TOKYO -- Japan plans to permit Japanese and foreign national business travelers with residency status to reenter the country without having to isolate for two weeks, Nikkei has learned.

The two-week self-quarantine measure will be waived for returning business travelers who submit an action plan. The travelers will also have to refrain from using public transit.
