Targeting 12 countries/regions such as China and Korea
First, we will consider permitting re-entry/entry of residence status holders for those who have left the area with re-entry permit by the day before the designated area for entry refusal.
Expected to start on the condition that additional quarantine measures such as pre-departure PCR tests will be taken.
As of July 2020, there are approximately 2.63 million foreign nationals with a status of residence, approximately 108,000 in four categories including permanent residents and permanent residents, spouses of Japanese and permanent residents, and approximately 100,000 others. A total of about 208,000 people are leaving Japan.
Expand target countries/regions for stepwise measures for resumption of international traffic.
We will start consultations and coordination with Cambodia, Singapore, South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Macau, Brunei, Malaysia, Myanmar, Mongolia, Laos, and Taiwan, where the infection situation is stable.
In addition to requiring a PCR test for entry from areas where entry is denied, it requires no use of public transportation, maintains a waiting period of 14 days, proof of inspection before entry, and storage of location information for 14 days after entry.
If you wish to do business activities during the 14-day waiting period, you will be asked to submit a “Japan activity plan”.
In other countries and regions, in consideration of business needs, etc., the stay period is limited to 72 hours in principle, and the use of business jets by a small number of people and further restrictions on places to visit and contact persons are required to prevent epidemics. We develop a framework that allows traffic to flow under the following requirements.
