Tokyo: The Japanese government is planning to reduce the quarantine period from 10 to three days for most vaccinated travelers coming to the country for business purposes.
According to the report of Xinhua news agency, under the new rules, businessmen arriving in Japan will be demanded to self-quarantine for three days.
From day four, they will be allowed to use public transport and eat out if they test negative for the virus, while those companies will be required to keep a record of their whereabouts.
The new rules will come into effect from November 8.
The government previously required international arrivals to quarantine for 14 days, to help contain the spread of COVID-19.
In October, the period was reduced to 10 days for those who completed the vaccination.
Meanwhile, the authorities plan to allow fresh admissions into the country for foreign students, who had been closed in principle.
The government also plans to increase the maximum number of foreign arrivals from the current 3,500 per day to 5,000, with effect from the end of this month.
