|■ New Japanese Immigration Procedures|
Effective November 20, 2007, all foreign visitors to Japan must adhere to new entry requirements. Japanese immigration officials will photograph and fingerprint all visitors upon arrival.
You can learn more details about this issue by visiting the English site of the Immigration Bureau of Japan.
While the Embassy of Canada appreciates the concerns of Canadian citizens regarding this new requirement, please note that regulations concerning entry and residency of non-nationals are sovereign rights of states. If specific consular issues are raised, the Canadian Embassy will provide appropriate guidance.
All foreign nationals entering Japan will be subjected to the new provisions, apart from the following:
The holders of permanent residence status (Eijuken) are subject to this new regulation.
For more information, please contact the Immigration Bureau of Japan.
* Please note that “special permanent resident” (Tokubetsu Eijuken) status holders are non-Japanese nationals who have resided in Japan since prior to World War II (mostly long-term resident Korean nationals).
