5 TIMEFRAME MID-MAY: Start going through your apartment and decide what you want to take back, what are the things you want to sell, what to leave for your successor, and what you will discard. *Around the end of May, your successor will be notified of his/her general placement. JUNE: New JETs will be placed and you will start the contact process with them. It is a good time to sort out arrangements for payment of items to be sold, changeover of apartment, etc. If you are planning to ship items home, make arrangements NOW. Start sending items that will take longer to reach your destination, such as books and other surface mail. Please inform your landlord AT LEAST ONE MONTH IN ADVANCE of the day you will be leaving. If your successor is taking your apartment, make arrangements so that rent payments for July or August will be divided fairly. Start organizing bills and other finances for your supervisor s, or proxy s, reference. IF you are applying for an extension visa, start processing the paperwork you will need. Apply for the extension visa at least 2 weeks in advance of your visa expiration. JULY: Start writing thank you letters, making plans to meet the people that mean the most to you, and saying goodbyes. Organize to have your mail forwarded at the post office. Finalize details on who will serve as your proxy with bill payments and pension refunds. Leave your contact information with him or her. Inform utilities of your shutoff dates and arrange payment. Sunday, 24 th July 2016: Group A arrives in Tokyo. Sunday, 31 st July 2016: Group B arrives in Tokyo. If you are still here when your successor arrives, take care of things such as transferring your phone line, showing them around, handling payments for items you will sell, etc.
7 Departure Checklist Pay all your bills: Electricity Gas Water TV (NHK, CATV, Sky PerfecTV) Credit card Telephone (domestic and international) Mobile phone Internet Newspaper/ magazine subscriptions Rent/ apartment cleaning and repair costs Japanese taxes such as local inhabitants tax Cancel your bank account Pension Refund Tax refund on Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment Pay your bills: Electric, gas and water services can usually be disconnected on the day of departure with settlement of outstanding bills made on the same day. Contact your electricity, gas and companies in advance, to make sure your meters can be checked on your last day. Your internet and home telephone can be disconnected on a requested date, but payments cannot be made at that time. The monthly charges must be paid at your local service provider or from your bank account at a later date (be aware that telephone and internet charges are deducted the following month). If you are unable to pay beforehand and will be closing your bank account before you leave, apply to have a representative pay for you. If you are staying on in Japan it is often possible to have your internet account transferred to your new home. It is usually possible to cancel your mobile phone anytime up until the day you leave Japan by visiting any retail outlet of your mobile phone company. You will need to visit the store in person to cancel your mobile phone contract (cancellation procedures cannot be handled over the phone). Bring your Residence Card, passport, personal seal (inkan), and your mobile phone with you when doing so. Basic monthly fee and charges for optional services (including outgoing calls and messages on the day of cancellation) will be calculated at the store on a prorated basis.
9 *If you prefer to hold on to your phone until the last minute, depending on the service provider and contract type, it can be possible to cancel your contract and pay any fees at Narita Airport. The airport has shops for all three major cell phone dealers (Docomo, AU, Softbank). If you plan on cancelling your contract at the airport, please ring ahead and make sure it is possible beforehand! *Make sure all bills have been paid. If the bills do not arrive before you depart, leave sufficient funds for your supervisor to pay the bills on your behalf. Other things to do before departure: Budget for moving: Remember that your final pay-check may be less than the amount you normally receive. You should prepare enough money for moving. Forward your mail: If you will be staying in Japan after JET, all your mail and parcels can be forwarded to your new address for up to one year if you complete a change of address form at the post office. If you will not be staying in Japan, have your mail forwarded to the address of a friend or colleague. (See pg. 64) Contact your landlord or rental agency: Inform them of your date of departure in advance, and arrange for an apartment inspection. It is important to clean up your apartment after moving out your belongings. If the apartment is left untidy or has severe damages, deposit money might not be returned, and the landlords may even charge extra for cleaning costs. Please do not leave your apartment in disarray and be sure to dispose of all waste. Also, note that it may require several days to dispose of larger items, so plan ahead and allow for time to dispose of the larger items. Dispose of/sell your car and cancel your voluntary insurance. Obtain copies of all the forms you will need if you plan on claiming the pension refund, as well as filing forms for someone to be your tax representative to claim back tax subtracted from the refund. Make arrangements to ship any belongings back home or to your new address in Japan. Submit a notice of moving out (tenshutsu-todoke, 転 出 届 ) to your local municipal office. Please note that once you have submitted this you will become unable to apply for some forms required for other procedures(including selling your car), so make sure to do this last. Hand in your Residence card to immigration authorities when you leave Japan, or update your details at your local government office if you are staying in Japan.
