Hi There, Seven years ago I overstayed my tourist visa. My only excuse is I was young and immature. I was deported and banned for 5 years. Now, I would like to visit the country again for a short vacation and to see some old friends. I know the ban has expired but I am still nervous about returning because Japanese immigration officials are very strict. I fear they will send me back on the first available flight back home because of my past. My question is now that my ban has expired do you think I will be scrutinized at passport control and have problems gaining entry? And, if you have had similiar problems or know someone who has faced a similiar experience I would appreciate it if you could contact me and give me some advice??
