Japan opening to tourists from four countries

Tuesday, May 17, 2022 0

Japan’s reopening trial project will welcome small groups of tourists from the US, Australia, Thailand and Singapore this month.

It is available to package tours with set activities managed by Japanese tour agencies.

All travellers must be triple-vaccinated and the set itineraries will be fully supervised, Japan Tourism Agency said.

Subject to a successful trial, Japan hopes to relax entry restrictions in June and is mulling doubling the daily arrivals limit to 20,000.

“This venture will allow us to verify compliance and emergency responses for infection prevention and formulate guidelines for travel agencies and accommodation operators,” a government statement said.

The trial could start next week and continue until the end of May.
