CATEGORYTHE NECESSARY PROCEDURE DURING RESIDENCEVISA APPLICATION

What is the procedure we need while we stay in Japan?

If you stay at a status of residence for which employment is prohibited, such as "Student" or "Dependent", and get wage and work, you need to obtain permission to engage in activity other than that permitted by the status of residence previously granted.

Caution

Handling of residence card

When mid- to long-term residents have moved, if they does not notify the new residence within 90 days or notified of a false residential area, it falls under the reason for rescission of the status of residence, the status of residence is revocated, they may not be able to stay.
So, you need attention.

Also, if you do illegal acts such as forgery of residence cards, it may correspond to deportation reasons.

And, when you are sentenced to imprisonment with a false notification on the residential area of the residence card, or refusing to accept or present the card, you fall under the deportation reason.

If you want to work

Certificate of authorization for employment

Certificate of authorization for employment is a document certifying that a foreign national who wishes to work in Japan has a status of residence that can work in Japan or can take a specific job title.

It seems to be useful when a foreign national change jobs etc, but it seems that they are not actually used much.

However, if you have this certificate, it seems useful because you can easily prove that you can work.

Permission to engage in activity other than that permitted by the status of residence previously granted

In principle, a foreign national can not engage in activities other than that permitted by the status of residence previously granted.

Therefore, if you earn income from activities other than that permitted by the status of residence previously granted, you need to obtain permission to engage in activity other than that permitted by the status of residence previously granted.

By the way, this permission is granted within the scope of not impeding the activities pertaining to the status of residence currently owned by the foreigner.

What will happen if you do activity other than that permitted by the status of residence previously granted

If you are a person who is clearly doing activity other than that permitted by the status of residence previously granted(Illegal employment), you fall under the deportation reason and may be subject to deportation.
Furthermore, in the worst case, you may be imprisoned.

When receiving criminal disposition with a minor activity other than that permitted by the status of residence previously granted

If you are not a person who is clearly doing activity other than that permitted by the status of residence previously granted, and you are the one those who have done minor activity other than that permitted by the status of residence previously granted, and you are sentenced to imprisonment or more, it will fall under the deportation reason and may be subject to deportation.

Re-entry permission

Re-entry Permission

The freedom of departure is guaranteed to a foreign national, so it is unnecessary to taking special procedures other than receiving confirmation of leaving for departure.

And, once you leave Japan, the status of residence will be lost at that time, even during the period of stay, and in order to enter the country again, in principle you have to go through the same procedures as at the time of your initial entry.

Therefore, in order to avoid such a complicated procedure, there is a re-entry permit system.

Special Re-entry Permission

A "Special Re-entry permit system" was established by revising the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act in 2009.

As a result, those who possess a passport valid for a foreign national staying in Japan with a status of residence (limited to those holding a residence card in the case of middle- and long-term residents) are requested to the immigration inspectors at the time of departure , When expressing the intention to enter the country again and departing from the country, it was considered that he was given permission for re-entry.

Foreign nationals in possession of a valid passport and a residence card who will re-entry to Japan within 1 year of their departure (or by the expiration date of the period of stay, whichever comes first) will, in principle, not be required to apply for permission of re-entry.
