Graduate Institute of Taiwan History
The Residence problems of Taiwanese in Japan after the World War II primarily derivative from Japan deprived their colony civil rights. After Taiwanese registered as oversea Chinese, they were treated as people from mainland China; not until 1952, they officially detached from Japan nationality. However, the historical background was different between Taiwanese in Japan and oversea Chinese, and so did the legal rights for residency. Both registered China as their nationality, but came with different applicable laws and regulations. Although Taiwanese could stay in Japan for long period of time, they had no legal protection on their rights of residence. In 1965, Japan and Korea established diplomatic relations, the two countries signed an agreement to grant the Korean Japanese permanent residence in Japan. This made it more obvious that the Taiwanese in Japan were discriminated by lacking the legal protection on their rights of residence. The organizations of oversea Taiwanese in Japan had once petition to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to ask the government to fight for their legal rights on their permanence in Japan, but in vain. In 1972, Taiwan and Japan broken off the diplomatic relations, many Taiwanese naturalized Japanese citizenship in the afraid of losing their legal status. Surrounded by the issue whether they can obtain permanent residence illustrated Taiwanese in Japan lack of decisive legal status, their national identity also varied widely. We should continue to pay attention on the future development of the legal status of Taiwanese in Japan together with their national identity.
