How to Apply for the COVID-19 Payment

On April 17, the Government of Japan announced that there will be a one-time payment of ¥100,000 to each resident in Japan, to help mitigate the economic hardships of living and working under the state of emergency. If you are a legal resident of Japan with a Residence Card (在留カード), you should be able to receive the payment.

If you have a My Number card, you can apply online, to speed up the process. The official website is only in Japanese, but there are guides to applying in English.

NHK Online News has published a useful set of FAQs in English, guiding you through the process. Check here for details.
