Newsline: Thai embassy in Japan issues overstay warning

The Thai embassy in Japan has warned Thai citizens of being blacklisted by authorities if they overstay their visas or work illegally in Japan. Meanwhile, some Thai nationals who once worked illegally in Japan have shared their experiences after the embassy posted details of their stays online. Since the Japan government adopted a visa waiver policy for 15-day stays for Thai nationals in July 2013, the number of Thais overstaying their visas and working illegally in Japan has been increasing, which concerns the authorities there. “Working without permission is illegal in Japan and anyone who does so will be blacklisted from entering Japan again,” the Royal Thai Embassy in Japan wrote on its Facebook page, reminding Thai nationals about the consequences of overstaying their visas and working in Japan without a work permit.
