Foreign students enrolled in Japanese language schools in Japan are eligible for financial relief in the form of coronavirus emergency aid from the government.
The Japanese government confirmed that it will pay up to 200,000 yen to students who are unable to afford tuition due to financial losses from the coronavirus. Students whose income from part-time work has decreased by half or more will be eligible for a 100,000 yen payment. Those from households earning too little to pay local income tax will receive an additional 100,000 yen.
The coronavirus emergency aid will be available to some 430,000 students enrolled in universities, graduate schools, junior colleges and Japanese language schools. This includes foreign students.
In order to qualify, foreign students must fulfill the following criteria:
As of 26 May, 2020 Japan has lifted the country’s state of emergency for all its prefectures.
