February 19, 2021 Joint Statement on the Easing of Re-Entry Restrictions on Foreign Residents in Japan
The EBC, together with the ACCJ, the BCCJ and the CCCJ, has issued a joint statement on the lifting of the re-entry restriction for non-Japanese residents and the current entry restrictions for non-residents. The statement gives praise to the Japanese Government for allowing non-Japanese residents to re-enter Japan under the same conditions as Japanese citizens.
At the same time, the statement also points out that Japan should re-start issuing visas to essential personnel when the State of Emergency is lifted. This is vital not only for foreign companies, but also for Japanese companies, and even more so for the Japanese economy.
