Concerning the Introduction of a Preferential Point System for Individuals with High-Level Ability

A preferential point system for individuals with high-level ability has been designed to be implemented within the present system for the reception of foreign nationals. The system is intended to encourage the reception of foreign nationals with high-level talent/qualities who can be expected to contribute to economic growth and the creation of new demand and employment. Foreign nationals whose points meet a certain score will be classified as “high-level ability foreign nationals”. This system is designed to provide preferential measures for these individuals in terms of managing entry to and exit from Japan. For more information, please see here
