Ukrainian refugees who have taken refuge in Japan will be able to reside in the country on a long-term work visa, according to amendments to the immigration law that will come into force on December 1. This is reported by kyodonews.net.


It is noted that the new system is designed to provide a place of residence for people who have come from conflict zones and do not meet the criteria for refugee status.


It is important to note that Japan is a party to the 1951 UN Refugee Convention, which obliges countries to provide protection to those who have a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion and who do not wish to return to their country of origin.


Persons evacuated from Ukraine and other displaced persons do not meet these criteria.

The decision to allow them to stay in Japan was made at the discretion of the Minister of Justice.
