Beginning September 7, Japan will relax border controls for Covid-19.

According to Fumio Kishida, Japan intends to reduce the current self-isolation requirements for Covid-19 patients from 10 days for those who exhibit symptoms to one week for those who do not.

The pre-departure Covid-19 test will no longer be required for travelers who have received at least three doses of the required vaccines, according to plans unveiled by travelersapanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Wednesday. He will also look into raising daily entrance limits as early as next month.


All arrivals are currently required to provide negative PCR test results within 72 hours after departure, a requirement that has been criticized as being onerous. Japan has implemented some of the harshest border restrictions for the coronavirus.


Earlier on Wednesday, Kishida spoke via video conference with government ministers and health experts. Beginning on September 7, participants who have obtained at least one booster vaccination are exempt from the pre-entry exam, according to reporters at an online news conference.


After testing positive for Covid-19 on Sunday, Kishida has been on duty while being isolated. From his official residence, he remarked, "We want to gradually remove border controls to allow admission processes to be as easy as those of other Group of Seven countries."


The existing 20,000 daily limits for incoming travelers would be increased, according to Kishida, "as quickly as practicable." According to media sources, the government may decide to increase the daily ceiling as early as next month by more than tripling it to 50,000.


We must not panic and instead analyze the traits of the omicron variant, Kishida said, adding that although the battle against the virus is difficult. While balancing the infection measures, we'll quicken our replies.


According to Kishida, Japan intends to reduce the current self-isolation requirements for Covid-19 patients from 10 days for those who have symptoms to one week for those who do not. These specifics are being finalized by officials, he said.


For the first time in two years, Japan partially opened its borders to foreign tourists in June, but only for those who agreed to sign up for guided package trips. Under these limitations, there are fewer participants.


Businesses both inside and outside of Japan have urged the government to relax border controls to help the economy, particularly the tourism sector, which has been severely harmed by the pandemic. But because the nation has been dealing with the seventh wave of diseases, many Japanese are apprehensive of further reducing border controls.


Patients with minor symptoms like fever, sore throats, and coughs have deluged clinics due to a dearth of testing and test kits at pharmacies and online.
