Hello. I'm Nakajima, in charge of Applying for Relationship-based VISA.
When you receive the disapproval notice from the Immigration Bureau, you will find that there’s just an ambiguous reason.
You must want to clarify the reason, and there is a chance to hear the detail.
I will explain what you should do.
Here are the fundamental knowledges when you do it:
・ The officer who explain the reason is not the one who inspected
・ It may make the situation worse when you argue
・ The Immigration Bureau does not have an accountability
・ Nothing is going to change the result of disapproval
The officer explains the reason based on the material which is made by the other officer (inspector), which means that all you can do is to ask and hear the reason.
So, what are the best things to do?
These are the answers:
・ Listen carefully for the reason for the disapproval
There may be two or more reasons. Make every reason be disclosed.
・ Ask for the detail until you can understand
The officer may use the technical terms. If you cannot understand, ask the officer
until you can understand. You cannot ask the reason later.
・ Ask the officer for the advice if there’s another chance and how should you do for
the next application
We sometimes hear the yelling and quarreling with the officer. We can understand it because this is extremely important for the applicants since this result surely changes their lives. However, this does not make any difference. What you should do is to think what you can do in the future.
The disapproval may be caused by the dissatisfaction of the requirements or just the misunderstandings caused by the insufficient explanation. Please make use of this occasion by clarifying the reason thoroughly and find the best solution.
Once you received the disapproval, you must be very careful when doing the reapplication.
If there’s a contradiction between the first application and the second one, this could be the reason for another disapproval. That is why it is extremely important for you to comprehend the disapproval reason in one chance.
Needless to say, the most important thing is not to be disapproved.
That is why we are here for you. Please contact us, especially if you want to obtain
the relationship-based visa in Japan.
Thank you for reading.
