Saturday’s Mainichi reported that Foreign Minister Motegi said at a Lower House Foreign Affairs Committee session on Friday that many foreign residents in Japan who temporarily returned to their home countries amid the new coronavirus pandemic have been unable to reenter Japan. Motegi reportedly added: “We are planning to permit the reentry of those who require humanitarian consideration.” The paper wrote that while Japan allows the reentry of special permanent residents, most of whom are from South and North Korea, foreign spouses of Japanese nationals, permanent residents and their spouses, and long-term residents have not been allowed to reenter in principle unless they have special circumstances.
