Permanent and long term, quite the same in meaning but actually they are entirely different in terms of visa.

One you get your Permanent Resident status here, there will be no restrictions regarding employment or period of your stay here and there is no need change your nationality. It would be possible for you to lead a stable life here in Japan legally. It has also some advantages in daily life. For example, you are eligible now to apply for housing loan. Because lots of bank here, before they give some loan to some foreigner, that foreigner must be in Permanent Resident.

"Permanent Resident" status is only granted when a foreigner has established a permanent base of livelihood and when it is deemed that his/her stay here in Japan will benefit the Japanese society or the national interest of Japan. He/She must be in good conduct and posses sufficient means or skills to make and independent living here in Japan.

However, approval for this application is not that easy as it is in the discretion of Ministry of Justice. A considerable length of stay is required, because one of the most important factors for approval is whether or not the applicant has been fully integrated to Japanese society. Application should be made in person with the following documents listed below:

(1) Application for Permanent Residence
(2) Proof that the applicant's behavior and conduct is good
(3) Documents that will show that the applicant can live independently
(4) Health Certificate
(5) Letter of Guarantee
(6) Documents certifying family relations if any
(7) Passport
(angel4 Alien Registration Card

On the other hand, in "Long Term Resident" status, the Ministry of Justice only grant a period of stay 3 years, 1 year or 6 months after due consideration of the special circumstances invloved. Though there is a need to apply for extension of your stay here before its duration period, there will also be no restrictions concerning to activities just like the permanent residency.

my advise to you is to apply for permanent residency. kung hindi pa rin sya valid or hindi pumasa base don sa mga papers na ipinasa nya, then the immigration personnel itself will be the one who will give her kung anong visa ang nararapat sa kanya. mas better pa nga sometimes kung hindi mo nilalagay kung anong visa ang gusto mo. 1 year ba or 3 years. now kung hindi nya iaapply ng permanent residency yan, there is no way na makakakuha sya non. so better to apply for it.

goodluck!  wave1
