Clients contact our office by contact form, email, or phone.
The 1st remote interview is conducted via Zoom, Line etc.
If you wish, our office staff will come to see you nearby, at your home, some rental office space, cafeteria, etc., so we will have an interview in person.
(In this case, daily allowance 5,000 yen +tax + actual expenses including transportation fee will be paid by the client later)
The first consultation (about 30min. to 1 hour) is free.
We charge 5,000 yen + tax per hour for the second and subsequent consultations.
However, if we receive an order for Naturalization application, it will be treated as included in the price and will be free of charge.
Based on the “detailed interview” and the “questionnaire you filled out”, our office will determine whether or not naturalization is possible.
If we are able to accept your order, we will present an estimate, and if you request it, we will create a business consignment contract.
Half of the total amount is paid as a business start fee, and a receipt is issued.
We will present a list of documents that you have to collect and request you to fill out a sheet of information for the preparation of the document at the start of business on the side of our office.
No matter which plan you choose, we will kindly and politely inform you where to collect the necessary documents and how to collect them, so please count on our office staff.
We have to obtain “the closed alien registration card” and “entry (return) record” from the Ministry of Justice required for filling out application documents, so please prepare 2 copies of the Certificate of residence and 2 copies of the residence card (front and back).
Also, it takes time to obtain the documents from your home country, so at this point, we will ask you to contact your family or relatives who will be in charge of obtaining the documents.
At the same time, please make a reservation call for the first preliminary consultation with the jurisdictional legal affairs bureau.
We will accompany you to the first preliminary consultation (about 1 or 2 months after reservation call) at the jurisdictional legal affairs bureau and confirm that there are no omissions in the documents to be collected.
(Other than Tokyo and Saitama, daily allowance and actual transportation expenses will be charged.)
(Depending on the judicial officer’s discretion, your nationality, residence status, etc., the required documents may increase more than expected, so our office staff will directly confirm with the legal officer in charge.)
After consulting with the Legal Officer, we will offer to submit a total of two copies of the “original set of application documents” and “copies of all of them” completed by our office. (If there are no omissions in the documents, the legal affairs bureau in Tokyo will receive them as they are. However, at present, the Saitama Legal Affairs Bureau has a policy of not accepting documents at the first consultation even if there are no omissions in the documents, so it is necessary to make an appointment for the date of submitting the documents at a later date. In the case of other prefectures, we’ll follow the instructions of the officer in charge.)
If necessary, we will ask you to make a reservation for the document submission date.
You can submit the documents about one month after the reservation, and if there are no problems, the Bureau will accept them. (At this point, please pay the remaining balance as this is the actual completion of the Naturalization application.)
After that, you will receive a phone call from the Legal Affairs Bureau for an interview in about three months. (If you have a spouse, the spouse may be called. In that case, you two will have a separate interview with an officer in charge on the same day. Please be assured that we will give you advance advice on questions to be asked at the interview.)
After the interview, the examination will be completed in about one year, and the officer in charge of the Legal Affairs Bureau will contact you by phone about whether or not you can be naturalized.
Here is a detailed explanation of the two plans, but if it is difficult to understand, please refer to the slide right below first of all.
This is an illustration of the differences between the two plans based on the exchange of documents between our office and the customer until the application to the Immigration Bureau.
Recommended for busy people who cannot find time to obtain documents from government offices on weekdays, or those who do not have much knowledge about naturalization procedures.
Recommended for those who would like to save money by doing what they can do on their own.
