Residence examination processing period

Publication of residence screening processing time (in days)
Starting from FY 2017, the average number of days of processing time for residence screenings at regional immigration servicbureaus nationwide will be published.

*1 The information will be released every quarter (based on the date of processing).
*2 Excludes "Diplomat" and "Official" statuses of residence.
*3 This data relates to the period from receiving the application until the notification of permission has been delivered. Instances in which applications were withdrawn or rejected are not included in the data.
*4 Because the processing periods for applications for extension of period of stay and applications for change of status of residence are treated as ongoing until notification of permission is delivered (in person at an immigration office), the actual screening period may be shorter than the dates shown in the documents below.
*5 The examination period for designated activities differs depending on the activity.
