Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced that Japan will resume visa-free entry for individual visitors on October 11, bringing border regulations back to pre-pandemic levels for the first time in over two years. Prior to the pandemic, 68 countries and regions, including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, and the United States, were permitted visa-free short-term travel to Japan. Since the worldwide vaccination effort, most other economies have reopened to tourism, leaving Japan as one of the few countries in the world that is still inaccessible to tourists.
Prior to COVID-19, a record 31.8 million tourists visited Japan in 2019, making it one of the most sought-after travel destinations in Asia. As borders reopen, IAFOR is looking forward to welcoming delegates back to Japan, and providing them with opportunities to connect, share and nurture new knowledge and ideas.
The following IAFOR conferences are taking place in Japan over the next 12 months.
