Responsibility when visa application is denied
We have received an inquiry from a foreigner who entered Japan with a working visa (technical/humanistic knowledge/international work) and worked for a construction company. This person cannot renew his visa for not working the job of the given status of residence. In that case, can the worker change jobs and work on the same visa? From the conclusion, if your visa application is disapproval, unfortunately, you must leave Japan at the time your visa is expired. Even if the period of stay remains and you are lucky enough to change your job, the visa application to Immigration Act will be stricter because you have made a false application. For example, even if the employer makes the worker does simple work that is different from the status of residence, the worker is still responsible. Of course, not only workers but also agents and employees also receive a very heavy penalty to apply for the false status of immigration status. If you are thinking of hiring a foreigner, please be careful to ensure that the content of work matches immigration status. Don't forget that foreigners working in Japan from overseas will be responsible if they work different jobs from the status of residence.
