Application for reissuance of a special permanent resident certificate in cases the certificate-holder wishes to have the card exchanged

This is an application to be filed when a person wants to have his/her special permanent resident certificate exchanged, and can be filed even when a special permanent resident certificate has not been damaged. Applicable cases include those where a person wants to change the photograph indicated on his/her special permanent resident certificate, or where a person wants to have his/her name written in Chinese characters (an application for indication of name using kanji characters on the residence card needs to be filed separately). During the validation period of a special permanent resident certificate, an application for reissuance may be filed at any time at a municipality where the relevant person's domicile is located, through procedures specified by the Ordinance of the Ministry of Justice. However, when receiving issuance of a special permanent resident certificate through these procedures, he/she must pay a fee of 1,300 yen.
