JapanVisaFilter - My visa period is almost up, and my contract is extended but not for a whole year. What's up?
I'm in Japan on a one-year engineering visa. My company has extended my contract, but only for six months (all the paperwork for that is done). I'm going in to renew my visa tomorrow, but it expires at the end of this week (I got careless and forgot about the renewal date).
1. Can I get my visa extended?
2. Is my visa automatically extended while they process my application? If not, what can I do?
This is my first visa renewal in Japan and I'm an American citizen, if that makes a difference.
