Japan to reopen to visitors after two years

After being closed to tourists for two years, Japan is opening its borders to visitors from 98 countries and regions.
 
It marks the most significant moment so far in the country's slow relaxation of  COVID-19 entry restrictions.
 
But some restrictions will remain, including a requirement to visit the country as part of a tour group.
 
Jamaica is among the countries whose nationals will be allowed to enter Japan.
 
Japan implemented some of the world's toughest virus control regimes, and banned foreign visitors from the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
 
Travel restrictions had already been relaxed for foreign residents and business travellers, and the government recently raised the limit on daily foreign arrivals to 20,000 from June 1.
 
Since mid-March international students have also been permitted entry.
