【永住ビザ・帰化】Naturalization vs Permanent Residence


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

As you live in Japan for a long time, you may think about Naturalization and Permanent Residence. Should I change my visa or not? What status is the best option for me?
You may wonder about it. Today, let’s compare Naturalization and Permanent Residence!

〇Naturalization
Being legally Japanese people. You will be granted the rights that the Japanese have by nature.

For example,
 ・ You can be a civil servant
 ・ You can get the right to vote
 ・ You can get the right to be voted. You will be able to run for election.
   Nowadays we can see a lot of politicians who used to be foreign nationals.
 ・ You do not have to have a Visa.
 ・ You can get a Japanese passport
 ・ You will lose your nationality
   When you go back to your home country, you will have to obtain the country’s visa

〇Relationship-based VISA
 ・ You can continue to live a stable life while maintaining your nationality
   ・ You do not have to renew your Visa
   ・ You will not lose your Visa
   ・ There are no restrictions on residential activities
       You can engage in manual labor, simple work, nightlife business
 ・ You can get a housing loan easier
       Your credibility is risen.

If your visa expires while you are applying for Permanent Residence, you must renew your current Visa. Application for Permanent Residence is not the procedure for visa change. If you fail to renew your current visa, you will lose it (this is applied to Naturalization process, too.)

In the normal application, you are required to submit the original documents.
But when you apply for Permanent Residence and Visa renewal at the same time,
you are allowed to attach the copy to the renewal and the original to the Permanent Residence.

Visa renewal application can be done 3 months from the expiry date. If you are going to apply for Permanent Residence soon (or you have already applied), please finish your Visa renewal application early.

How was it?
Have you found any clue on your life plan?

Thank you for reading.
