Question #208
Upgrading of Kosekitohon
My mother's father was Japanese but the mother was Filipina. She was a nisei and we are sanze who are currently residing in Japan. My mother died in 2013 unable to come to Japan. My brother and I came to Japan in 2006. After few years my husband and child followed and my brothers wife and children,too. But I had a sister who died in 1997 she was in our family tree when we applied in coming here. She had 2 children and they are 25 and 26 years old. I would like to know if you accept upgrading of kosekitohon so that adult children left in the Philippines will also be given an opportunity to come here. Thank you for your reply in this inquiry.
