working holiday visa rejected 2019/8/19 08:13
I have just returned to the UK after traveling for the last year. I was intending to apply for a working holiday visa for Japan to go out for the ski season and travel around after. Having visited the embassy with all the required documents, believing I met all the conditions. They said that I am not classed as a resident of the UK and I have no been living here permanently for the last year. There is no definition of gresident of the UKh that they seem to adhere to. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem. Or got a WHV for Japan after traveling to other countries, in the same situation Ifm in. Thanks in advance guys!

I do not know the UK regulation but in my home country if I leave one outside my country that I am not a resident anymore. I will still have my nationality but the city ward makes a note. When I am back I need to go to the city ward and inform I am living again in my country.

I assume this is the same issue, but I can be wrong.

You need to have been residing in your home country for longer than twelve months. Which you have not, as you explained your previous travel movements. That is a condition they (Japan) put on their visas.

Not "their visas", just the WH.

Claire did your visa get accepted or rejected in the end?

I was in a similar situation and applied last week for my WHV. Everything seemed to go fine when I applied and there was no problems with my documents. I was wondering if you were told this when you tried to apply or if if you returned to collect your passport and found you had been rejected?

I had spent the past 13 months in aus and nz and last week got my japanese working holiday visa declined. When i submitted it he said it's not a gurantee for it to be declined but will go against the application. Thought I'd try anyway... But sadly unsuccessful

Perhaps you didn't reside in your country of residence and that's why you were rejected.
