From November 8 onwards, the Japanese government announced that the Covid-19 quarantine period for vaccinated business travellers from outside Japan will be reduced to three days. According to reports, the relaxed quarantine rules will apply to short-term business travellers who are inoculated with Covid-19 vaccines that the Japanese authorities deem effective.
Companies that accept them must report ahead of time on their plans for the seven days following quarantine and supervise them accordingly. Business travellers must currently undergo a 10-day quarantine period upon entering the country. Long-term travellers who are fully vaccinated, such as students and technical intern trainees, will be allowed to enter Japan with a 14-day quarantine period, according to the government.
Schools and businesses that want to accept them will have to report ahead of time what they plan to do in Japan and how they'll be monitored. Beginning November 8, the government will accept applications from their sponsors. Tourist entry, on the other hand, has yet to be opened. "This time, the measures do not cover tourists," Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Seiji Kihara said. The government, on the other hand, is considering a plan that would allow visitors to enter the country in stages.
