外国人観光客の入国再開へ 月内に実証ツアー開始

Nikkei -- May 17
The Japanese government will begin a trial project this month on accepting fully vaccinated inbound tourists, the Japan Tourism Agency said on Tuesday, ahead of its broader easing of COVID-19 border control measures slated for June.

Small groups of tourists will be accepted from four countries -- the U.S., Australia, Thailand and Singapore -- to test the effectiveness of measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The trial project will focus on package tours in which Japanese travel agencies manage participants' activities. Participants from the four countries will need to meet certain conditions, such as being triple-vaccinated, and travel agencies will need to accompany them on predetermined itineraries.

The government will develop guidelines for businesses on how to handle people coming to Japan based on the results of the project.
