$24.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Inflows of foreign nationals to Japan in 2008 increased to 345 000 (excluding temporary visitors). The flows are about evenly split between labour, family and ancestry‐based migrants (persons of Japanese ancestry from Latin America). The inflow of foreign nationals for employment ‐ excluding trainees ‐ fell by 7.4% in 2008 to 72 000. The largest category of entry for employment was "entertainers" (35 000). While the number of foreign students granted a change of status for employment after graduation increased by 7% to 11 000, entry from abroad into the main employment categories declined.
