The Honolulu-based Japanese consul for Hawaii will be on Kauai today to assist Japanese nationals who live on the island.
The consulate is holding the special Kauai day to serve Japanese nationals who live on the island, and to create a database of names so the consulate can quickly contact the individuals in case of an emergency.
The consul is scheduled to be in the Midori Room of the Radisson Kauai Beach Resort from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Japanese citizens who have been living in Hawaii for over three months are required by their government to submit a “zairyu todoke,” or residency survey, to their consulate. The list may also be used as a database for an Internet mail magazine service in the future.
Overseas voter registration, or “zaigai senkyonin meibo touroku,” is also set to be available at the special day on Kauai. Japanese nationals who have lived overseas for over three months, and who are over 20 years of age are eligible to register to vote in Japanese elections as overseas voters. Some may be ineligible if their “jyumihyo,” or residency, is still in Japan.
Japanese passport renewals, local address registration and consultation also are to be available.
