Hello. I'm Nakajima, in charge of Applying for Relationship-based VISA.
While waiting for the result of your application, you may get an envelope instead of a postcard… it could be a notice of request for submission of materials!
You will be surprised since you have filed all the necessary documents. This request is quite important, please take care of it with enough attention.
These are the cases where the request is issued;
① Simply when there are missing documents
② When the Immigration Bureau wants to know the detail
The notice does not show the reason why it is issued. However, if you fail to deal with it appropriately, your application will be denied. Please be very careful.
For example, if you are applying for the spousal visa, please prepare the documents which prove that your marriage is genuine. If you file the spousal visa by yourself, it is highly recommended that you should ask a specialist for advice to deal with the notice.
Also, never fail to submit the documents by the deadline.
You can mail it to the Immigration Bureau, or you can go there directly to submit. If you use the mail, please send it in a traceable way.
Since the inspection will be suspended until the documents are submitted, please note that the inspection will take longer than usual.
Again, this request is quite important.
Please leave it to us if you feel anxious.
Thank you for reading.
