Client Testimonials

We used Mr. Matsuda's services to help us apply for a certificate of eligibility for a spouse visa. Our circumstances were unique in that I as the foreign spouse was still abroad during the entire process.

The first thing we noticed about Mr. Matsuda was how prompt he was with his reply. When looking for an immigration lawyer, I was limited to English google searches and I found many sites ambiguous. His website is clear and concise and provided an easy method of contact. After sending my initial inquiry, he replied within hours. He quickly emailed a list of questions for more clarification to further assess our situation. He then met my husband in person in Tokyo and myself over FaceTime to discuss the process going forward. We both noticed immediately how organized, knowledgeable, dedicated and efficient he is with all of his work. He asked just the right questions and also was upfront and honest regarding what may stand out to the immigration officers about our application.

After an in person meeting, he then gave us a list of documents we needed to provide for the application. He was always in immediate contact via email which was especially appreciated being abroad. He reviewed our documents and provided excellent advice on how to improve them. He then assembled a clear and organized packet and went above and beyond what was required to ensure that our application was strong, specifically including our CV's and compiling 10 photographs with accompanying descriptions. He even went to the immigration office a day earlier than expected to submit our documents. In addition to always having prompt communication regarding the process, he provided clear expectations for a timeline and even called the immigration bureau to inquire on the status of our application.

As soon as the certificate of eligibility was issued, he contacted us and was extremely flexible to meet with us and graciously guided me through the process of the spouse visa application. Overall, I am so impressed with our experience with Mr. Matsuda and without a doubt we will be asking him for assistance for all our future immigration needs. This process is extremely delicate and requires profound knowledge of Japanese law and bureaucracy and I would not trust anyone other than Mr. Matsuda to help. His dedication to his work is truly unique and unparalleled.

Both my husband and I are amazed and so grateful to him for his dedicated service, and I highly recommend Mr. Matsuda's services to anyone in need of an Immigration Specialist.

My husband and I initially contacted Mr. Matsuda to assist us in acquiring a dependent spousal visa. He was immediately willing to work with us and within our budget. He made the initial application process smooth, and he was always keeping us updated on the status. The open lines of communication made my husband and I feel much more comfortable during the process.

When I suddenly changed jobs in the middle of my husband’s visa application and had to change my own visa as a result, Mr. Matsuda was not ruffled – he gave clear, concise instructions on how to proceed in not only making sure my husband’s dependent visa application would not be hindered, but also in assisting me in getting my new visa. He went out of his way to help us and work within our schedules. Mr. Matsuda made it seem like my husband and I were his entire focus, even though I know he had other clients that he was working with at the same time.

Both my husband and I are amazed and so grateful to him for his dedicated service, and I highly recommend Mr. Matsuda’s services to anyone in need of an Immigration Specialist.

Mr. Matsuda from Matsuda Tokyo Immigration Legal Advisor's Office responded very quick to my inquiry about the application for a Japanese visa. After a few emails we met at Starbucks Meguro which was very comfortable. He showed me the ways to achieve permission to stay in Japan and we figured out that we should apply for an artist visa.

Mr. Matsuda made me prepared about the documents which I had to collect for a successful application. It took me about one month to gather all the documents. Those were for example reference letters and a self-written motivation. Also diplomas, forecast and press articles were included. All those documents had to be translated by Mr. Matsuda, which made a great job. He was always very kind and had every time the right information on his hand.

He applied at the Tokyo Immigration Bureau on my behalf and told me about the time line. It was great that in the end we got a good result. I got permission to receive the artist visa. Mr. Matsuda managed everything and in the end he presented me my residence card again at Starbucks Meguro.

Mr. Matsuda really focused on the application and he made it perfect without any mistake. He took his job very serious and in the end he succeeded. I would suggest anyone who would like to apply for a visa in Japan to write an inquiry to Mr. Matsuda. He might know the right solution for you.