11 Settle any outstanding Inhabitants Tax with your municipality prior to leaving. JETs who are liable for income taxes are also liable to pay Local Inhabitants Tax ( 住 民 税 ). However, the local inhabitant s taxes are calculated differently from most of other taxes - local inhabitant s tax start in January and ends in December each year. When JETs arrive in July/August, they are arriving part way through the tax year, and will be charged accordingly (5 months worth of tax for their first tax year). Inhabitant Tax CO s generally handle payment for your inhabitant taxes in one of three ways: -They will make monthly or quarterly payments for you. -They will include extra money in your gross monthly income, and you will be responsible for using this to pay your tax bill. -They will pay the money themselves in a lump sum when your tax bill comes. By far, the most common method is the second one. Generally JETs receive extra money in their salary and the inhabitants tax is taken out automatically each month, starting from June of the year following the JET s arrival in Japan, to pay for the tax from the previous year. However, because the payments lag one year behind, JETs are required to pay the outstanding amount in one go at the end of their contract, and it can be quite a large sum depending on your length of stay in Fukushima. You must clarify which method your CO is using and whether you are liable to make the payment, as you may find yourself liable for a large Local Inhabitants Tax bill and have no funds to pay it. ALTs from the USA and a few other countries do not have to pay this tax for the first 2 years they are here; however, starting from their 3 rd year, they will have to pay. CIRs from all countries have to pay this tax from their first year on JET. For example if you are a 3 rd year: JET year 1 (August 2013 August 2014) = Don t pay this tax straight away if you came from abroad. (Except CIRs) JET year 2 (August 2014 August 2015) = Pay for first year taxes (August of 2013 December of 2014 = 5 months worth of tax). You pay for your first year taxes during the time period of June 2014 June 2015, and since your first year taxes are only 5 months worth, it should cost only a few thousand yen per month.
13 JET year 3 (August 2015 August 2016) = Pay for 2 nd year taxes (January of 2014 December of 2014 = 12 months worth of tax). You pay for your second year taxes during the time period of June 2015 June 2016, and since your second tax year is actually a full tax year (from January 2014 December 2014), you will be paying a few man per month. Then, in June of the year you go home (in this example, 2016) you will start paying for your 3 rd year taxes (which were incurred during the time period January 2015 December 2015). You will have only paid a few months worth of this tax when you finish your contract in July/August, so you will still have quite a bit left to pay. **If you are returning home (or leaving Fukushima) you have to pay for the 3 rd year taxes (January 2015 December 2015) before you leave. The last 7 months of your 4 th tax year (January 2016 end of July 2016), are supposed to be paid also but since you cannot start paying this 4 th year tax until the year after it was incurred, which would be in June 2017, you can get away without having to pay this, because you won t be here then for them to bill you.
15 Likewise, if you are a 2 nd year: JET year 1 (August 2014 August 2015) = Don t pay this tax straight away if you came from abroad. (Except CIRs) JET year 2 (August 2015 August 2016) = Pay for first year taxes (August of 2014 December of 2014 = 5 months worth of tax). You pay for your first year taxes during the time period of June 2015 June 2016, and since your first year taxes are only 5 months worth, it should cost only a few thousand yen per month. **If you are returning home (or leaving Fukushima) you have to pay for the 2 nd year taxes (January 2015 December 2015, a full year worth of tax) before you leave. The last 7 months of your 3 rd tax year (January 2016 end of July 2016), are supposed to be paid also but since you cannot start paying this 3 rd year tax until the year after it was incurred, which would be in June 2017, you can get away without having to pay this, because you won t be here then for them to bill you. However, if you are a 1 st year: JET year 1 (August 2015 August 2016) = Don t pay this tax straight away if you came from abroad. (Except CIRs) You start paying for your first year taxes in June of 2016, for the period incurred the year before (August 2015 December 2015). It is only 5 months worth of taxes so the payments should be only a few thousand yen per month (because the payments are supposed to be made over a whole year from June 2016 to June 2017). However, you leave after paying only a few months of this first year tax, so you will be required to pay the rest in one go before you leave Fukushima. It should be a few man.
