Friday, 22 Sep, 2022 0

Japan will finally lift more of its Coviid border curbs next month.

From October11, it will allow, individual trips visa-free.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced the changes at UN General Assembly in New York.

On the same date, Japan will eliminate the daily arrivals cap, which is currently at 50,000.

“We will remove the cap on the number of people entering the country, and will resume accepting individual travel and visa-free travel,” Kishida said.

Japan currently only allows tourists on authorised group tours and all require visas.

Prior to the pandemic, Japan allowed visa-free travel for nationals of 68 countries and territories.

It over 30 million visitors annually before Coviid struck.
