The Japanese government has announced that this year it will begin accepting Syrian refugees to the country as exchange students, allowing them to bring along their spouses and children, taking in a total of 300 refugees over a five-year span. In addition to providing them with an allowance for living expenses, the refugee families will also be given the opportunity to settle in the country at the end of their term as exchange students.
Using the Japan International Cooperation Agency’s (JICA) technical cooperation organization, 20 exchange students per year will be accepted from Syrian refugees who escaped to Jordan and Lebanon. Based on the average Syrian family structure, JICA expects the total number of refugees entering Japan over the next five years to be 300 people. The first 20 students and their families are scheduled to arrive this summer.
