Type of Status of Residence of Spouse

There are five types.

 

1  Spouse of Japanese

This will be given to a spouse who is in marrying with a Japanese.

 

2  Spouse of Permanent Resident

This will be given to a spouse who is in marrying with a Permanent Resident holder.

 

3  Dependent

This will be given to a spouse who receives support from their foreign spouse who is residing in Japan having the status of residence other than “Diplomat”, “Official”, “Technical Intern Training”, “Temporary Visitor” and “Designated Activities”.

This status of residence allows you to do ordinal activities.

 

4  Designated Activities

This will be given to a spouse who receives support from the one who is engaged in “Specific study operation” or “Specific information processing operation”.

This status of residence allows you to do ordinal activities.

 

5  Long-term Resident

Spouse of long-term resident will be “Long-term Resident”.

 

 

Dangerous Idea

This idea is dangerous.

 

“Since I still have a period of stay granted by “Spouse of Japanese”, “Spouse of Permanent Resident”, “Dependent”, and “Designated Activities”, it is no problem for me to live separately from my spouse during marriage or act freely after divorce.”

 

Japanese Civil Law Article 752 says:

“A husband and wife shall live together and provide mutual cooperation and assistance.”

 

This stipulates the obligation of living together, cooperation, and support.

 

Therefore, there will be a case where your status will be taken away or they will not give you next extension or change, even if you have the status of residence above-mentioned 1 to 4.

 

 

Notification

If you have the status of “Spouse of Japanese”, “Spouse of Permanent Resident”, “Dependent”, and “Designated Activities”, and if your spouse is dead or divorced, you have to report it to Immigration Office within 14 days from the day that happened.

 

 

Thank you.
