May 6 2021The Japanese government began to consider a number of measures to strengthen the control of the outbreak against incoming passengers, including a ban on entry from India and other programs.

According to Japan’s A Current Affair news agency reported on the 6th, the specific program includes banning visitors from India and requiring immigrants to be quarantined in designated accommodation institutions for 14 days. In addition, Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the 2nd has asked Japanese citizens in India to consider returning home, and at the time of entry to show a negative certificate of nucleic acid within 72 hours.

Reported that the Japanese government currently designated India as a “variant virus pandemic country”, requiring passengers from India to be quarantined in designated accommodation institutions after 3 days of nucleic acid testing, if the results are negative, can leave the designated facilities to continue to accept 11 days of isolation. But amid India’s growing outbreak of coronavirus, people of insight are calling on the government to tighten immigration controls.
