NEW DELHI/BEIJING -- A growing number of governments have imposed new restrictions on travelers from Japan as the novel coronavirus spreads there, grouping the country with outbreak hot spots such as South Korea and Italy.

India has suspended all visas issued on or before Tuesday to travelers from Japan as well as those from Italy, Iran and South Korea. In a revised travel advisory, the government said the suspension covers all regular and electronic visas, including those granted to Japanese and South Koreans upon arrival.
