Disaster Victim Certificate / Disaster Victim Report Application

A Disaster Victim Certificate / Disaster Victim Report will be issued to those with a damaged house or building (apartment/company) resulting from the Tohoku Pacific Ocean Earthquake and the following tsunami. These documents are essential when applying for various disaster assistance services offered by the City of Sendai.

  • A Disaster Victim Certificate shows the degree of damage to houses and buildings and will be issued upon assessment.
  • A Disaster Victim Report shows that the applicant has filed a claim for damage to their house, building and personal property.
  • There are some disaster assistance services that only require a Disaster Victim Report and not a Disaster Victim Certificate. The Disaster Victim Report will be issued on the day of application. Please contact each organization that provides assistance services directly.

Note

Since the damage caused by the earthquake and tsunami was extensive, it may take some time to receive the Disaster Victim Certificate after submitting the application. We ask for your kind understanding on this matter. If you wish to start repairing the damage before an assessment inspector visits, please take pictures of the damage and keep them with a written estimate of repair costs or a detailed statement. You will be asked to provide them at a later date.

*Please take as many pictures as possible to show the damage of the house or building

Ex. Pictures of the entire house or building
Pictures focusing on the damaged areas of the house or building
Pictures showing the house or building on a lean
