After quickly closing its international travel borders once the Coronavirus pandemic got out of hand, Japan is now looking to open up to travelers starting October. The Japanese government drew criticism for its initial closure as non-citizens that resided in the nation on work or student visas but were traveling outside the country when the borders closed have been denied reentry.
Curbing its daily case numbers despite a number of spikes, the Japanese government will reopen travel to Japan from all countries worldwide next month. Remaining vigilant, those entering Japan will still be required to complete a two-week quarantine period before being allowed to join the general public. It is important to note that inbound traffic will be limited to just 1,000 people per day.
In case you missed it, the CDC wants to cancel this Halloween as we know it.
