Japan faces question of when and how to reopen borders

https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/20...s-coronavirus/

Neighboring countries such as China and South Korea are calling for an easing of entry restrictions

Japan is facing the difficult question of when and how to ease its coronavirus-induced entry restrictions for foreign visitors, in order to kick-start an economy dependent on trade and tourism.

Reopening its borders as soon as possible is a key challenge for Japan after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics were rescheduled to next year due to the coronavirus pandemic. “We can’t keep our nation closed forever,” a government source said.

Motegi indicated that, in deciding the countries for which Japan will relax entry restrictions, the government will take into account their contributions to the economy and their border control measures for Japan.

Japan may be able to learn lessons from China and South Korea about reopening borders while blocking infected people from overseas, observers said.

The two Asian neighbors have started to allow entry by people with certificates of negative results in coronavirus tests if they test negative in fresh tests.

If this is true. Singapore might be right below at the pecking order. China most likely will be the first to be allowed entry.

Maybe with a testing medical certificate before entry? Otherwise difficult to control when it spreads again.

Hopefully soon.

Even if they charge me cost of testing, I would pay gladly

Once you go into lockdown or CB, there is no way out. SG is a good example.

But Japan lifting the state of emergency does not mean that they will open up their borders for international travel yet.

There is still a backlog of residents of Japan who have been stranded out of the country that need to be addressed first.

Just the 1st step. At least they are out of their "Lockdown"

Life can go back to normal and if their cases still remain low without the 2nd wave maybe we can see hope of returning to Japan this year.
