Japan’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Toshimitsu Motegi, explained at a press conference yesterday that Japan has not yet made a decision on whether new entrants will be permitted into Japan under the residence or business tracks after the current state of emergency is lifted and that the decision will be made based on the state of corona virus infections at the time.

Although Motegi provided no timeline, COE holders and sponsoring companies should expect the Japanese government to provide an update on the situation by early March and prior to March 7th, the stated end date for the current state of emergency.
