Since July 9, 2012, Residence Records have been made for eligible foreign nationals, such as those who were previously entitled to have a Residence Card or were permitted as a Special Permission Resident. This allows these foreign nationals to have a copy of their Residence Record (Jumin-Hyo) or its related certificates issued at request. (Accordingly, the Alien Registration Act has been abolished and consequently, the certification of registered matters on the registration card is not to be issued any longer.)
If an eligible foreign national moves to a different municipality (city/word/town/village), they are requested to report to their former municipal office to have a “Move out Certificate” (Tenshutsu-Todoke) issued.
The following foreign nationals legally residing in Japan for more than three months (Tourists and persons who stay in Japan with a residence status of "temporary visitor" are exempted) will be listed on the Basic Resident Registration. (These foreign nationals are called Foreign Residents.)
If the necessary procedures are not completed at the Immigration Bureau or municipal office for renewing the period of their stay and/or their residence status regarding the aliens registration certificate, the residence record will not be issued. Please take necessary procedures as soon as possible.
