UNHCR in Japan

What is UNHCR’s role in Japan?

The Government of Japan is a signatory to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol and has undertaken to adhere to the international standards in the protection of asylum-seekers and refugees. People applying for asylum in Japan are subject to the national laws and undergo the asylum procedures established by the Government of Japan.

Through the provision of policy and technical advice, UNHCR assists the Government and the Civil Societies in Japan with regard to the implementation of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.
