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 by requesting visa application services for international students?

It is possible to reduce man-hours by about 90%. After the request is made, we can directly contact the foreign student to prepare the application documents and receive the visa, so there is almost nothing for you to do. The progress of the application is shared as needed, and the status of the application can be smoothly monitored.

Is the contract shot or renewal?

Both are possible. In the case of educational institutions, we are often contracted on an advisory basis because they accept a large number of international students every year. Of course, there are also cases where educational institutions that want to handle all of their visa work in-house will request spot consulting services, and we are happy to assist them according to their needs.

I have had problems with the visa process before. Is it possible to consult with you individually?

Yes, of course. Visas are a very complicated system with different requirements depending on the situation of the subject, even for the same status of residence. We will advise you in detail on each case and suggest the best way to apply for a visa, even if it is complicated.

I was surprised to see that the number of years allowed after extending the period of stay has been increased. It was also good to know that foreign students no longer have to go to the Immigration Bureau for visa procedures.

The response time was quick and we were able to receive reports on the progress of the project each time, which gave us peace of mind. It was also very helpful to receive answers to questions and information not directly related to the project.
