In the case of applying for a work visa, it is not uncommon for visas to be renewed or acquired, because they made false declarations.
At our office, we do a careful hearings, and we are keeping in mind the proposal that is tailored to the worries of visa applicants.
Even in the following difficult cases, we have a track record of going through the examination.

Before coming to Japan, it is not uncommon to enter the country by declaring that there are "no" despite the fact that there are families in the advice of local brokers.
When making a false declaration, it becomes difficult even if you try to attract a family after the foundation of life in Japan is made.

② Education history impostor / background spoofing

I misrepresented my final academic background at the time of entry, entered the country, applied for a visa, and I could not renew it.
When I visited on a trip, when I was asked about my occupation, I answered "company employee" even though I was a company manager.
There are many cases that the past response that you did with a light feeling will be a bottleneck at the time of visa application / renewal.
