URGENT: Japan eases COVID-19 advisory for all overseas trips

Politics Society

The Japanese government on Wednesday eased its travel warning over the coronavirus pandemic for 76 countries and areas, such as Australia and Taiwan, no longer requesting that residents in Japan refrain from nonessential trips to any country. The Foreign Ministry said it lowered the travel advisory for those areas, also including Mexico and Turkey, from the second-lowest Level 2 on its four-point scale to Level 1, which advises Japanese nationals traveling to those regions to "stay fully alert."
