Japan’s entry restrictions will continue in June

Japan plans to prioritize business people and experts as it eases entry curbs.Scope of areas subject to relaxed restrictions will be expanded gradually.
The government has started considering easing the curbs in stages from this summer, first for people from such regions as the United States and Asia, after it fully lifted its state of emergency over the virus crisis Monday, government sources said Wednesday.
“We will ease the entry restrictions for people necessary for business operations, as well as experts, in the first stage, and then for foreign students,” Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi told a meeting of the Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defense in the Upper House on Tuesday.
