Visa overstayers decrease below 100,000

The Justice Ministry says the number of foreigners staying in Japan after their visas expire has fallen below 100,000 for the first time in 21 years.

The ministry says that as of January 1st this year, the number of illegal foreign residents stood at 91,778.

The figure is down about 21,000 from a year before, marking a fall for 17 consecutive years. It is only around one-third the figure for 1993, when the number of visa overstayers peaked at about 300,000.

By nationality, more than 21,000 illegal foreign residents are from South Korea as well as about 13,000 each from China and the Philippines.

Immigration officials attribute the decline in illegal foreign residents to stepped-up crackdowns on those who remain in Japan after their visas expire.

They say that the introduction of tighter immigration control in 2007, which basically obliges all foreigners entering Japan to have their fingerprints taken, has also been effective in reducing the number of violators.
