As all countries want, gaining back the points they lost in the economic world during the COVID-19 pandemic is now a high priority. Closed borders (ground, sea, and air) have cost severe damages to all aspects of the financial life which supports anyone and goes beyond and takes care of the foundations of a country.
Staying indoors might have led the health and safety of nations to an immune place but, as science still has a long way to go, trying to keep people inside is becoming a really hard task.
In addition to all this, we have had news that the countries which had their economy depended on international tourism, are negotiating to re-open their borders.
Japan, not wanting to stay back, is now willing to take some steps to re-open its borders to international guests. This cultural-based country has formed a three-phase program that will finally see a return to tourism.
Carefully approaching this task, the government is deeply considering it for the tourism industry. However, according to Nikkei in this month, Japan is beginning to ease restrictions on visitors but not to tourists.
The instructions are to allow 1,000 visitors into the country per day but only those who have permission to stay in Japan for more than three months are able to enter, and they must quarantine for two weeks. Plus, a negative COVID-19 test will be required.
The mentioned instructions follow the previous lifting of domestic travel restrictions, which were eased in May and offered a subsidy program to residents that provided deep discounts on travel within Japan.
As Japan is starting to reopen to more countries, more countries will also allow Japanese travelers to travel beyond their borders. At this time, the fact is that there are 159 countries on Japan’s no-entry list, and vice versa more than 100 countries have banned Japanese travelers.
