Saturday’s Yomiuri wrote that only 16 nations and regions, including Italy, Australia, and Hong Kong, have recognized Japan’s COVID-19 vaccine passport as a legitimate document exempting travelers from mandatory quarantine or PCR testing upon entry. The daily said other countries are apparently hesitant to follow suit since Tokyo has no plans to recognize their vaccine passports in return for the time being on account of the ongoing COVID-19 resurgence.
