Question about G325A's Where have you lived for the last 5 years

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

So, from late 2009 to February 2010, I lived in Tokyo on a Temporary Visitor Status, then I spent 13 days in Thailand, then I returned to Tokyo to renew my temporary visitor status. Since I was only in Japan as a "visitor", do I need to include the address of where I was living during those 6 months, even though I was technically just there as a tourist? (I was living with my girlfriend by the way). If not, how do I go about explaining the gap in time on my "where have you lived for the last 5 years?" question.

Thanks for shooting me back to that thread. I just saw the answer again. So basically are the rest of you in agreement? If the person has been at a place less than 6 months, does that mean that place shouldn't be listed in this part of the forms? My girl just spent nearly 3 months with me in the US at one address while on her temporary visitor status. I guess that this is not worth mentioning as a "residence in last 5 years" then, right?

If you were living in Japan together I would include the address as it is proof that you are in a relationship. You are dealing with the US gov so I am certain they are not going to worried about your visa status in Japan.

Any place you LIVED, whether as a tourist, visitor, employee, etc, needs to be listed, except for very short stays, I agree.

Also be aware, that since you lived in Japan for more than 6 months, you are going to have to get Police Clearance from Japan. The rule is that you need Police Clearance for any country that you have lived more than 6 months in a stretch. No way around that.

There are a bunch of threads about Police Clearance from Japan and how to go about getting it.
