The Japanese government is currently suspending new entry from overseas. If you need two weeks of quarantine when the immigration ban is lifted in the future, NUFS will offer the Self-Isolation Plan for international exchange students who will study at NUFS. Exchange students must use this plan for their self-isolation after entering Japan, and then move into the NUFS dormitories. The information of the Self-isolation Plan will be provided to students in around June.

Please note that these dates are subject to change depending on the Japanese government policy and/or the situation of COVID-19.
