By Kyodo News 23 September 2020
TOKYO—The Japanese government is considering easing its coronavirus-related travel restrictions as early as Oct. 1 to allow entry to foreign nationals for long-term stays of three months or longer, sources with knowledge of the plans said Wednesday.
Around 1,000 foreign visitors would be allowed into Japan daily under the eased restrictions, with increased testing capacity at airports to accommodate them. Tourists will still be excluded from the country, the sources said.
