From December 1, 2023, the Immigration agency of Japan will provide new status to those Ukrainian refugees whose circumstances do not meet the requirements of permission for refugees. Previously, Japan could only provide refugees with protection but didn't permit them to work. Now, those who flee from military conflicts will have the status of a long-term resident and the possibility of obtaining a work visa. Japan Immigration services agency reports that as of the end of September, 2.091 Ukrainians lived in Japan, who escaped from the Russian war in Ukraine. We remind you that the active military aggression of Russia opened in 2014.
Recently, the Japanese foreign ministry Yoshimasa Hayashi visited Kyiv and discussed with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba Ukrainians and international cooperation for winning the war asap.
