NHK reported that Japan’s stringent anti-coronavirus protocols at ports of entry were relaxed beginning today, saying that travelers from certain nations and regions, including the United States, will no longer be required to self-quarantine upon arrival if they present proof that they have received three doses of vaccine. The cap on the number of arrivals, including Japanese returnees, was also raised from 3,500 to 5,000. As more than 400,000 foreigners, including students and trainees, who had obtained visas before the pandemic hit in January 2020, have been waiting for the restrictions to be eased, the network projected that it may take some time for most of them to be able to enter the country.
