TOP > Procedures > Extension/Renewal (VISA extension)
"Period of Stay" is the valid length of "Status of Residence". A foreign national can legally stay in Japan within his/her "Period of Stay".
"Period of Stay" is usually decided between 15 days and 5 years, except "Diplomat", "Permanent Resident", and so forth. A foreign national who wants to stay in Japan beyond the period, he/she can apply for its extension. "Period of Stay" can be extended in some conditions.
This procedure is often called "VISA extension", "VISA renewal", etc. However, a foreign national stays in Japan based on "Status of Residence" and its "Period of Stay", therefore "extension of "Period of Stay"" is more proper way to express the procedure.
