Apostille on Certificate of Acceptance(juri-shomei) in Japan

Certificate of Acceptance

Juri-Shomei, literally translated Certificate of Acceptance, is a formal document to attest a fact that "a notification was officially accepted by the head of local municipal government pursuant to Japanese laws".

Since Family Register is not created for non-Japanese national, Juri-Shomei of Birth Notification is often used as Birth Certificate for a foreign national to certify his/her birth in Japan. And, Juri-Shomei of Death Notification is used as Death Certificate to certify his/her death in Japan.

For married foreign couple, Juri-Shomei of Marriage Notification can be used as Marriage Certificate. And divorced foreign couple, Juri-Shomei of Divorce Notification can be used as Divorce Certificate. (If husband and/or wife is a Japanese national, koseki may be used as Marriage/Divorce certificate as well.)

Certificate of Acceptance/"Juri-Shomei" can be obtained at a municipal office where the notification was submitted.

*** Important *** Only a person who submitted a notification can apply for and obtain this certificate.
