Now, Japan is planning to reopen its borders once again

Published on : Thursday, December 10, 2020

Japan is all prepared to reopen its borders in 2021 to a restricted number of international tourists from lower-risk countries. This trial is hoped to boost up it’s worn out tourism sector before the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, as per The Asahi.


As restrictions have been made easy for international business travelers in recent months, leisure travelers are still not allowed to enter Japan in trepidation of further outbreaks. Foreign visitors in October have declined 99 per cent year-on-year, as per Japan’s tourism authority.


“We fear that we may not be able to hold the Olympics and Paralympics if the coronavirus spreads in Japan following the arrival of foreign tourists,” said a senior government official, according to The Asahi.


Small group tours from China and Taiwan may be allowed to visit the country, as part of the plan, without 14-day quarantine. Precautionary measures like private transport usage such as chartered buses, and temperature checks by tour operators are mandatory.


Also, the country may ask you to produce a proof of negative tests and travel insurance, prior to arrival, alongside detailed itineraries and use of contact tracing apps.
