Japan Set to Reopen in June

Read Time:52 Seconds

May 16. While much of the world has now opened up – in some form or other – to international travelers, some countries have been much slower to lower entry restrictions and encourage the return of tourists.

Take Japan, for instance. Tourists have been barred from entering Japan for the best part of two years. While the country opened up in April to some overseas residents, business travelers and foreign students, tourists are still banned from obtaining visas.

However, that might not be the case for much longer. Last week Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced the country is aiming to reopen to international tourists in June. Which means that your trip of a lifetime may be just a month away!

Kishida says that Japan will be reopening in stages, with the government monitoring the impact of the recent Golden Week holiday (April 29 to May 5) before making a firm decision. The Japan Times has reported that the country may welcome small tour groups before opening its doors to general tourism.
