You are a true hero my friend! Do you think it is possible for international students to get VISA and enter Japan the next year? Hopefully sooner or later but the Japanese government should act ASAP and let students into Japan that are planning to stay there long term. To let Olympic athletes into Japan before international students sounds like a failed government to me
I wouldn't expect anything until October or 2022. I have already started online school which isn't a good experience (progression is dampened as you are not immersed in the environment)
Their COVID strategy ("State of emergencies") is more about persuasion and not mandatory restrictions. So expect to see 4th, 5th and 6th waves until their vaccine rollout is complete (maybe end of the year best case scenario).
I hope everyone is managing their expectations, hope for the best but plan for the worse case scenario.
I am nandhini from India. I have to enter Japan by October 2020 as an international student. But due to Covid unable to enter. My doubt is "There is some talk like MEXT students can enter Japan at end of September 2021". If Japan opens for students, where they will allow all students other than mext? And also they will allow Indians because suitutation is worst? In any special exception for students alone in this situation because at that time it will be more than a year.
Please consider and provide some suggestions sir.
So not all students are banned, right? Have Chinese and Korean students been able to enter? I thought no students were allowed. This makes Japanese government's decision even harder to understand. It's not fair! It's not our fault that covid situation is not yet under control in our countries. We all have the same rights. I am very disappointed with Japan. Not to mention the Olympics they insist on carrying out this event in the middle of a pandemic. Have I been studying 3 hours a day after a long working day for the past years and passed JLPT N2 for nothing?
Thank you Mr. Rossi,
My wife and I are currently working with GoGoNihon, we're applying to attend a Japanese language school starting in October of 2021. It's been a very positive experience for us so far, we're currently waiting to hear if our chosen school will accept us as students. Once accepted, we will wait for Japan Immigration to grant us the COE for a Student Visa and allow us into Japan. Best of luck to all students who wish to realize their dream of studying (and working) in Japan. We remain positive and optimistic, we've even put a deposit on an apartment. Best, Jeff
Surely there's more to persuading the govt than just through the Japanese media. The Heads of universities surely have some clout with the Education ministry who can talk with their ministerial counterparts on proper measures to take to ensure researchers, scholars and students undertake stringent border controls to safeguard public health. I'd be interested to know if Deans and school heads have started any such discussions. Thank you very much for your efforts.
