Japan will allow the entry of certain groups of foreign citizens

The Japanese government plans to allow the entry of foreign nationals with specific residence status (e.g. students, interns) notwithstanding the prohibition, imposed because of the pandemic of coronavirus, reports NewsOnJapan.

Those who temporarily left Japan before the introduction of restrictions, will be able to return to the country if they meet certain requirements. One of them is a negative result for PCR test for coronavirus. Currently, foreigners from 129 countries are not allowed to enter Japan.

The government will also allow foreign officials to travel within the country if they successfully pass the test for the coronavirus.

Japan has loosened restrictions on the entry of residents of Vietnam, and by the end of July plans to allow business travelers from ten countries to travel across the country.
