Yomiuri wrote that as part of its measures to ease COVID-19 border controls, the GOJ is studying a plan to accept all international students hoping to enter Japan by the end of May. Prime Minister Kishida has announced a plan to raise the cap on arrivals from foreign countries to 7,000 from the current 5,000 per day starting on May 14 and accept 1,000 international students per day under a separate quota. According to the paper, the government estimates that it will be able to accept a total of 10,000 students per week by allowing a total of 8,000 to enter from Monday through Thursday and 2,000 on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Based on this calculation, the government expects to accept as many as 100,000 foreign students in about 10 weeks from mid-March to the end of May.
