Japan’s revised immigration law passes the House of Commons

A proposed overhaul of Japan’s immigration law that will allow the government to revoke an alien’s permanent resident status if the holder deliberately fails to pay taxes was approved by the House of Representatives on Tuesday.

The bill, which is expected to be debated in the Senate later this week, adds permanent residents who deliberately miss tax payments to an existing list of behaviors in immigration law that can be grounds for revocation of residency status.

The new clause is part of a broader overhaul of the immigration law, which also saw the technical training program for trainees replaced with a new system that allows such foreign workers to switch employers and stay in Japan for a longer period.
