Hi!

I was wondering what do I get refund after I left Japan. I have been working in Japanese Software Development Company for last 7 years as an “Engineer”. As I have been living in Japan for 10+ years. I am also thinking of applying for Permanent Residence soon.

Here’s a thing, whether I get PR or not… I am leaving Japan in couple of years and going back to homeland. Since I have been working as a salary-man for so many years, I have been paying lot of taxes, insurances, pension etc.

Do I get any amount back (refund or lump sum) if I left Japan permanently? I have also heard that once you got PR, nothing will be refund. Is it true? Person who is planning for going back his country, shouldn’t be applying for PR ????

Please, anyone who have a knowledge in this matter…Please REPLY !! Would be very grateful to you!
