my first time renewing my visa since
I applied for the extension of my visa but it was rejected
