Individual Number Card

Known as the My Number Card, your Individual Number Card serves as a form of photo identification with your assigned "My Number".

An Individual Number Card can be acquired free of charge by anyone who is a registered resident of Japan.

If at least six months have passed since the issuance date [許可年月日] on your residence card, your Individual Number Card will be accepted as a form of identification when applying to open an account.

In case you are not an Individual Number Card holder, your driver's license or health insurance card can also be accepted.

Points to Note:

Important

Please do not scan the back side of your Individual Number Card as it does not contain the information required (address and date of birth) for the application.
