DHAKA: Japan is set to expand its entry ban on visitors from Bangladesh, India and nine other nations as part of border control steps to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

Japanese foreign ministry raised its travel advisory for 11 countries — Afghanistan, Argentina, India, El Salvador, Ghana, Guinea, Kyrgyz, Tajikistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh and South Africa — urging against any trips to the areas.

The expansion will take effect on May 27.

‘Japan will maintain the current set of border control measures until the end of June,’ Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe said at a meeting of a government task force on the coronavirus response on Monday.
