  1. By the way, even if you could get into Japan I'm not sure if you could get married on just a passport. It's simple to get married here but usually requires a kosekitohon which you wouldn't get until *after* you have a visa and register at a city/ward office. Just checked the local ward office home page and all they say is to consult with the marriage desk. Ultimately doing it that way might end up being a lot more problematic than going with CR-1 or K-1
  2. There will be a lot of red tape and mandatory quarantine but Japanese citizens can travel outside of Japan and return. Your partner could come visit you in the US, get married, then fly back to Japan while you start the CR-1 process. That will take longer than a year though: K-1 is probably still the quickest route.
  3. You can't get a spouse visa for Japan if you aren't already married, and won't be allowed entry on a tourist visa to get married. http://www.moj.go.jp/isa/content/001347332.pdf
  4. Good. The purpose of the H1B program is wage arbitration, which is really unnecessary considering the unemployment situation right now. The majority of H1B recipients make below median wages, at the lowest possible tiers (below 17th and 34th percentile), and the LCA requirement is not enforced. Anyone interested in the facts on H1B should read this paper that came out recently: https://www.epi.org/publication/h-1b-visas-and-prevailing-wage-levels/
  5. At the moment Japan is not even allowing foreigners with valid JP spouse visas or permanent residency to enter the country. No exemptions whatsoever.
  6. There's a 99% chance this would only apply to H1B, H2B, OPT and other working visas and zero information except Trump's tweet, but here we have 13 pages of speculation already...
  7. The Supreme Court already ruled he has basically free reign when it comes to immigration restrictions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trump_v._Hawaii#Opinion_of_the_Court
  8. Cue Corporate America whining that they can't find workers when 22 million Americans are unemployed. The H1B and OPT programs should be canceled outright.
