Re-entry Permit

When you leave Japan temporarily during your period of stay (to visit your home country or travel abroad during a long vacation), be sure to obtain a ‘Re-entry Permit’ from the Immigration Bureau before your departure. Generally, Re-entry Permits are issued on the day of application. Failure to obtain this permit will make invalid the remaining period of stay. This means you cannot return to Japan as scheduled, for you are required to obtain visa once again for re-entry to Japan.
