Application for extension of the validation period of a special permanent resident certificate

A special permanent resident must file an application for the extension of the validation period of his/her special permanent resident certificate at a municipality where his/her domicile is located, through procedures specified by the Ordinance of the Ministry of Justice, during the period from six months before the 16th birthday to the said birthday for those younger than 16 years old, or during the period from two months before the expiration date to the said expiration date for others.

However, in the case where it is difficult to file an application for the extension of the validation period of a special permanent resident certificate during the abovementioned application period due to a long-term medical treatment, a long-term overseas business trip, or other unavoidable reasons, the relevant person may file an application for the extension of the validation period of the special permanent resident certificate prior to the application period.
