When you board a large cruising ship, do you go through immigration, and leave the country (that is: do you get a stamp into your passport, declaring that you have left the country, similarly to what you get juts before getting on an international flight)?
Similarly, when you finish cruising, and arrive to your final destination
, do you get a stamp (declaring the date of arrival)?
I am planning to go on cruising in Japan
. We depart from Yokohama, and return to there. On the way we will visit several Japanese cities, and also Russia
for one day. I am not Japanese citizen (so I don't have a Japanese passport), but I am a resident, and have a resident card.
I am asking this, because my contract
here in Japan
allows me to leave the country for 30 days within one year (otherwise I will get a deduction from my salary), and I wonder whether cruising counts as a leave.
So: do I get stamps or not? What is the rule/custom in general (and especially in Japan)?
Thanks in advance.
