The Cancellation of the IATSS Forum Fall Batch (September to November 2020)
We regret to announce that the 63rd IATSS Forum, scheduled from September to November 2020, has been canceled for the following reasons.
According to the Immigration Services Agency, currently foreign nationals from certain countries including India, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, and Malaysia are subject to denial of landing.
Under the current measures by the Japanese government, any individual who lands in Japan, regardless of nationality, must undergo a 14-day period of self-isolation.
Upon the completion of the program in Japan, there is a risk of traveling restrictions back to respective countries from Japan, such as refusal of aircraft landings, denial of landing, facility quarantines and so on.
There is always the possibility of another wave of COVID-19 outbreak in Japan, under the current circumstance.
