Japan scraps Covid warning on traveling to Vietnam

The Japanese government has scrapped a warning to its citizens against traveling for non-essential purposes to 36 countries and territories, including Vietnam.

Its Foreign Ministry said the 36 have been moved from a Level 2 warning, under which citizens are required to refrain from all non-essential travel, to Level 1, the lowest in its four-point scale, Japan Times reported.
