Before the official opening, Japan will welcome small groups of tourists on tour from Australia, the US, Singapore and Thailand.
Under the pilot program, 50 Australian, American, Singaporean and Thai tourists will visit Japan in the last week of May. These are the first international tourists to enter the country after more than two years of closure.
The Japan Tourism Board said that guests must have all three vaccinations, follow a package tour, with a guide. Guests are subject to government-specified schedules – details on time and destination are yet to be announced. Each tour has a maximum of four people.
These 50 guests entered Japan on a special visa, not a tourist visa. The government will rely on the results of this pilot program to compile guidance on Covid-19 prevention measures, send it to tour operators, hotels, tour operators…
Japan is one of the Asian countries that still restrict entry, in the context that many countries in the region have opened their doors. Currently, the country has allowed 10,000 people to enter a day, including Japanese citizens, international students and business people. The government is also considering increasing the limit to 20,000 people in the coming weeks. Currently, foreign tourists are not allowed to enter the country as tourism.
