I left Japan by re-entry. But I cannot re-enter Japan by Corona viruses before the expiration date of my staus of residence! How should I do?
If your period of stay has expired due to the effects of corona, or if you are a foreigner whose period of stay is about to expire but cannot return to Japan, you need to submit the following documents to the Immigration Bureau.
-Application for certificte of eligibility -Statement of reasons of the host institution
For example, your visa will expire at the end of June 2020, but you are returning to your home country by re-entry, and your flight will not be able to fly to Japan before your visa expires.
We have been receiving an increasing number of consultations from people who do not have staff at their host institution (e.g. “business management”). We, GYoseishoshi Lawyer could represent you, so please consult with us.

My client who lived in A Country contacted me in February, and asked. “I need to extend my status of residence in April, but when I go to Japan, I am isolated for 14 days, and maybe even flights from Japan may be denied entry. Can I somehow extend my status of residence without returning to Japan? “
A special case of immigration by Corona was announced, but the target was only those who’s expiry date is whithin in March 2020.
So he came to Japan ready to wait at home for 2 weeks after he back to A country.
Furthermore, it was announced during his visit to Japan that his current home would not accept returnees from Japan.
He can’t work.
Response of Japan was still loose in February though A country was more severe. Also the conditions such as refusal to enter countries changed every day.
