This is the latest data provided by Tokyo immigration for its COE(certificate of eligibility) approval data.
|Apr.2015||Number of applicants||Approved||Rejected||Canceled||Approval rate|
What might surprise us the most from this data is the plummeting approval rate for Nepalese applicants. But if we take a look at the data over prior years, it may add up, because the number of approval hasn’t really changed. It’s stayed around 800.
As for Vietnam on the other hand, the number of approval soared to 5,477 from 3,186 in the previous year and it outnumbers China for the first time. Also its approval rate has been increasing year by year from 84.9% in 2013 and 89% in 2014 to 95.9% in 2015 along with the continuous increase in number of applicants. This is something very different from the natural result for Nepal.
China as always has a stable result in number and rate, slightly increasing though. Now we can see Bangladesh and Myanmar as the next comer since their number of applicants also soared by 50% from the previous year, yet we wish they understand the balance that Japan immigration could accept so that they wouldn’t result in a plummet in their approval rate.
