Re-entry to Japan
I do not have a passport. Will I be able to re-enter Japan after going to see my family that have evacuated to another country?
Please apply for a passport unless you have a special reason for being unable to get a passport of your nationality. Those who cannot get a passport including stateless people will be issued re-entry permission. Explain the circumstances and consult with the Immigration Agency Services for application. For those who are applying for refugee status, it is generally considered difficult to get re-entry permission, however, if, for example, you are a refugee applicant with a residency status for more than one year, you may be eligible to Deemed Re-entry Permission. Therefore, if you are considering temporary travel, please consult with the Immigration Bureau about re-entry permission. You can also consult with Support-R.

When reentering Japan with a permission, your residency status before leaving Japan will stay active during its valid period, regardless of your destination . Please consult with the Immigration Agency Service for receiving a re-entry permission.
