Benefits of permanent residence
You do not have to worry about the period of stay
The normal status of residence has a deadline. You must renew each time. However, when you acquire permanent residence you do not need to renew.
There is no job restriction
There is a fine rule on working visas, but you can do whatever you do if you gain permanent residency. Of course you can also do your own business.
Your social credit will be higher.
In many cases, you can borrow money from a bank to purchase real estate. You can also make a credit card with a high status.
If you acquire permanent residence rights, your social credibility will increase at once.
Your business will be easier
For example, when a foreigner starts a business, there is a requirement such as “Capital 5 million yen or more must be prepared” or “It is a business that has a scale to hire two or more full-time employees” .However, if you are a permanent resident, the above requirements are unnecessary. You can start up as soon as Japanese do.
Good for your family
Spouse of permanent resident has no restrictions on employment. Also, if that child was born in Japan, it will be a spouse etc of a permanent resident.
There is no employment restriction for spouses and children. This is a big advantage.
It is okay if there is a change in the status
For example, let’s consider a case where your status of residence is a Japanese spouse or the like.
If you get divorced or deceased with your spouse, you have to return to your home country or change to a work visa or Long term visa within 6 months.
But, if you are a permanent resident, such worries are unnecessary. You can legally stay in Japan.
