You can always follow up with the authorities to make sure your application hasn't got lost somewhere, but unfortunately the answer is that every application is dealt with on a case by case basis, it takes as long as it takes, they'll contact you when it has been accepted, or denied, or if they need anything else from you.

You used a lawyer to lodge the application, get them to follow-up with Immigration.

Mine took 5 months with no reply but it was a while ago.
It was totally fine they were just busy. We asked our immigration lawyer to chase it up as it had gone way past the usual time frame that immigration says on their website (which is up to 3 months)
After we chased them they completed it within the week!

Hi Mike

No not at all :) I applied for a CoE for spouse of a Japanese national visa. Also it was at the Nagoya immigration office

I literally heard nothing for 5 months and I was worried the whole time.
After my lawyer chasing it up we were told everything was fine and I got the CoE about a week later.

You have been waiting long enough so you are ok to give them a little nudge for an update through your immigration lawyer

Well, as you should know the business manager visa is one of the hardest to obtain so they will be looking carefully at all of the material you submitted. Three months is the "guideline", but it is just that. Shame you don't have a good immigration lawyer - after all, you are the one paying them to work on your behalf.
When mine (CoE/residence status) was done some years ago they might not have been too busy as it was approved quite quickly, but my application was pretty straight-forward and lots of supporting documents/experience for an established operation.
