Kind of, yes.

When you use your foreign agent, you get to carry out the action of an area. You may not choose the same area as your president though. So it will often be 2 different areas that you activate in a turn when you use a Foreign Agent.

What if I have 3 foreign agents? Do I get to use them separately? (E.g. 3 times in a round)

You may only activate 1 Foreign Agent per turn, but you can do it before or after the main action phase.

Note also that each Foreign Agent is a 1-shot, you use it once and then it's face down and cannot be used again.

We played Yokohama for the first time tonight, but read in rhe rules that you could activate a foreign agent once per turn. So we used them multiple times. I had read somewhere they were a 1-shot thing, but couldn't find it anymore. But I guess that was correct. I already thought using them each turn (and all of them, one person had 3) was too strong.

However, I have a question. When you use the mercenary, does it go back to supply and can another player get this same agent later on? This is especially interesting when it concerns the Dutch agent, because there is only one. Or is it so that once an agent is gone,h but e is gone, even when he is used?

You may only use 1 Agent per turn, and each agent is a 1-shot use.

Once used, turn the agent face down -- it can't be used again, but it does not go back to the supply.
