I'm British and living back in the UK at the moment. My wife should be coming to join me soon and we are working on her spouse visa. I have had both a business and spouse visa in Japan, with no problems. My spouse visa and re-entry permit are current. We lived for a short time in the UK before marrying, and also lived in Australia for a few months.
We got married in the UK and registered in Japan
The main concern to me is that I'm not working full time currently, as the reason I came back to the UK was to do an MA and a DELTA. We have fairly substantial savings, and my wife will probably work part time when she gets here too. I should be back in work within a year, once I have graduated.
I am also wondering about the letter I need to write to the embassy in Tokyo, explaining why I want my wife to join me. Apart from the obvious reasons (I like my wife!), is there anything else I should say?
Does anyone have any wisdom to offer? Experiences to share?
Thanks in advance for your help!
