As of today, October 1, the declaration of a state of emergency in Japan has been lifted for the time being.
If the current situation continues, various restrictions on activities will be lifted in stages, although it will largely depend on the future infection situation.
Unfortunately, the restriction on the entry of new international students, which is our long-cherished wish, will not be lifted today.
On September 28, the Association for the Promotion of Japanese Language Education and other Japanese language school organizations submitted a request to Prime Minister Suga for a cleaner entry for foreign students.
As a result, we were able to elicit a statement that the government aims to resume the entry of foreign students as soon as possible.
In fact, the readiness to accept people from overseas has been re-established in the past few days.
As for the relaxation of the quarantine measures after entry into Japan due to vaccination, the policy seems to have been finalized in a very concrete manner, including the specific types of vaccines and what kind of exemptions are available.
It won’t be long before we will be able to meet all the international students who are waiting to enter Japan.
Now that the application for the January 2022 term is over, the application for the April 2022 term has begun in earnest.
The deadline for applications is scheduled for November 12, but there may be a second round of applications this year as well.
