Relocation of Fukuoka Regional Immigration Bureau

Hello JETs! It’s gotten really windy and cold lately so I hope you are all staying warm.

For some of you who are turning into fourth or fifth year JETs, you will have to renew your period of stay. You can do so as early as up to 3 months before it expires, and we highly recommend you to not delay doing so.

You will need to renew your period of stay at the Fukuoka Regional Immigration Bureau Office. It was originally located in the Fukuoka Airport but has relocated to the following address on December 19, 2016:

New address:
Fukuoka Legal Affairs Government Complex
No. 1 3-5-25 Maizuru, Chuo-ku, Fukuoka
New telephone no. : 092-717-5420

For more information on opening hours and such please see here.

Happy New Year!

Happy 2017 Fukuoka JETs! We hope you had plenty of time to rest and replenish yourself over the holiday and are ready to start work in the new year.

The beginning of this year may be a season of preparation for transition and change, especially for those of you who are finishing your term on the programme this year. There will be two JET Programme Career Fairs, one in Osaka and one in Yokohama for the Greater Tokyo Area (click here for event details).

The registration deadline for these events is Friday, 20 January 2017. For more information, please refer to the JET Programme website and the email to you by CLAIR.
