Point 04

Customer Case Studies

Case 1: transportation and communication industry, Number of foreign members 100~500


They had hired another immigration law firm, but they were slow to respond and the work did not proceed smoothly. In addition, they did not share the progress of their visa application case, so they could not share information in a timely manner.


In order for the HR staff to understand the progress of the visa application, the progress is shared with the HR staff at each milestone such as when the work is started, when the application is submitted, and when the application is approved. In addition, information is also shared when there are circumstances that delay the schedule, such as no reply from the foreign employee, late submission of documents, or slower than usual examination by the Immigration Bureau. By sharing information in a timely manner, we support HR staff in smoothly managing the entry schedule.

In addition to full-time staff members, backup staff are assigned to build an operation to respond in the absence of full-time staff member. This prevents delays in operations and omissions in information sharing due to the absence of the person in charge, and optimizes the workflow of the entire project.

Case 2: Financial and insurance industry, Number of foreign members ~50


There is a risk of overlooking the expiry date for foreign employees. In addition, there were problems such as missing necessary procedures due to lack of knowledge about the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act and residence of foreign nationals.


We provide visa consulting and advice in accordance with the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act when special cases arise, such as when entering a company or being transferred overseas. We can provide legally appropriate acceptance and management and ensure compliance with the law. Furthermore, it is possible to manage foreign employees appropriately even if the personnel in charge of human resources does not have knowledge of laws and procedures.

Case 3: University


There were frequent visa procedures that were difficult for them to handle by themselves. They have not been able to implement proper residency management or accumulate information on visas, and there is no staff with appropriate knowledge in the university.


We provided visa consulting services to the department in charge within the university, and presented a plan for dealing with the complex issues that arise when accepting international students, as well as during the renewal process. The staff in charge of visa operations were relieved of the anxiety that comes from not knowing how to respond, and the accuracy and efficiency of visa operations were improved.

Contract retention rate


Visa approval rate


The contract retention rate is a measure of service satisfaction, and the visa approval rate is a measure of our performance. In the past, when we have outsourced visa services to other firms, we have heard that they did not provide satisfactory services, and we have been working to improve customer satisfaction by reflecting such comments in our services.

We also maintain a high approval rate because we carefully check the requirements in advance. If you do not meet the requirements, we will help you avoid applying for a permit at the earliest possible date and provide you with a plan to obtain a permit.



We provide a wide range of services such as visa management and visa business consulting, not to mention the acquisition of work visas on behalf of foreign employees and student visas on behalf of educational institutions.
We also provide consulting services for visa management and visa services.
