Depositions in Japan in the Wake of the PandemicA very slow recovery, with restrictions still in place

(Updated October 18, 2023)

Although the government's positions and recommendations here in Japan sound like we are out of the pandemic, there are still activities that are hampered by restrictions of various types. That said, it is now possible to take depositions from the US Embassy in Tokyo and the US Consulate in Osaka. The logistics hurdles to conducting depositions online from those venues remain high. We suggest that you check the US Embassy website directly, as things appear to be in flux.
