Student visa and past 2018/9/11 16:06
August 2017 we have a very smooth and happy vacation in Japan with my Japanese boyfriend and I am Filipina. The visa I used that time was tourist visa and it was just all my documents, Ifm the one who provide it all then luckily granted a 15days tourist visa.

Dec. 2017 we decided to go back and try the Visiting relative visa because we want to travel more together in japan. He helps me to provide all the documents. We also declare that I will be the one who will take care of his grandparents 92 and 93. Luckily again granted the 90days stay in japan.

Dec. 28 to be exact is a nightmare to be exact. My boyfriend went to Japan 1 day a head of my flight because he do early booking then when we try to book my flight the same day theres no flight available. So I have to go alone then the nightmarefs begin. When I landed japan itfs really cold winter season I forgot to take off my mask until I reached immigration he asked me to take it off then I did. I also mistakenly put tourist on the immigration small slip that need to fill in supposed to be I should write it as visiting relatives. Immigration officer asked me to come and follow him to his office because he will asked me questions. He also even asked for documents. Where will I stay, my ticket going back, what will I do etc. My BIG MISTAKE is I cannot show them anyyyyyy 🤧🤧🤧 All I know is I donft need to bring any like what happened last August visit because we dindnt show any during that time 🤧 and it was at Narita, Tokyo but this time in Chubu Nagoya airport which is the very strict one. Ending is I was sent back to the Philippines on the next day. I informed my agency what happened. Then they says I can still go back. This march 2018 we try to apply visa again tourist visa. Before I can get the result 3 to 7 days now I got my result august 2018 🤧🤧🤧 but it was deniedddddd not grantedddd .

I really want to go back there and be woth my boyfriendddddddd 😢😢😢
Now we are planning the Student visa theres a good agency here offering good oppurtunity to study in japan. We want to give it a try on my case is it possible for me to be granted a student visa? And have chance to study in japan ? 😢😢😢 I really want to learn nihonggo, japanese cultureeeeee. Please give me some advice. I will really appreciate it thanks and Godbless everyone.

Even though they said you were welcome to reaplly. You still have a denial on your record. So maybe the reason for the past rejection.

The rejection was clearly your fault, and this would need to be discussed in fine detail to explain the MISTAKE. Did you do this last time?

I would be asking most of your questions to your Japanese speaking Japanese boyfriend, rather than a English speaking form.

And I would consult/hire a Japanese immigration lawyer. They cost money, but worth it considering your now poor immigration history.

mistake ?. ignorant ?
I think you failed to show your purpose to come to Japan. because 90 days are long, they are suspicious that you came to work illegally.

japan have deportation law .

if you have been deported from japan ... you are banned from entering japan for 5years.

even if you try to enter through student .. they will still reject you .


if you marry your boyfriend .. i think instead of 5years ban it will reduce to 1year ban.
1, puting on mask is not the reason ... knowing your left and right is very important . have your itinerary and returning ticket.

2, if you really explain to the immigration officer that you are visiting your boyfriend . have his contact information and address .
they will contact him and let you go.

It sounds like you lied to immigration in order to get a longer visa period (90 days vs 15 days), because you werenft actually planning on visiting your own relatives, just his grandparents and then traveling with him, is that correct? You probably would have raised suspicions regardless.

Ifm sorry if the agency who arranged your visa didnft explain properly what documentation you needed but with one denial on record you probably wonft be able to enter Japan until the ban period expires. Consult the agency and an immigration lawyer.

Is there anyway to contact the Immigration? I tried to consult my concern at embassy of Japan here but they couldfnt give me even a small advice because they says the judgement is still in immigration. Everybody who applied for visa is not guaranteed itfs up to Immigration. I really want to explain my side 🤧 It was reall heart breaking.

Officer of Immigration Also tell me try again next time I can still sth like that just Ifm not sure.
And therefs a paper included when they give back my passport and it doesnft say 5years cannot enter japan it wasfnt check even if itfs on the choices.
Maybe somehow they can get it that I couldnft explsin my side during that time. Coz I was in super nervous mode. That feeling that you didfnt do anything bad but accusing you for the first time. Way far from my expectation.
If you wherein my shoe during that time promise it will give you a chill.
I know itfs my Big mistake now Ifm learning from it 🤗 Ifd just want to start new beggining and make things right. So please donft curse me ✌🏻

To Hakata san would you mind us to contact you? Where? Thank you so much

Your problem is you say you want to "learn nihonggo, japanese cultureeeeee", but everything about your story says that's a lie and you just want to stay with your boyfriend. Immigration officers are not stupid. Staying with your boyfriend is not a valid reason to come to Japan (if you were married, that would be a different story).

The problem now is you make it your self so complicated.
And getting the visa will just get more difficult.

1) Just apply a student visa and study in Japan to learn Japanese and culture
2) Get married and get a spouse visa

The more you make things up the more likely you will be denied again.

As mentioned before having a bf is not a reason to come to Japan for the immigration.
