This is a notification from the Immigration Services Agency of Japan.

In order that foreign workers such as technical interns who have been dismissed, etc. and are having difficulties with continuing their training due to the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) can be re-employed or continue employment, as a special measure for the time being, permission is being given for the “Designated Activities (Employment Permitted)” status of residence for a maximum of one year.

If you’ve been forced to quit the company and find it difficult to find another company, you can also find a job with national support.

Please see the leaflet for details.


For inquiries, please contact your local Immigration Services Agency or branch office. You can also use the telephone interpreter at the One Stop Center.
