All national papers wrote that two Afghan employees at JICA in Kabul and their eight dependents arrived in Tokyo over the weekend, noting that they were granted short-term visas for up to 90 days. The GOJ will consider granting them “refugee” status or arranging for them to depart for a third country based on their wishes.   


Asahi added that representatives of international and Japanese NGOs involved in aid operations in Afghanistan met with a senior MOFA official on Monday and pressed for additional GOJ efforts to bring more of Japan’s approximately 500 Afghan allies to Japan.
