MANILA, Philippines — Two countries in Asia – Laos and Afghanistan – have lifted inbound restrictions on Filipino travelers, subject to flight availability and medical protocols, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said yesterday.

According to the DFA, Japan has gradually opened up inbound entry for students, dependents and technical interns but still prohibit entry of short-stay travelers, including tourists.
