Visa Applications

Obtaining an appropriate work or investor visa is a prerequisite for any work or investment-related activity in Japan. Kano Legal Office employs experienced Administrative Legal Specialists (Gyosei-shoshi Lawyers) to prepare and submit your visa application and supporting documents.

The legal requirements and documents for each visa can vary widely. In all cases, Japanese immigration officials have broad discretion to grant or deny a visa. While residing in Japan or through a consulate abroad, properly prepared documents ensure that immigration officials will exercise their discretion in your favor.
