Japanese term or phrase: 本籍地電話照会済
The above phrase is a stamp in the category その他。 Could it mean "We have already checked by telephone with the local registrar's office"?

English translation:Phone reference was made to the registered domicile
Explanation:
Roughly speaking, yes you are correct, but this is what I came up with.
Wish there is more brief expression, but this is how I would translate.
There are several translations for 本籍地 to choose from. So choice is yours.

agree  Raitei: Yes. The Family Registration Law requires Japanese nationals to change their 本籍地 every time they move. Taking that into account, I laugh when I see translations written in stone by some ganko jiji like "domicile of birth."

agree  Tomoyuki Kono: Raitei san, you don't need to change your 本籍地 every time you move. Perhaps you had 住民票(住民基本台帳)in mind, which does need to be updated every time you move..
