Like many countries, Japan closed its borders in 2020 to stop the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Unlike other immigration policies, the #JapanTravelBan barred the entry of those with valid visas.
In 2022, as almost every other nation in the world has reopened to quarantine-free tourism, Japan continues to ban even essential travel. This harms individuals and industries, notably tourism. It damages Japan’s economy and tarnishes its reputation.
Here are three simple ways:
Follow #JapanTravelBan on Twitter and other social networks to see the latest news and updates
Add #JapanTravelBan to your social media posts, and when you share others’ words and media
Write to officials in Japan (and your own country) to voice concerns about the #JapanTravelBan
Email us with media inquiries, to request clarification or simply for moral support. We’re all in this together!
