Re-entry Permits

Author:Michelle Seyller, Issue: September 2004, Topic: Immigration

What is a re-entry permit?
If during your period of residency, you wish to temporarily leave Japan, you must obtain either a single or multiple reentry permit. Should you leave Japan without a reentry permit, your alien registration card will be confiscated.

Reentry permit (single) 3000 yen
Reentry permit (multiple) 6000 yen (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!)

Where to get one:
In Mito: www.alientimes.org/pmwiki/images/maps/tokyoimmigrationmito1.jpg
In Tokyo: www.moj.go.jp/ENGLISH/index.html

What you need:
Your passport, alien card (gaijin card), 3000-6000 yen

How to do it (in Mito):
Go in, take a reentry permit application, and fill it out. Take a number, then go and buy your revenue stamp (for the cost of the permit - either 3,000 or 6,000 yen) at the combini (maybe a 7-11 - not sure).

Go back and wait for them to call your number.

When they call your number and you go up to the counter, give them your completed application, passport, and alien card. Then sit down and wait until they call your name.

When they call you back up, if there are no problems with your application, they will give you a second form. Wet the revenue stamp and stick it on, then sign your name at the bottom.

And you're finished!