17 **If you are returning home (or leaving Fukushima) you have to pay for the 1 st year taxes (5 months worth of tax) incurred during the time period when you arrived in Fukushima in August 2015 until the end of the local inhabitants tax year in December You will have started paying for this in June 2016, but will have paid only a few months worth before you need to leave the outstanding amount will still need to be paid. The second tax year which started in January 2016 and goes until you finish your contract in July/August 2016 (7 months worth of tax), should technically also be paid. However, since this tax can only start being paid the year after it was incurred, in this example that would mean in June You can get away without paying it because you won t be here for them to start billing you. It is very important you understand this process, please confirm with your supervisor first, if you still are unsure ask either PA. National Health Insurance Your National Health Insurance coverage ends on the last day of your contract. Your medical card must be returned to your CO on completion of your contract. JET Accident Insurance Policy Your JET Accident Insurance covers you until the day you arrive back in your home country, or until August 31 st, whichever comes first. You will need to make your own arrangements after this date if you want personal insurance when you return to your own country.
19 Pension Refund Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment All participants on the JET Programme pay into Japanese Pension Insurance. Payment into this system is mandatory for all people working in Japan, and is deducted from your monthly salary. The Pension Reform Bill, which was promulgated on November 9, 1984, allows a foreign national who has been paying Pension Insurance, and who gives up residence in Japan, to apply for a Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment (pension refund). In order to be eligible for the Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment, you must fulfill all of the following conditions: Apply within two years of leaving Japan Not possess Japanese citizenship Have paid Employee s Pension Insurance premiums for six months or more Not have a place of residence in Japan ( You must submit a notice of moving out (tenshutsu-todoke, 転 出 届 ) to your local municipal office or you may not be registered as having left the country, and they will not be able to process your claim.) Never qualified for pension benefits (including Disability Allowance) Filing for the Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment and the tax refund associated with it is a 7-step process, as outlined below: 1. Before leaving, get the necessary forms from the Japan Pension Service Office or the National Pension Section of your city hall, and designate a tax agent or find the form online at Japan Pension Service website. 2. After leaving Japan, mail necessary forms to the Japan Pension Service to claim a refund 3. Receive Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment into overseas bank account 4. Mail notice of refund to tax agent (NOT to your school nor BOE!) in Japan within 2 years 5. Tax agent files for refund of tax on Lump-sum Withdrawal 6. Tax agent receives tax refund 7. Tax agent transfers the money to you
21 How much money do I get? The Japan Pension Service will calculate your pension refund taking into account how long you ve paid into the system and by using specially calculated rates. Unfortunately, the pension refund is always calculated in 6 month intervals. Even if you have paid 11 months into the pension, the amount refunded will be calculated on the 6 month rate. Take a look at the rates and amounts refunded below (the rates and amount refunded change depending on when you ve been paying into the pension *remember this is a guide only! check your GIH for more information). Process for Filing for Lump Sum Withdrawal(2016 GIH pg. 163) Before leaving Japan, obtain the form Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment Arbitration Bill (dattai ichijikin saitei seikyu-sho) from the Japan Pension Service Office (nenkin jimusho) or the National Pension Section of the municipal office nearest you, or download the form from in PDF format.

You MUST attach the following items to your claim form: 1. A copy of your passport (the page(s) showing your status of residence and the date of your final departure from Japan, as well as the page(s) showing your name, date of birth, nationality, and signature). 2. If your claim form is not stamped with a certified bank stamp, a document (a copy of your bank statement, bank passbook, etc.) which verifies your bank s name, branch office name, branch address, bank account number, and the full name of the account holder (must be your name) must be attached.

Note: The claim form allows for four different types of pension numbers, but ALL JET Programme participants need only supply the Basic Pension Number. The other three types of pension numbers can be left blank. Please send the claim form, along with the accompanying documents to: Japan Pension Service Takaido nishi Suginami ku, Tokyo JAPAN If granted, the Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment will be deposited directly into your bank account overseas.

