What is naturalization?

There are many foreigners who want to be naturalized.But what is naturalization in the first place?What’s the procedure?Naturalization refers to “acquiring nationality of another country at your request and becoming a citizen of that country.”Some countries can have multiple nationalities, but in Japan only one nationality is recognized, so if you naturalize in Japan, you will have to give up your current nationality.And the examination of naturalization is stricter than that of a permanent visa.If you don’t prepare well and collect the documents, you won’t even be accepted by the Legal Affairs Bureau, so if you’re thinking about naturalization, you’ll need to be prepared.

Benefits of naturalization and changes due to naturalization

  1. 1. Naturalization is a Japanese national, so there are no restrictions on work.You can do anything as long as you don’t violate the law.

  4. 4. If you are 18 years old or older, you can vote in local elections as well as national elections.Also, when a certain age comes, you can run in national and local elections.
  5. 5. A permanent resident needs various administrative procedures as a foreigner, but if he/she is naturalized, he/she will acquire Japanese nationality, so he/she will not need it.
  6. 6. Permanent residents do not have the right to vote, but if they are naturalized, they will have the right to vote.
  7. 7. The procedures for permanent residents are not much different than before the acquisition of a permanent resident visa, but if you are naturalized, you can travel to more than 150 countries as a Japanese without obtaining a visa.
  8. 8. A permanent resident may be deported back to his or her home country if he or she falls under the category of deportation, but if he or she is naturalized, the punishment shall apply under Japanese law

The contents which it is asked by circumstances of each naturalization applicant including the process when it is married in process and Japan of the visit to Japan are different.

  • ②The living situation

    The situation is different by cases, but the situation of the living of the naturalization applicant is examined strictly, and the detailed question about it is done in the naturalization interview depending on a naturalization applicant. Naturalization application is admitted, and it feels uncomfortable at a living condition, and, after the nationality acquisition in Japan, it falls into the situation to affect life in Japan, and it is one of the reasons that is to avoid the situation not to be able to live a national life if not under the protection. In addition, attention is necessary about the tax payment intention as the observance of a contract of the duty to pay tax whether pays a tax properly is examined strictly.

  • ③Confirmation of the Japanese understanding

    It becomes essential to be able to speak Japanese reading and writing and Japanese in naturalization being admitted, and living as a Japanese after the nationality acquisition in Japan. In the interview by the attache, I examine the Japanese ability of the naturalization applicant strictly.

Q.For an interview of the naturalization application, does an expert not have you appear instead?

In other words, you must receive the interview after the naturalization application only in naturalization applicants even if you act for one naturalization application procedure, and, as for call and substitution of the interview, it is not admitted by a specialized administrative scrivener, judicial scrivener.

Therefore, after the naturalization application acceptance, I take the time enough beforehand, and interview measures simulate the precaution in contents and the naturalization interview that will be asked a question in the interview by the attache without remaining in documents making of the naturalization application in our office.

Q.Can unemployment or the full-time homemaker apply for the naturalization, too?

In addition, the permission of the naturalization becomes difficult when there are circumstances such as living while being on welfare.

Q.Even if there is a criminal record, can I be naturalized?

A.The correspondence varies according to the kinds of the crime. When the period of around five years passes after finishing the execution of the punishment or after ceasing to receive the execution of the punishment, there is the admitted example.

Q.I make living by a part-time job, am I going to be admited the naturalization application now?

A.In the case of naturalization application, it is not considered to be requirements to be the regular staff of the company.
However, it is necessary to be able to live a life as requirements of the naturalization without becoming the national care (welfare) as living requirements that is a Japanese. I am seen in the income and expenditure situation of the 1-month-old naturalization applicant strictly now. If I get the balance of the incoming and outgoing and do not live a painful life, the naturalization application is allowed even if it is a parttimer. But, in the case of a naturalization interview, a summary of the living is asked about in detail.

A.The correspondence varies according to the kinds of the crime. When the period of around five years passes after finishing the execution of the punishment or after ceasing to receive the execution of the punishment, there is the admitted example.

A.In the case of naturalization application, it is not considered to be requirements to be the regular staff of the company.
However, it is necessary to be able to live a life as requirements of the naturalization without becoming the national care (welfare) as living requirements that is a Japanese. I am seen in the income and expenditure situation of the 1-month-old naturalization applicant strictly now. If I get the balance of the incoming and outgoing and do not live a painful life, the naturalization application is allowed even if it is a parttimer. But, in the case of a naturalization interview, a summary of the living is asked about in detail.

“The nationality acquisition” is a system to acquire Japan nationality by a person meeting constant requirements younger than 20 years telling the Minister of Justice.
