Cancellation of the test in 2020 (July) of the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT)

The Japan Foundation                                
Japan Educational Exchange and Services

We regret to announce that the test in 2020 (July) of JLPT is now cancelled at all testing sites, in Japan and overseas.
The worldwide spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) remains unpredictable.
JLPT is the worldwide large-scale test with over one million participants annually, requiring test takers and test proctors to stay in test venues over long hours.
Given such circumstances, we have determined that it would be extremely difficult to both secure the safety of examinees and others concerned and to administer the test in an appropriate manner.
We would very much appreciate your understanding.

*For further details about procedures regarding cancellation
Outside of Japan:
Please contact your local test administrator, ‘Host Institution’ (where you made/sent your registration.)

In Japan:
Please refer to the website of the JLPT Application Center, Japan Educational Exchanges and Services (JEES).

Test Dates

  • Second test: Sunday, December 1, 2024
