About the amounts of our firm’s service fees

There is no question that the result that clients seek from Samurai Immigration Law Firm, which specializes in immigration, is visa permission. No matter how courteous, fast, and inexpensive our work is, it does not have meaning unless it results in permission. Because the visa is what ends up determining whether or not a foreigner can stay in Japan, our firm is particular about taking advantage of our specialized knowledge and bringing about results, in order to achieve our clients’ satisfaction in the form of permission. The Immigration Bureau makes the final decision about permission for a visa, and there are no firms that can judge with 100% certainty that permission will be granted, but based on our deep specialized knowledge and past experiences our firm is at a level at which for most cases we can judge whether they will be granted permission or not in advance.

Best choice guarantee system

At our firm, in the event that by some chance permission was not granted despite the fact that you commissioned us and we made an application, we will reapply, and even re-reapply depending on the circumstances, free of charge. In the event that, despite those applications, the final result was that permission was not granted, we will return the entire amount of fees. We can provide this system precisely because we have confidence. → Guarantee system

About the amounts of fees for services

At Samurai Immigration Law Firm, standard fees are set for all work, and they are to be paid in two portions, with one portion the “retainer fee” at the application stage, and one portion the “contingency fee” in the event that permission has been granted. Our firm also has three support plans, each of which has different support content and fees, and it is possible for clients to make choices that match their needs.
Additional fees other than the fees in the fee table will not arise, but in the event that an additional fee has arisen, we will explain it to the client in advance and then take action after obtaining his or her consent.
