Changing your Status of Residence

ID番号 N32514 更新日 平成29年4月25日

There are many reasons to change your Status of Residence. You may be getting married to a Japanese national, and want to change your Status from employment to spouse. You may be a student who has graduated and found a job, changing your Status from student to employment. You may have switched jobs from a teacher to an interpreter, meaning you have to change from “Instructor” to “Specialist in Humanities/International Relations.” When changing from your original stated purpose for coming to Japan, you must apply for permission to change your status of residence accordingly.

 

If you do not do so, or do not seek permission to engage in activities other than those specified in your status of residence, you will be breaking the law and will be liable to criminal prosecution and possible deportation. Making an application to change your status of residence may not necessarily be approved, and in some cases you may be forced to leave the country.

 

There are an infinite number of possible situations, so for further information please contact the Morioka Immigration Office.
