Alien Registration (Gaikokujin Toroku)

How to register

Anyone who does not possess Japanese nationality is required to complete alien registration (gaikokujin toroku) after entering Japan with any visa other than a 3 month tourist visa. Upon receiving this card, you must carry it with you wherever you go during your stay in Japan. The application forms necessary to complete registration can be found at the Citizen Affairs Division (Shimin Seikatsuka), located on the first floor of the Kamogawa City Hall.

If you are a foreigner and have moved to Kamogawa from another city within Japan, you must transfer your Alien Registration record to Kamogawa by registering at the City Hall within 14 days of moving. If moving out of Kamogawa to another city, register by going to the ward/city/town hall of your new residence.
