Foreign nationals need some sort of visa to live in Japan. Here, we use the word “visa” to include the meaning of “residence eligibility status”. The Immigration Law provides for 27 types of visas. Although exceptions exist, most foreign nationals living in Japan have one of the 27 visas set down in the Immigration Law.
