Japanese students and businessmen whose visas are expiring and have to return home can seek to stay in Canada a while longer, federal immigration officials say.

The temporary visa extension would allow thousands of Japanese nationals avoid returning home to the damage from last week’s earthquake and tsunami as well as ongoing nuclear threats.

“It would be much safer if these people can stay in Canada,” said Yoshito Ito, of the Toronto Japanese Association. “Some of them may have nothing to go home to.”

The association is involved in events to raise funds for those who’ve lost everything.

Federal immigration spokesman Kelli Fraser said her officials are working with other departments to monitor the situation in Japan.

“We welcome them (the Japanese) to seek extensions to their visas,” Fraser said Wednesday. “The majority of Japanese come to Canada as visitors and do not require a visa.”

Visitors from Japan can remain in Canada for six months, she said.

Students “can apply for an extension right now if they need one,” Fraser said. “The regular procedure will still allow them to stay.”

Some immigration border officers are expecting an influx of Japanese to seek refuge in Canada due to nuclear fallout because they have family here and can stay for half of the year.

Immigration lawyer Richard Kurland said those Japanese affected should be given an automatic extension.

“Some of these people face a nuclear risk if they return to Japan,” Kurland said. “They should be able to stay for six months because there appears to be an imminent nuclear risk.”

Meanwhile, U.S. officials said Japanese residents affected by the devastation will be granted a 30-day extension of their visas.

“If you have exceeded or are about to exceed your authorized stay in the U.S. you may be permitted up to an additional 30 days to depart,” U.S officials said in a statement.

There were 3,550 foreign students from Japan in Canada in 2009 and 6,450 workers, according to immigration statistics.

More than 235,000 Japanese tourists visited Canada last year, statistics show.
