I just arrived a couple of days to Japan and my single entry visa expires in 6 days, I had my departure flight on the last day of the visa. But when I pass the border security gate the sticker of landing permission says that the permit date is until the last day of May.

which should I follow: keep my flight to the last day of the visa or can I stay some extra days because the landing permission sticker says so?

    You used your entry visa to enter and recieved a permit to stay until the last day of May. What is not clear? May 14, 2023 at 17:30
  • Got confused since i thought the entry visa expiry date was the one to follow while staying here

    @MarkJohnson Not clear perhaps due to the fact thar many visas (such as Schengen) work differently.
