Asia-Pacific countries begin to ease pandemic-related travel bans, but hurdles remain.
As coronavirus cases falling, Asia-Pacific countries including Singapore, Australia and Japan are gradually easing some international travel restrictions. They hope it would revive their economies.
International travel in Asia has collapsed during the pandemic due to border closures. The passenger numbers down 97% in August, according to the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines.
Although European countries that had been more open add fresh travel restrictions as cases rise, in Asia the trend is toward easing, though not always on a bilateral basis.
