Permanent residency

Service Overview

Permanent residency

If you want to continue living in Japan for a long time, why don’t you consider getting a permanent residency? It has no need for a renewal nor a restriction on work.

Permanent residents are the people from abroad, given a permission by the Ministry of Justice to live in Japan as long as they want.

One of the best advantages of having a permanent residency is that it doesn’t have a restriction on the job you get. You are allowed to get any job you want, besides the ones that are illegal. You are also allowed to stay as long as you want, so no need to go through visa renewal processes ever again (except when you get deported. Then your permanent residency will be taken away).

Getting a permanent residency is recommend to those who have lived in Japan for a long time for work or family stay, as well as to the ones married to a Japanese person or a permanent resident in Japan. Permanent residency will give you more secured life in Japan.

You are not qualified to apply for a permanent residency until you’ve lived in Japan with a visa for more than 10 years. This duration might change slightly depending on what visa you have.

There are many important factors to be covered in order to get an application for a permanent residency accepted. The risk of them denying an application is high if you collect and prepare the necessary documents by yourself without knowing these important points.

We will assist you in every details with our expertise, so please don’t hesitate to contact us for a consultation.
