Japanese business travelers enter Vietnam after easing of ban

JIJI. HANOI – Some 150 Japanese business travelers arrived in Vietnam on Thursday, marking the first such entry since Tokyo and Hanoi agreed last week to mutually ease restrictions imposed as part of the fight against the novel coronavirus outbreak.

A Vietnam Airlines flight carrying the Japanese travelers arrived at Van Don International Airport in northern Vietnam.
The governments of the two countries said on June 19 that they would mutually relax entry restrictions related to the pandemic in stages to resume business travel between the two countries.
Around 440 Japanese business travelers are expected to enter Vietnam in the three days through Saturday thanks to the easing of restrictions. After arrival, they are required to undergo coronavirus tests and to be quarantined for 14 days at hotels.
The two governments will discuss additionally easing Vietnam’s entry restrictions so that more Japanese business people can travel to the Southeast Asian country, while promoting talks on visits to Japan by members of the Vietnamese business community, including technical trainees.
