TOKYO: Japan will lift its 50,000 cap on daily arrivals starting Oct 11 as the country further eases its Covid-19 border controls.
Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said Japan will also resume its visa-free policy for individuals entering the country.
The latest moves come amid continued criticisms by tourism, entertainment and other industries at home and abroad for being too stringent and not in tandem with practices followed by other developed nations.
