With only 228 foreigners allowed to enter Japan last November, the travel ban in Japan continues to affect thousands of international students.
Other stuck students have no choice but to sit in on classes that are held in separate time zones.
- Thousands of international students are still affected by Japan’s travel ban.
- Other stranded students have no choice except to attend classes held in different time zones.
- The ban is expected to have an impact on the participation of foreign universities in exchange programs in Japan.
According to a report in The Japan Times last month, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida stated that the country’s travel restrictions would be extended at least until early this year.
It is anticipated that the ban will have an effect on the participation of foreign universities in exchange programs in Japan.
An official from the Ministry of Education’s exchange program said that under these circumstances, they cannot just let in exchange students.
Despite the fact that several institutions throughout the world have resumed exchange programs, Japan is the only G7 country that has implemented a complete travel restriction.
Many international students are currently upset by Japan’s immigration ban, which has kept them out of the country.
According to reports, the country’s border shutdown will have a long-term impact on Japanese businesses, particularly their ability to attract and hire global talent.
As a result of Japan’s travel prohibition, colleges around the world have ceased sending students there.
Many stranded students have been aggressively appealing to the government to let them in, as the number of international students in Japan has been steadily declining.
