Our Business Policy

We comprehensively sort out the fact situations of any applicant on a case-by-case basis, carefully considering any relevant factors such as the applicant’s residence records, current immigration control laws and regulations, and related court and administrative precedents to determine the scope of the materials for proof that may be required.
We draft a "statement of reasons for application" based on various factors and carefully prepare the necessary application materials to clearly demonstrate they meet the standards, requirements, and criteria outlined in the applicable laws and regulations to substantially accommodate the "discretion" exercised by the Immigration Bureau.
We strive to maintain professionalism and excellence and are constantly improving our services by attending lectures or seeking clarification and explanations from former officials who held key positions at the Immigration Bureau (such as the director in charge of all lawsuits or the director in charge of applications for refugee status).
Thankfully, we have a high reputation among the clients we have known through various cases we have handled until now. In addition, on referrals from such clients, we have consulted and served a lot of foreign nationals, Japanese nationals overseas, companies, associations, attorneys-at-law, tax accountants and labor and social security attorneys, etc.
