However, in the case where it is difficult to file an application for the extension of the validation period of a residence card during the following application period due to a long-term medical treatment, a long-term overseas business trip, or other unavoidable reasons, the relevant person may file an application for the extension of the validation period of his/her residence card prior to the application period.

(a) A person for whom the validation period of the residence card is to expire on his/her 16th birthday; From six months before his/her 16th birthday to the said birthday

(b) A permanent resident (excluding a person falling under a. above): From two months before the expiration date to the said expiration date (Note) When a mid- to long term resident’s birthday is February 29, his/her birthday shall be deemed to be February 28 in years other than leap years.
