Japan to Reopen to Leisure Travellers in MAY

Japan’s ban on leisure travellers appears to be lifting this month, reports TTG Asia, as its government announced plans to welcome a limited number of foreign group tours by the end of the month on a “trial basis.”

Under the new plan, all tourists must be part of packaged tours with fixed itineraries that must be submitted in advance so that their movements can be tracked and contact tracing measures can be used if needed. Travellers will also need to show proof of full vaccination with a booster shot. For the full three doses, Japan accepts Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax.

On 05MAY, Japan’s PM said the easing of the country’s border restrictions would be reviewed and carried out in stages, with further measures easing in JUN, with a goal to have relaxed international arrival measures “on par” with other G7 nations.
