What is naturalization?

Naturalization is to acquire Japanese citizenship in a procedure where a foreigner becomes a Japanese.
3 types are prescribed for naturalization, and there are "ordinary naturalization", "simple naturalization", and "naturalization". Each has different requirements.

1. Common naturalization

Normally naturalization is a general foreigner, foreigners who are born in a foreign country and who are coming to Japan for work or study abroad apply.

Housing requirements: To have an address in Japan for at least 5 years.
"Continued for 5 years or more" does not apply if you have lived in Japan for 2 years, then for some reason abroad for 1 year, and have lived in Japan for 3 years.In this case, it will not be counted for 2 years before going abroad.Therefore, it is important to continue living in Japan.In addition, as a guide when leaving Japan, if the number of days of departure is 1 months or more, it will not be considered as "continue".In addition, even if the number of days of departure is not 3 months or more, it should be noted that if you leave Japan for a total of 1 or more after repeating short-term departures during the year, this will not be considered as "continue" either. ..Even if you are on a business trip, hospitalized for your family, or for any other reason, it seems difficult to consider the reason.In addition, for the period of "continue to be 3 years or more", it is necessary to work for 1 years or more with a working status of residence.If you have a student visa, you must live in Japan as an international student for at least 150 years, and after graduation, you must live in Japan for at least 5 years with a work visa. Even if you have lived for more than 3 years, if you have been an international student for a long time, you will not meet the conditions.

There are exceptions to the above conditions
· When living in Japan for more than 10 years
You can apply for naturalization even if the working period is 1 year.
· For Japanese spouse visa
You can apply for naturalization if you live in Japan for more than 3 years.

Capability requirement: Being 20 years old or younger and having ability to act according to home country law.
To apply for naturalization, you must be at least 20 years old.However, if the whole family applies for naturalization, even minors can apply for naturalization.
Behavioral requirement: Being good is good.
· Taxes and pensions
Paying inhabitant tax, corporate tax, individual business tax, annuity properly
· Traffic violation
Although it is not necessary to worry so much if there is a minor parking violation degree, drunk driving etc. are subject to naturalization application
It is difficult to have subjects judging that "novelty is good".
Livelihood Requirement: To be able to live by spouse or other relative who also make a living together.
Whether you can live with your own income or who lives with your family is asked whether you can live with your family income. If there is stable income such as salaried worker, even if there is no savings is okay. Currently unemployed persons need assurance that they have assets and savings and are able to maintain their lives for the time being, or they are receiving aid from their relatives.
Regarding home, it does not matter whether you are a home owner or a rental house. Also, for debts such as mortgage loans, car loans, credit cards, there is no problem if repayment is properly done.

2. Simplified Naturalization

Simple naturalization is to allow naturalization by relaxing the housing, ability, and living conditions, focusing on the territorial and blood relations with Japan, and marrying Korean residents, special permanent residents, and Japanese. This applies to foreigners who are living in the following cases.The contents of the relaxation of conditions are different for each.

Basically it is the same as normal naturalization, but the content of relaxation is classified as below.

Case where the residence requirement (having continued to have an address in Japan for more than 5 years) is relaxed
A son of a person who was a Japanese citizen (not adopted), who continues to have an address and residence in Japan for more than 3 years
People who were born in Japan, continue to have an address / residence in Japan for more than 3 years, or their father or mother (unfit mother-in-law) was born in Japan
Person who has address and residence in Japan for more than 10 years
Cases where residence conditions (continuing to have an address in Japan for 5 years or more) are relaxed and ability conditions (20 years or older and having ability under the law of the home country) are exempted
People who are foreigners who are spouses of the Japanese citizens, continue to have an address and residence in Japan for more than 3 years, and currently have an address in Japan (the period of address and residence is questionable but the marriage period is not questioned)

A foreigner who is the spouse of a Japanese citizen who has been married for three years and has an address in Japan for one year or more (the marriage period is questioned, but the residence condition is one year or more).

* Foreign nationals who are Japanese spouses are not asked about their work experience, so it is okay to work unemployed. Also, regarding pensions, if you are a spouse of a Japanese employee who is an office worker, you are not obliged to pay the pension if you are dependent.

The conditions of residence (continuing to have an address in Japan for 5 years or more) have been relaxed, and the conditions of ability (being 20 years of age or older and having the ability according to the law of the home country) and living conditions (living by the person or a spouse or other relatives who share the same livelihood) Cases where you are exempted from being able to run
A person who has a Japanese address as a child of a Japanese citizen (not adopted)

People adopted by the Japanese people, continued to have an address in Japan for more than 1 years, who was a minor at adoption

Person who lost Japanese nationality and has address in Japan (person who lost Japanese nationality after naturalization is not allowed)

A person who was born in Japan, has no nationality since birth, and continues to have an address in Japan for more than 3 years
