Hello again.

First of all, thanks to everyone who commented on my last entry :)
I'm about to fill out the application form for the JLPT in Japan, but have 2 questions:

1. "Region code": Nowhere in the application guide they tell you what this is about. Do they want me to choose my original home country or where I live now?
2. Name (as printed in passport): I'm not sure whether they want my last name first or not. On my gaijincard my last name is printed first as is normal in Japan, but in my passport my last and first name are not printed in one line, so you can put it either way, I guess. So what's the correct order for the application form in Japan? :(

Sorry to bother you again and thank you very much in advance! :)

On your application there should also be an explanation how to fill everything out including a list of countries/regions so you can fill this in. So check the rest of the application material.

That's what I'm saying! They didn't give any information about it! Just the codes itself, but not what exactly they are for. Only "region codes", but not if they mean the "region" you were born in (the region in your passport) or the "region" where you live now!!
It's not written ANYWHERE!! I read that stupid application form carefully 3 times :( I also googled like crazy. Nothing!

Somebody said they used Japan and never had any problems with it, so I guess that's what I'll do, too, then O_O;; ...

As they know where you take the test i.e. Japan I would have personally given my hope country. But as you currently do live in Japan and it's given as option I'd say it doesn't matter. Either should be fine.

I thought you didn't have the explanation with the codes listed and where therefore wondering if your region code is your postal code...

I called them yesterday and they told me the region code is about your "nationality" (and that my first name should go first) :)
Problem solved :)
