NHK took up remarks made at the Diet today by Justice Minister Furukawa, who said the government is considering the feasibility of Japan hosting Ukrainian refugees from a humanitarian standpoint. An unnamed MOFA official separately said that if such refugees are admitted, they would not be included in the 5,000 travelers eligible to arrive per day. They might also be allowed to board Japan-bound flights without visas or undergoing pre-departure COVID-19 testing.
