What does the press say about when will Japan open border?

Since his speech in London beginning of May when Japan’s prime Minister Fumio Kishida said he would loosen Japan’s virus-related border controls in line with other wealthy democracies next month, Japan has started making steps towards the full opening.

All news sources agree that Japan border opening is long overdue. Japan is currently the only G-7 country that has not yet opened for tourist travel without quarantine. Borders have been getting looser with allowing more and more business travellers and students to enter the country already, the number reaching 10,000 daily arrivals from starting 3,500.

Business representatives of Japan’s top business lobby are continuing to urge the Prime Minister Fumio Kishida to open border. Another attractive aspect of the current events in Japanese economy is weakening yen which will make travel to Japan even more affordable.

All indicators are in favor that the pressure is growing within and that the announcement that Japan will open borders completely is coming soon. Check out the latest articles in English to find out more, or contact us directly.