25 Tax Refund on Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment (Please also refer to GIH 2016 P165) GIH 2016 Link: Your Lump-sum Withdrawal payment is automatically taxed 20% whether or not you pay Japanese taxes. You are also able to claim this entire amount back separately from the pension refund. Procedure to apply for the Tax Refund 1. Designate a person to file your tax paperwork. Before leaving Japan, obtain a copy of the document called Notification of Tax Agent (nouzeikanrinin no todokesho gaikokujin you) from any tax office branch. Submit the form to the tax office with jurisdiction over the address where you last lived before departure from Japan, to designate your tax agent. When designating a tax agent, find someone you trust (a colleague, friend, etc.) with financial matters and whom you can easily correspond with once you return to your home country. A tax agent must be a resident of Japan, but does not have to be Japanese. If you leave Japan without filing the Notification of Tax Agent you can file it when making your claim for a tax refund. Keep in mind that asking someone to be your tax agent places a burden on them and nobody, including anyone at your contracting organization, is obliged to do so. 2. File for the Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment After leaving Japan, file for the Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment. Once you have received the payment from the Japan Pension Office, make a copy for your records and then send the original copy of the Notice on Payment of the Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment (Entitlement) (dattai ichijikin shikyu kettei tsuchisho) to your tax agent, which is sent to you with remittance of the Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment. 3. Designate a bank account and file for the tax refund Have your tax agent go to the same tax office as in Step 1 above and file an Income Tax Return (kakutei shinkokusho) on your behalf. The refund will be deposited into the bank account your tax agent designates in Japan. Once received, have your tax agent transfer the refunded amount to your own bank account. You may file for the tax refund as soon as you receive your Notice on Payment of the Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment (Dattai ichijikin shikyu kettei tsuchisho). You do not need to wait until January 1 of the following year in order to file for this refund, as you would with other tax refunds.
27 Some Important Things to Keep in Mind: Tax refund applications must be made within 5 years of leaving Japan. All JET participants, whether they pay Japanese taxes or not, will be subject to the 20% taxation on their Lump-sum Withdrawal Payment. The refund can take up to 3 6 months to process (provided the application was in order). Any further enquiries must be directed to the designated tax office where you were a resident in Japan. Please note that JET participants must personally pursue their specific case with their Contracting Organization and local tax authorities.

Contact your nearest Social Insurance Agency and double check! Return Airfare JET participants are eligible to receive a travel allowance for passage back to their home countries provided that they fulfill the three conditions below: 1. The participant has completed the JET contract period. 2. That within one month after completion of the period of the contract, the participant does not enter into a subsequent contract with the contracting organization or a third party. 3. The participant leaves Japan to return home within one month of the end of the contract. JET participants who fulfill these conditions can receive a single one-way economy-class ticket from Japan that is as direct as possible to your home country designated airport from which the JET departed. The following conditions apply to the ticket; In principle, the ticket should be for a direct flight. If a direct flight is not available, a ticket requiring the smallest number of transfers should be provided. In such circumstances, the travelling time should not be unreasonably longer than a direct flight. In the event that the JET unavoidably has to cancel the reservation (due to an unforeseen accident or illness), the Contracting Organization is to provide a ticket for another flight. The Contracting Organization may select the type of ticket to be provided and may also select whether to provide an actual ticket or the equivalent in a sum of money.
31 From Contracting Organization to the international airport in Japan? Your Contracting Organization is also responsible for your passage from your Contracting Organization to the international airport from where you will depart. Hence, they may not want you to stay longer in Japan since they will be liable if anything happens to you. Also, CLAIR rules state that the return travel has to be as direct as possible and with the smallest number of transfers. Where transfers are unavoidable, you must take the soonest available flight to your destination. Policies of Contracting Organizations: Your Contracting Organization will make the decision as to whether they will issue an airline ticket or cash. Each CO differs in their policies so please talk to your supervisor. If your Contracting Organization is providing you with cash, keep in mind that you may have to make the travel arrangements on your own. You may have to pay with your own money, and be reimbursed later. Alternatively, they may organize everything themselves for a departure date that you have selected. Discuss with your supervisor about the procedure that you are expected to follow! Do NOT purchase any tickets until you have your Contracting Organization s approval.

