On the New Residency Management System for Foreigners

New Residency Management System started from July 9, 2012.

The previous alien registration system was abolished.

In the new system, a foreign resident receives a residence card and is registered on the Basic Resident Registration by his/her municipal government.

This is important change for foreign residents in Japan.
