The Japanese government will look to begin discussions around mid-July to resume flights for certain qualified business purposes to China, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos and Mongolia. Further details on the Japanese government’s plans for negotiations are expected to be announced soon. As discussed in our prior post on  our COVID-19 Blog, this is in addition to similar discussions that have already began with Vietnam, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. In late June, Vietnam allowed entry of approximately 450 business travellers from Japan into the country (subject to PCR testing upon arrival and a 14-day hotel quarantine).
