My spouse was arrested for overstaying

A foreign national illegally staying in Japan in violation of the immigration law may still be able to receive an exceptional permit from Minister of Justice and acquire a legitimate status of residence if he/she has strong ties to Japan or such person’s circumstances call for humanitarian considerations.

What is your situation?

  • I married a foreigner who is illegally staying in Japan, but I don’t know what procedures should be taken.
  • My spouse (husband/wife) who is illegally staying in Japan has been detained by the Immigration office.
  • I am staying in Japan illegally as I was not aware of the appropriate procedures, but I wish to continue living in Japan.
