Yomiuri wrote that coordination is underway within the GOJ to reopen as early as next month Japan’s borders to people who plan to visit on business for less than three days, saying that such travelers will not be required to self-quarantine upon arrival if they test negative for COVID-19 and present plans to the immigration authorities specifying where they will go while in Japan. Businesspeople from some 30 countries and regions, including China, Taiwan, and South Korea, will be allowed to enter the country under the program, but those from the U.S., India, and other nations where the coronavirus is still raging might not be permitted. The GOJ is reportedly inclined to ease the entry restrictions on “very short-term” business travelers from certain countries unilaterally without making reciprocal arrangements in a bid to rebuild the Japanese economy swiftly.
