New Zealand Embassy Tokyo, Japan

Carry ID

New Zealanders visiting or living in Japan are reminded that it is a legal requirement for foreign nationals to carry their passport or Japanese resident card at all times. If stopped by police without a passport or resident card, a foreigner can potentially face temporary detention.

Resident cards are issued to mid-term to long-term foreign residents at major airports on arrival in Japan.  For more details on obtaining a card, see the Japan Immigration website.
