Q: The dependent visa of my wife has been granted. But her period of stay granted is only 4 months. Why did this happen?


A: My guess is that your (the husband's) remaining period of stay was less than 6 months at the moment of application. The Immigration Bureau grants the dependent visa based on the status of the main provider of his/her living expenses. You should have extended your visa first or, at least, should have applied for extension of your own visa along with her application to let her get the visa with longer period of stay.
