    I am a us citizen working with the military in Okinawa Japan. I am on government orders. I have a great friend in Pakistan and I want him to come and visit. How hard is it to get a visitors visa? Does it take long? What do I do.

    Thank you

    I’m a US Citizen and I’m a Japanese Permanent Alien Resident working for the US Navy as Ship Superintendent under the Master Labor Contract of Japan. I’m inviting my fiancee to spent time with me prior to getting married. What is the chance of my fiancee getting her Visa application approved to come over to be with me?

    Dear Reyo,

    I am sorry to hear of your situation. I first suggest that you contact your embassy and find out if they can provide you with a referral to support services for unmarried mothers in Japan. Next, you need to speak to an immigration attorney. Sometimes they do a free initial consultation.

    Im filipina married to a japanese guy, I have been feeling overwhelming amounts of stress from my husband yelling at me and arguing with me all the time. Im abused verbally…so I was planning to divorce him but I just find out that I’m 5 weeks pregnant. He asked me to go for abortion, I refused. since then he’s been careless. I cry everyday, I tried to make things work, but it gets worse day by day..The question is what to do? Can I still have a visa if I divorce to my husband? Unfortunately, I’m holding tourist visa valid for 3 months only.. He told me before after that he is going to process my spouse visa. Now I feel like I’m hopeless. Pls help me. I’m getting depressed…
