Extension of Period of Stay or Change of Status

In regard to Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act, international students are granted a permit to stay in Japan. Students who need to stay in Japan for a longer period or to change your status such as from ‘Student‘ to ‘Temporary Visitor’ or other (or vice versa), must apply.

The procedure for obtaining an extension of period of stay must be completed at the Sendai Regional Immigration Bureau(TEL. 022-256-6073, open until 4 pm on weekdays) or the Immigration Office in the area where you have your certificate of residence before the authorized period of stay or current status expires.
