Japan Embarkation Cards

再入国許可

We reported earlier on the fact that there is now no need for re-entry permits in Japan after the new immigration rules came into force in July.

Now when foreign nationals with a valid Japan visa leave the country on business or pleasure they can return without the need to have an up-do-date re-entry permit in their passports.



The embarkation card for re-entrants that all foreigners wishing to return fill out before leaving Japan has changed slightly, however. There is now a little box, top left, which needs to be ticked if you are planning on returning. It reads: "Departure with Special Re-entry Permission."

Someone seems to have been given the job of hand-stamping them. Happy Re-entry.
