TOKYO: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said the country would ease entry restrictions for people coming from Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and Vietnam, provided they can prove they are free from the novel coronavirus.

Foreign travellers from these countries will be allowed into Japan on condition they submit negative results from a polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, test and an itinerary detailing where they plan to visit during their stay, Abe said at a meeting of the government task force on the Covid-19 response.
