Question: If someone has already obtained the Business Manager Visa, what do they have to do in order to renew that visa status?
Answer: They must keep meeting the conditions of landing when they apply for an extension of period of stay. The Immigration Bureau will carefully examine the continuity and stability of their business by checking all required documents such as financial statements and the certificate of tax payment. They also will use information shared from the Taxation Office, so it is critical that accounting be properly done according to the law.
In general, this type of examination would only be carried out when there is an application for a change of visa or extension of period of stay. However, if it became known that applicants have not continued to engage in the activities corresponding to their status such as Business Manager for a period of 3 months or more, their visa might be revoked according to the Immigration Control Act.
