A New Residency Management System

ページ番号 868-275-474

最終更新日 2012年7月9日

The existing foreign resident registration system started after July 9 (Mon.), 2012, and residence records just like those for Japanese will be created for foreign residents.
Up until now, foreign residents have had to use a certified copy of alien registration to prove their residency, but after July 9, 2012, foreign residents will receive copies of their certificates of residence, just like Japanese citizens. Foreign residents living in the same household as Japanese citizens will have their information listed on the certificate of residence for the entire household.

Whose Information Will Be Listed on Certificates of Residence?

Foreigners who do not fall under any of the following four categories will have their information listed on certificates of residence.

  • (1) Persons whose period of stay ends in three months or less
  • (2) Persons whose status of residence is "short term stay"
  • (3) Persons whose status of residence is "diplomat" or "official"
  • (4) Persons who do not have a status of residence

Copies of Residence Records

Residence records (the basic resident register) list and verify your past and present addresses, family composition, and other important information. Residence records are the foundation for national health insurance, national pensions, long-term care insurance, and other government services.

  • Who can ask for a copy of a residence record: The person that the residence record is for, someone from the same household as the person, or a representative with the express written consent of the person
  • What you need: Personal identification (such as your certificate of alien registration, residence card, or special permanent resident certificate)
  • Where to go to obtain a copy of a residence record: The Citizens' Registration and Affairs Section (Tanashi or Hoya building) or the Hibarigaoka Ekimae or Yanagibashi branch of the city office
  • Fee: 300yen per copy at the service counter and 200yen per copy at the automated certificate-issuing machines

Note: To use an automated certificate-issuing machine, you must have a Nishitokyo City Citizen's Card with a registered PIN. Please contact us for more information.

  • Inquiries: The Citizens' Registration and Affairs Section (Tanashi or Hoya building) or the Hibarigaoka Ekimae or Yanagibashi branch of the city office
