Japanese Language Student can not enter Japan

Today I interview Hana, a Japanese language student who has quit her job in January, planning to go to Japan and have been living on her saving since. She is asking the government about when it will be possible for her to enter the country. If she can not enter this October, Hana, together with many other students and workers, will have to quit her dream to study in Japan.


International students are willing to self-isolate during their quarantine, take PCR tests before and after arriving to Japan and follow all the necessary procedures to avoid the spread of the virus, but because of the Japan entry and travel ban they still don’t know when they can enter Japan.
