Information for NII internship students regarding COVID-19 virus

The Japanese government, as well as many other governments, has imposed restrictions on travel from the People's Republic of China in order to limit the spread of the novel COVID-19 virus. These restrictions are constantly under review, and are subject to change at any time.

Students should stay informed as to the travel restrictions imposed by the Japanese Government and the governments of their countries of residence. Here are some example links for information:
