Support for users with a visual impairment
The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) is offering support to those with a visual impairment who wish to apply to the Volunteer Programme.
Tokyo 2020 began accepting applications for the Tokyo 2020 Games Volunteer Programme on 26 September 2018 and now the programme has been made easier for applicants with a visual impairment. The application deadline will be extended by about a month for those users, to allow for any delays and ensure they are not at a disadvantage.
