Getting a visa in Japan!

Getting a visa in Japan!

Postby Karee18 » 23 Apr 2012, 23:39

Ok so I overstayed my passport visa and now have to leave to get a new one in order to get my ARC. I would go to hong kong but it's too expensive for the hotel and there is a holiday next week which will cause the offices to close on Tuesday thus delaying my trip even longer. So I want to go to Japan because I have a friend there and can stay for free. I was wondering if anyone knows where the office is in Tokyo for the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office and the number. Also I was wondering if anyone knows how's long it takes to process a working visa in Japan since I already have my work permit (which I got one day after my visa expired). Thanks in advance for any advice or help. I'm in a huge bind right now.
