Japan to ease entry for foreign business travelers on 3-day stays

No-quarantine rule seen targeting Thais, Taiwanese, Australians and New Zealanders

An arrival gate at Haneda Airport in Tokyo: Japan is working on a program that would allow short-term business travelers from certain Asia-Pacific territories quarantine-free entry.

TOKYO -- The Japanese government will allow business travelers who plan to stay no more than 72 hours to enter the country without quarantining, Nikkei has learned, as it eases up on COVID-19 restrictions in an effort to revive the economy.

The quarantine-free entry procedure could begin next month.
