We regret to inform you that the Japanese government has announced that entry into Japan by newly arriving foreign nationals, including international students, is suspended until December 31. Consequently, MEXT is suspending acceptance of screening applications and issuance of screening clearance certificates.
 To ensure screening procedures can be performed quickly once MEXT resumes them, we will continue to accept your online applications for permission to travel to Japan.
 We know that you were all looking forward to coming to Japan, and these new border control measures are a disappointment, but ask for your continued patience.
 We hope that we will be able to meet you all in Sendai in the near future.

December 6, 2021
Vice President (for Education Reform
Strategy and Global Engagement),
Global Learning Center Director
Masahiro Yamaguchi
