That Could Make It a Bit Easier

November 19th, 2007

The new Japanese immigration requirement for all non-Japanese passport holders (except for generational foreigners) to be photographed and fingerprinted seems to have a slight amelioration: instead of having to use the crowded “foreign passports” line, there will be a special “re-entry permit holder” for those who live in Japan but don’t qualify for quick pass-through. Via Debito.org:


We’ll still have to go through the photograph/fingerprint nonsense, but–depending on how many booths they open up for us–the lines may not be so insufferably long.

Still, Sachi and I will be separated at the immigration lines, whereas before we could have gone through together.
