Japan govt to waive tourist visa requirements as part of border easing — FNN


TOKYO — As part of a further loosening of border controls implemented to curb the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Japanese government intends to abolish tourist visa requirements from select countries, Fuji News Network said on Monday.
According to FNN, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida might make a decision this week over the loosening, which would also permit independent visitors to visit Japan without making reservations through travel agencies. Prior to the epidemic, 68 nations and areas did not require tourist visas for Japan.
By October, the government might lift its daily arrivals restriction, the Nikkei newspaper said on Sunday.

On a television program on Sunday, Seiji Kihara, the deputy chief cabinet secretary, stated that “a weak yen is most successful in encouraging inbound tourism,” adding that more measures must be taken to attract overseas tourists.
Japan this week increased its daily limit for arriving tourists from 20,000 to 50,000 and did away with the need for COVID testing before to departure, easing some of the most stringent border controls among developed nations.
