    Is the zairyu card valid for renewal from the day it is entered or from the day it expires over 7 years?

      If it's permanent it's 7 years, if it's not permanent I won along with the visa, the Zairyu Card can't tell you the date plus the passport or visa counts from the expiration date so probably the Zairyu Card too.

      Good night, if you are a husband you probably don't have to, but since you have filled it you can take it as a doubt (since in Japan you have a demanding attendant), the power of attorney is usually for friends (not family), what you ask is the reason for staff can not go personally, such as illness and others.

    Hello, good afternoon, just to ask questions, I just came from Nagoya Immigration, I have seen permanent and my passport is expired. I was able to update normally, they did not ask me anything about my passport or my husband's. We both have a passport expired. And his zairo who wins in November has managed to update tb today. So for those who have seen permanent is just go with everything ready, photo and passport even if overdue that can do quietly. And if it's family, like us couple, presents together at the ticket office the documentation that they give a password only. Good afternoon everyone .

    For those who have seen permanent just take the Hagaki, photo and the old Zairyu card for renovation, it is fast and quiet, they do not ask for anything tax or anything, I myself asked that question in immigration, the answer I had was this tax problem is of city hall and who should, has no law that takes out permanent visa of people who must city hall or Hoken tax, and tb was said to approve the visa yes yes we want taxes paid. And she said that the day that you have some law for the permanent visa everyone will know.
    But whoever owes something should not fail to pay or negotiate.

      Good afternoon, according to our information, if you have not paid the tax (if you do not have it all), you can lose your visa even if it is permanent. We always call to ask questions but each clerk says something, so I advise taking care.

    Good evening, I needed the proxy form I did not find.
    One doubt, I read in the comments that even with permanent and if it goes back to Japan and the zairu is overdue it does not have problem.
    But I went to book my ticket and the agency advised me to renew before and not return due but I will travel with 1 month and 10 days before the expiration.
    What I have to do, I'm afraid I can not get back to Japan.
