Consequently, if you wish to continue the same activities in Japan with the present Status of Residence beyond the original period of stay, you must apply for an extension no later than the last day of that period. However, the extension will not be granted if the purpose of the stay has already been completed or there are some issues connected with your Status of Residence. Applications for extensions may be submitted from three months before the expiration date of the original period of stay if that stay is at least six months.
