hi i'm from philippines and wishing to pull out my working visa process, i started to apply to the agency( jopman agency) for working visa in japan last year of october,. and my employer confirmed my job there. i completed all my documents and stuffs they needed, but i made a decision that i dont want to pursue the job anymore this march cuz i found some job offer in another country. i often called the agency about it and its freaking taking so long for a visa process. i tried to pay for the cancellation and the papers i signed worth 20,000 yen but they didnt accept it due to some reason they said the employer effort whatsoever, so i gave another shot to wait for it and she said it will release this may but it didnt happen. so my concern is, do i have the right to just ignore it and dont use the visa if they release it, is there any more ways to pull out the visa myself cuz i have another plans this december. i feel stuck here waiting and they dont want to give my passport back..and im so tired of waiting for that visa which was since november 2011 as they said they started to process my papers. Is there any legal ways i can do about it? please help me Sad

Let them keep your passport then they can never use it! then apply for the new one just declare it lost. No one should force you to leave, if you don't want to! end the story! Rolling Eyes

I bet she is just bluffing! Go to your Overseas employment agencies then tell them your complaint. It is no longer your fault that they are taking so long to process the visas. When visa are not issued within a couple of months time, you are not responsible if you take other options because you gave them enough waiting time. Ensure that you inform authority about this agency although they are legal, time is limited for them to provide the visa. They have wasted enough of your time, sometimes agencies are doing this without considering your situation just for the sake of more money they can get from you. Mad

your remedy is to file a complaint at poea. i don't recommend that you declare your passport as lost when you know where it is. i hope your communication was in writing so you can prove your efforts to cancel the contract.

you can send a demand letter, but if they refuse, then a complaint at the poea is your remedy. they might settle with you by returning your passport
