【帰化】Question Examples in Naturalization Interview


Hello. I'm Nakajima, in charge of Applying for Relationship-based VISA.

Naturalization, the process of acquiring Japanese nationality.
The process is quire different from that of visa application. It is like another world for you. The first day you visit the Legal Affairs Bureau is not the interview, just a brief meeting. At that day, you will be asked some questions and receive the list of documentation.
Today, I will disclose what kind of questions in this meeting!

Place of meeting: A single room of the Legal Affairs Bureau
The length: About 1 hour

Please calm down and listen carefully.

Example of questions:

 ・ Nationality, address, name, the first day you came to Japan, status of residence
   Your current situation
 ・ If you keep your previous passports
   Do you keep all the previous passports?
 ・ Family structure
   Please talk about your family in your country.
 ・ Household situation
   Do you live with someone or live alone?
 ・ Crime record, illegal stay record
   Please, please do not lie to the inspector. It will be revealed in the end.
 ・ Departure record
   How many days have you been outside of Japan in recent 5 years? It is good
     for you to calculate it beforehand.
 ・ If you have your driving License and of yes, if you have traffic infringements
   Please answer honestly if you have violated, even if it is the trivial ones.
 ・ Educational background
   Please answer the last school you graduated from.
