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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many man-hours can be saved if I ask you to handle visa applications for my employees?

We can reduce the man-hours by about 90%. After the request is made, we can directly contact the target employee to prepare the application documents and receive the visa, so there is almost nothing for the person in charge to do. Progress of the application can be shared as needed, and the status of the application can be monitored smoothly.

Is the contract spot or ongoing?

Both are possible. Companies that hire/invite foreign nationals often request us only when necessary, while companies that hire/invite a large number of foreign nationals every year contract us on an advisory basis to provide various consulting services related to Japanese visas in addition to application services.

I'm hiring a foreigner for the first time. Can you give me some advice before and after accepting them?

Yes, of course. If you are hiring a foreigner for the first time, we understand that you may have many questions other than the application process. We can advise you on matters that you need to prepare before accepting a foreigner, and how to manage the period of stay after employment, not only with the person in charge but also with the employee.
