As part of further reducing border measures implemented to curb the spread of COVID-19, the Japanese government intends to suspend tourist visa requirements for citizens of some nations, according to a Monday report by Fuji News Network (Sep 12).

According to FNN, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida might make a decision this week over the loosening, which would also permit independent travelers 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 last week increased the daily cap on entering travelers from 20,000 to 50,000 and removed the requirement for COVID-19 testing before to departure, eliminating some of the most stringent border controls among major economies.
