Japan last month blocked all new arrivals after confirmation of a new strain of the deadly corona virus in the UK and other countries, but retained entry to businesses from ten Asian countries and Taiwan.
As a first step in tightening entry restrictions following the declaration of a state of emergency, the Japanese government intends to suspend the entry of all travelers regardless of whether their countries have confirmed the corona virus. ۔
According to sources, no foreigners will be allowed to enter Japan except for those whose relatives have special rites or for special reasons such as the birth of a child.
Prime Minister Suga Yoshihide said in a statement last week that he intended to ban travel to or from those countries or territories.
While a new strain of the corona virus has been confirmed, his party and other leaders said the government’s move would be ambiguous.
