From June to September, the Ministry of Education provided a total of 4.9 million yen (100,000 yen per student for 49 students) to the current students. In addition, Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) provided 400,000 yen (20,000 yen per student for 20 students) to the current students for the ” subsidized project for the measures of new coronavirus.

Thanks to the support from the government and administration, our students are able to move forward without giving up their studies.

From October 1, international students, where the infection situation is stable, will be allowed to enter Japan in order by submitting a “Residence Track”.

The Residence Track is a pledge made by the institute to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare regarding quarantine measures such as staying at home for 14 days, not using public transportation, and a 14-day health follow-up period.

As of October 28, the TIJ has accepted a new student from Taiwan. The students of Vietnam and China are starting to be issued visas. We are preparing for starting the new classes of the coming students.

 

We have also revised some of our guidelines with reference to the “Hygiene Management Manual for New Coronavirus Infections in Schools – A New Way of Life for Schools” (Version 4) issued by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. The new guidelines are as follows.

We will continue to review them as needed. We will continue to revise it as necessary, and will report on this information on our website.
