New Immigration Procedures

In 2006 the Ministry of Justice submitted a bill to the ordinary session of the Diet to make amendments to the Immigration Control Act. The bill was enacted and new immigration procedures came into effect November 2007.

The new procedures are to help facilitate the prevention of terrorist attacks. They also aim to make Japan a safe place to live for Japanese and non-Japanese visitors and residents alike. For further information on the new procedures please click on the following link: New Entry Procedures
