Hi there, does Japan have the US style mass deportations of any illegal immigrants? Will Japan's version of ICE actively hunt down overstayed Gaijins, detain and deport them?
In that case, my answer is slightly different. Nothing from my earlier post changes, but I will add this. Japan will not hunt down an overstayer, but there can be serious problems when leaving the country, even if one is 1 day over the visa. Going into immigration beforehand has sometimes yielded softer repercussions. Sometimes.