Make sure you are not caught out at the airport! If you stay in Japan for over one month from the day your contract ends, your Contracting Organization does not have to pay for your flight home. If you try to leave the country after your visa has expired then you will be classed as an illegal alien and a possibility of you being detained and interrogated at the airport. This means that you will need to pay for your own flight home when you are deported and you may not be allowed to come back to Japan.
33 If you stay in Japan, you must update your Residence Card to show your current visa, employment and address within 14 days of any charges. Which situation applies to you? Visa expires before your contract ends Up to 2 months before your Instructor Visa expires, you can apply for an Extension of Period of Stay. This generally extends the visa from 6 months to one year. Visa expires on the same day your contract ends Up to 2 weeks before your Instructor Visa expires, you must apply for a Temporary Visa to begin from the day after your current visa expires. See below for information on Temporary Visas. Visa expires after your contract ends but before you leave Japan Up to 2 weeks before your Instructor Visa expires, you must apply for a Temporary Visa to begin from the day after your current visa expires. See below for information on Temporary Visas. Visa continues after contract expires and you stay in Japan If your visa is not set to expire when you finish JET (i.e. you have a 3-year visa but only did 1 or 2 years of JET) then you can stay for up to 90 days for the purpose of sightseeing (you are not allowed to work) after your contract finishes WITHOUT CHANGING YOUR VISA. If you stay beyond the 90 day period, then even though your JET visa stamp says that it will cover you for longer, it does not actually do so because it only applies if you are still working in a job that is covered under that specific visa, so that whole illegal alien issue may happen as outlined above when you get to the airport. Visa continues after contract expires and you stay in Japan to work Working on your current visa status is ILLEGAL as it is outside your contract for which the visa is given. Unless your new contract is in the same field of Instructor Status, AND you have the same employers, you MUST apply for a Change of Status of Residence. *ECC English Teachers require a Specialist in Humanities status on their visa. *Students require Student Status for which you need a certificate from the university or school in which you are enrolled.
35 Temporary Visa If your current visa is set to expire but you want to stay in Japan for a bit longer, and if your contracting organization is fine with that then you can apply for a Temporary Visitor Visa. Applications must be made before your current visa expires. The temporary visitor visa can be issued in one day and is valid for either 90 days or 15 days. You must apply for the Temporary Visa whether you wish to reside in Japan for only one extra day of the entire 90 days or you may be subject to punishment or deportation under Japanese immigration laws. For applications you need the following: Application form for Change of Status of Residence to Temporary Visa. Reasons for requesting a Change of Status (explanation of reasons for staying in Japan, including an itinerary, prepared by JET). Letter supporting your travel itinerary and stating the ending date of your contract and your intended date of departure (it is recommended that your CO produces these). Others: A copy of the airline ticket for passage out of Japan, or alternatively, a copy of confirmed reservation on a flight out of Japan. The JET must also be able to show that they have sufficient funds for travel and living in Japan until their final date of departure. Valid passport and Residence Card/Alien Registration Card 4,000 revenue stamp from the post office Extension of Period of Stay You can also get an Extension Visa if you want to stay just a bit longer after you finish your job duties. The Extension of Period of Stay visa covers you for only 15 days after your current visa expires. The extension of period of stay can usually be granted on the same day, but you can apply for it up to 2 months prior to the end of the current period of stay. The Immigration Office can deny you this visa so you must have a valid reason for the extension. Furthermore, you shouldn t be applying for this visa until a week before your current one expires as it will negate your work visa. Some valid reasons might include: You have too much to pack in a short period of time. You are taking a cultural exam or other tests that cannot be taken outside of Japan. You have unexpected or unfinished business that needs to be completed.
37 Your office has asked to stay on to help train your successor. For applications you need: Application form to extend the period of stay Terms and Conditions (Documentation that clearly shows conditions such as work content, length of contract and remuneration) Statement of earning and proof of tax payment while you were on JET A plane ticket showing your date of departure A valid passport and Residence Card/Alien Registration Card 4,000 revenue stamp from the post office Although the visa can be processed in one day, it may take longer if the office is busy and you may have to return on another day to pick up your passport.

Change of Status of Residence For applications you need: Application for Change of Status of Residence Curriculum Vitae or Resume Terms and Conditions (Documentation that clearly shows conditions such as work content, length of contract and remuneration) Statement of earning and proof of tax payment of the JET A copy of the company s registration, loss and profit statement, (and a brochure).
