Japan: Immigration Changes Favorable to Digital Nomads Forthcoming
May 19, 2023
The Japanese government announced plans to revamp its immigration framework to attract international remote workers, or 'digital nomads', as part of its strategy to become Asia's largest startup hub. Recognizing the increasing global competition for talent and innovation, Japan’s ministries and agencies are reviewing how to modify existing visa programs and residence statuses to make these more accommodating for digital nomads to live and work in the country. The move is aimed at promoting a dynamic startup ecosystem, enhancing cultural exchange and promoting economic growth. Fragomen is closely monitoring the situation and will report on further developments.
