How To Receive ¥100,000 From The Japanese Govt?
Q: Who is eligible to receive this money from the Japanese government?
A: Anyone who is on the basic resident register as of April 27 this year. That covers about 127 million people, including foreign nationals who have legally resided in the country for more than three months. Homeless people are also eligible, but they will have to become registered with a city or town. Be aware, you do need to send in an application form the details of which are given below.
Q: How do I apply to receive the money?
A: An application form will be mailed to everyone that is eligible to receive the payment. You can also apply online through the government website for My Number cardholders with details on that to be announced later. In-person applications will be limited to special cases in order to reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus. Whether the option to apply in English will be made available is still undecided. An official at the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications said this. The head of the household will be responsible for applying for everyone in the family, and the cash will be wired to his or her bank account as early as May this year.
