Changes to the Basic Resident Registration Law in Japan
With the soaring number of foreign nationals entering and residing in Japan each year, the establishment of a legal system by which municipalities can provide basic public services to both foreign and Japanese residents has become an urgent concern.
In order to address such concern, the law for partial amendments to the Basic Resident Registration Law was enacted in 2009.
This makes the Basic Resident Registration Law applicable to foreign residents and help improve their convenience and streamline municipalities' operations. This amendment has came into effect on July 9, 2012.
