Japanese spouse's period of stay
In the case of the status of residence of "Spouse or Child of Japanese National", which is permitted when a foreigner marries a Japanese, the period of stay is "6 months", "1 year", "3 years", and "5 years".
When renewing your status of residence, the continuity of your marriage will be determined based on your family structure and the length of your marriage.
Therefore, if there is no reason why the spouse cannot live together because the spouse is living away for work, the continuity of the marriage may be questioned.
In addition, if a person who has been granted the status of residence of "Spouse or Child of Japanese National" immediately after marriage applies for renewal for the first time, the marriage period will be about 2 years.
In that case, it seems difficult to be granted a period of stay of "3 years".
