Japan’s borders to reopen in June
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida indicated that border restrictions would begin to be lifted this summer, which is something that many of us have been looking forward to hearing. The statement was made during a press conference in London on May 5, according to Kyodo News, where Kishida made the announcement.
Despite the fact that we do not have specifics at this time, Kishida has said that the aim is to engage with health experts and evaluate the Covid-19 border measures “in phases.”
According to Bloomberg, in a previous news conference held on the same day, Kishida said that his objective is to make Japan as readily accessible as the other G7 countries by the end of June this year.
That’s especially wonderful news if you’ve been dreaming of taking a vacation in Japan since the other G7 nations (the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Germany, and France) also allow travelers to visit with few or no restrictions.
