The Ministry of Justice in Japan has announced that it will now be easier for the overseas workers to avail the Japan PR. This is in keeping up with the efforts of the Japanese government to attract overseas talents to arrive at the nation and accentuate the growth of its economy.
The liberalized and easier framework for the Japan PR has been made effective from March 2017. It will permit eligible overseas immigrant workers to avail the Japan PR within 12 months of arriving at the nation.
This easier processing of Permanent Residency visa of Japan is available for highly skilled overseas professionals and they must have secured a minimum of seventy points in the scorecard of Japan’s Immigration Ministry, as quoted by the Independent Co UK.
As per the existing immigration framework in Japan, overseas immigrants must have resided in the nation for at least five years prior to applying for the PR status. The revised and easier PR visa regime reduces this period for just 3 years for overseas immigrant workers with a score of above seventy points and to mere 12 months for those with scores of more than eighty points.
The points on the scorecard of the Japan’s Immigration Ministry are allocated based on diverse factors such as annual salary, educational credentials, and work experience.
These improvements are being made by Japan to its Permanent Residency even as the lobby group in Japan has revealed that more than one million EU residents are threatened with deportation from the UK if there is no alternative simplified mode of authorizing their stay in the nation.
