After confirming the payment, we start collecting needed materials and making documents. When our client pay "fee in advance" in the consultation meeting, immediately we issue the receipt and start collecting needed materials and making documents.

4. Confirmation Meeting

Before submitting the application and related document, our client and we have a confirmation meeting in our office. Our client makes final check to all the material and sign on it if everything is correct.

5-1. Naturalization or Special Permission for Residence

Our office submits the application to the Immigration Bureau for our client. Therefore, in principle, our client does not need to go to the Bureau. It usually takes one to three months for the Bureau to investigate. The Bureau will inform our office on the result.

In our office, we will give you the passport on which our office gets the stamp for the permission, or the Certificate of Eligibility. Please pay the rest of the fee before or on the day of the meeting in our office.

5-2. Other cases

In case of Naturalization or to get Japanese nationality, our client are supposed to go to the Legal Affairs Bureau by themselves. In case of Special Permission for Residence, our client are supposed to go to the Immigration Bureau by themselves. Therefore, we can not submit the application for our client. Instead, we will go with our client to those offices.

The result of Naturalization application or Special Permission for Residence will be noticed directly to our client. It usually takes 6 months to over 1 year. During that period, please do not hesitate to consult with us for any concerns or questions. If there is additional document required, we will help with it without any charge. However, the cost for the third party should be paid by our client.

And please pay the rest of the fee before or on the day of the confirmation meeting. In case of Naturalization application or Special Permission for Residence, the result will be noticed directly to our client. Our office can not know the result. Therefore, our client is required to pay the rest of the fee before or on the confirmation meeting.

6. In case of the failure to get the permission

In case of the failure to get the permission, our office will confirm the reason for the Bureau's rejection. And our office will offer the re-application for free of charge. However, the cost for the third party should be paid by our client.

And if it fails due to the false application of our client, our office has to reject our service any longer. Please understand this point.
