Application Period Extended for Visa Renewal


Immigration is taking steps to reduce congestion at counters by extending the period for the lodgment of renewal/change applications. If your status of residence (visa) is up for renewal or change in June or July, the deadline will be extended by 3 months from the date of expiry as marked on your Zairyu Card. This excludes holders of “Designated Activities: Departure Preparation Period” statuses of residence. You will not be able to leave Japan and reenter by special reentry permit once the date of expiry on your Zairyu Card has passed.

Limit on Number of People in Building

You may be required to wait outside because of these limits on the number of people inside.

Job Matching Service for Foreigners

The immigration office is also offering a job matching service for foreigners with statuses of residence including Specified Skilled Worker, Engineer, Specialist in Humanities, International Services, etc., whose employment has been terminated due to COVID-19.
