🚀 HELP ME SHARE THE MESSAGE 🚀
I wanted to help and raise this issue, I can not do this alone so I met with some of the language school associations to discuss what we can do to lobby the government on behalf of all international students.
The response from the school representatives was that the government highly weighs the impact to those students who are most directly affected and so we created a form to help capture that information to be able to share with the government more easily. Some responses captured so far are in this article.
I know many people reading this have already been pushing for answers from the government but we would like to ask that as many of you as possible share your story and pass this on to friends too, in order to be able to supply the school representatives with as much helpful material as we can.
We ask if you are willing to share your story that you please fill the form here as soon as you can, so we can use the information to push for students to be able to enter Japan for the April term as soon as possible.
The form can be filled in your native language, English or Japanese. If you are an international student waiting to go to Japan, even if you didn’t use my company to apply for a school, you can enter here:
If you are not an international student, but you know someone who is please let them know about this initiative. If you want to support other international students, please share and like this article since the more people and awareness we get, the more powerful messages we can deliver to the Japanese government.
I hope I will see all of you in Japan soon.
