The Japanese government started accepting new entry applications Nov. 8 from companies and educational institutions for individuals from overseas, easing restrictions that were introduced in January amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The COVID-19 quarantine period has been cut to three days from 10 for business travelers who have been vaccinated as progress in inoculations has been made around the world.

“We have taken a step toward easing some of the restrictions as infections have been declining and in response to strong demand by the business community,” Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihiko Isozaki said at a news conference.

Companies and educational institutions must file the required documents in advance and receive government approval to host individuals from overseas on condition they supervise those entering the country accordingly.

The farm ministry began receiving many inquiries Nov. 8 related to the application process for technical interns, as the country is facing a shortage of workers in the agricultural sector due to the graying and declining population.

The new measure comes after Japan has seen a sharp decline in COVID-19 cases following this summer’s fifth wave of infections as economic activities have continued to resume. (Kyodo)
