Japan to remove overseas ban to 10 countries, including Australia

Australians could be amongst those countries allowed into Japan next month, with the country expected to ease its international borders.

There are reports Japan is planning to remove a ban on overseas travel to around 10 countries.

From October 1, the government will allow the entry of tourists with permission to stay in the country for more than three months.


While both Australia and New Zealand are expected to be amongst those allowed into the country, due to our low coronavirus numbers.

It’s hoped the move will help boost tourism for the nation, with the hopes that other countries will adopt similar rules.

Japanese residents will be able to travel to that list of countries as well, provided the receiving country allows it.

But, they would have to quarantine for two weeks on return to the country.
