Japan will waive pre-departure Covid-19 checks for vaccinated travellers to the nation, however each day caps on entrants will stay in place, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida mentioned on Wednesday (Aug 24).
The requirement for checks will likely be lifted from Sept 7, Mr Kishida mentioned. No choice has been made but on a reported plan to boost a each day cap on inbound travellers from 20,000 to 50,000, he added.
“We will continue relaxing these measures gradually,” mentioned Mr Kishida, who addressed reporters on-line as he’s recuperating from Covid-19 at his official residence.
Japan has maintained a number of the strictest pandemic border measures amongst main economies, requiring travellers to current a damaging coronavirus check taken inside 72 hours of departure.
Japan’s border is at the moment solely open for these with Japanese nationality, in addition to long-term and pre-issued tourism visas. Tokyo stopped their visa waivers for relevant passports through the pandemic.
